Despite launching iOS testing back in February of this year, Microsoft confirmed in a statement to The Verge that is was ending all Project xCloud support for iOS devices effective immediately.
In February, Microsoft launched iOS testing but warned the experience may ‘look and feel different’ to Android, citing the need to comply with App Store policies.
Unfortunately, we do not have a path to bring our vision of cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to gamers on iOS via the Apple App Store.
Apple stands alone as the only general purpose platform to deny consumers from cloud gaming and game subscription services like Xbox Game Pass.
The news echoes a statement published by Apple yesterday, which noted that App Store policies require developers to submit games individually for review and strict rules surrounding remote network connections crucial to streaming services.
