During X019 Microsoft gave an update regarding xCloud announcing that 50 new titles are coming to the service and that it will be available in more regions.
Currently, xCloud is available in the US, UK and Korea, and the selection of games is limited to a few first-party titles such as Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves. So, to expand that list, they announced a whole lot of games from third-party publishers and developers and some more of their own games.
Some highlights being Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Devil May Cry 5, Hitman, and Just Cause 4.
Besides the new games, more invites are being sent to gamers that registered and Western Europe, Canada, Japan, and India will join the program in 2020.
Not only is xCloud coming to new regions, it is coming to new devices. Windows 10 PCs will also join in on the fun next year and they’re working on making it available on even more devices.
Talking about devices, you won’t be limited to your Xbox gamepad, they plan on supporting Razer gamepads and even the PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controller.

Sony and Microsoft are really giving Google a run for their money. It really makes you lose all optimism for Stadia, but time will tell (what we can already presume) what will happen to Stadia.
