Microsoft not bringing Xbox games to iOS

Refuting an earlier report claiming Microsoft would release Xbox games for iOS this year, Microsoft Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer tweeted that the company won’t be bringing Xbox games to non-Microsoft devices. Spencer said the earlier article was a “translation error.” The first report also noted Age of Empires would be coming to iPhone — Microsoft later released a statement to Polygon claiming that there were no further announcements about Xbox games on iOS beyond Age of Empires.

This is stupid. What is Microsoft going to do with those old games? Hoard them? The Xbox ONE won’t play them. At least they can make some more money on them.
