Xbox Games Start Showing Up On Windows Store Ahead Of Anniversary Update Merger
Later this Summer, Microsoft will launch the Anniversary update for Windows 10- the update promises to be significant and important for a whole host of reasons, but for app developers and gamers, the most important thing it will be doing will be to unify the Xbox Store and the Windows Store, making good on Microsoft’s promise of one unified app store providing universal apps and games to a combined audience of Windows and Xbox owners.
Now, ahead of the update and the merger that it will apparently bring along with it, several apps and games from the Xbox Store are already showing up on the Windows Store, reports OneTile. These apps are all hidden from the public, so you can’t stumble upon them or even search for them on the Windows Store just yet- but they are on the Store regardless.
Let’s see if Microsoft’s hope of a unified Windows/Xbox Store brings their dreams of being the go to ecosystem for developers to fruition.
