Xbox has recently announced that customers would be seeing a noticeable improvement in cloud gaming, as the tech giant has plans to replace the Xbox One S server blades with Xbox Series X. Many users have been reporting that many games including the likes of Rainbow Six Siege have already started showing improvements in loading times and updated graphical options. Over on Twitter, The Verge’s Tom Warren uploaded a clip of Rainbow Six Siege running on xCloud with the 120 FPS option, which would only be available on the Xbox Series X hardware.

Microsoft still hasn’t made any official announcement regarding this, so fans are pleasantly surprised to see such an improvement to the experience. According to Xbox head of cloud gaming Kareem Choudhry, Xbox is still in the final stages of internal testing for the transition. Choudhary previously said that Xbox Series X server blades would be in place in the “next few weeks.”

Xbox is aggressively expanding its cloud offerings, which is at direct odds against its competition, Sony who is still using PS3’s Cell architecture to power its PS Now service. Cloud gaming is becoming more of a reality than ever, and seeing Microsoft making all the required moves to improve the experience is genuinely great.
