Since the turn of the millennium, Gameloft have established themselves as one of the very top innovators in their field, creating games for various platforms. With the mobile scene being their bread and butter, you would have been able to enjoy a whole host of their titles on your iOS or Android device. Now though they are partnering up with Microsoft to see the Xbox Live service roll out across the mobile gaming landscape.

Coming about via a new partnership with Microsoft and Gameloft, we will soon be seeing the likes of Asphalt 9: Legends, Asphalt 8: Airborne, and Dragon Mania Legends being among the first mobile games to make use of the brilliant Xbox Live SDK, pushing Gameloft titles to new levels in the process.

This means that gamers will have streamlined access to popular Xbox Live features and functionality that has never before been made available on mobile.

Microsoft’s announcement, which was made at the //Build Conference by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, confirms a whole suite of features for players with Xbox Live accounts, allowing them to unlock Xbox achievements, view their Xbox friends List, and compare their rankings with Xbox leaderboards, and more.

“We are thrilled to be partnering up with Microsoft to bring the Xbox Live network into Gameloft’s flagship games,” said Baudouin Corman, COO of Gameloft. “As one of the first partners to support Xbox Live on mobile devices, we seek to provide to our community more ways to experience our games and extend their fun, while seamlessly continuing to bring console, PC and mobile together.”

These new Xbox Live updates will be found coming to Asphalt 9, Asphalt 8 and Dragon Mania Legends in the coming year. You can be sure that more features and announcements will be made in the future too.

The question though is whether this is a good move or not? Will it push you to enjoy the mobile scene some more? Or should Xbox Live be situated just in the Xbox ecosystem? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
