Microsoft’s Azure servers, part of the company’s cloud tech, is available to any developer who wants to use it for their games, even PlayStation 4 exclusives.


Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, reiterated recently that Microsoft’s often-discussed cloud tech, which includes computation, dedicated servers and other server-based solutions, is available to any game.

The executive was asked on Twitter if there’s a chance Titanfall 2 would become exclusive to Xbox One so that it would benefit from Azure services like the first game had. Spencer didn’t comment on Titanfall 2 specifically, but confirmed that any developer could use the service, even if the game is not on Xbox.

Titanfall 2 is coming to PS4, alongside PC and Xbox One.
