Finnish developer Mainframe had previously confirmed that it was working on a new MMO that will primarily be played through remote servers, and it was claimed that the game would be exclusive to Xbox platforms.

Now, however – according to journalist Jeff Grubb, who previously reported the aforementioned details – the game will be a multiplatform title. According to Grubb, who spoke about this during the recent GamesBeat Decides podcast, Mainframe has raised $23 million in funding, though it’s not from Microsoft, and as such, the game is no longer planned as an Xbox-exclusive, and will instead be a multiplatform title. Grubb also stated that, seemingly, “one was played off the other to try to increase the amount of money they might get.”

Microsoft has been an advocate of cloud gaming for some time now. Its Xbox Cloud Gaming service is offering access to dozens games in combination with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and the Redmond-based giant recently signed a deal with Sega for bringing next-gen cloud gaming to the public as well. Rumours of a Hideo Kojima game that uses cloud technology being published by Xbox have also been doing the rounds – to read up on that, click through here.
