Xbox Store Games Start Appearing On Windows Store Ahead Of Merger

This Summer, Microsoft will release the Anniversary Update for both Windows 10 and Xbox One. The new update is expected to introduce many new features and improvements for the Xbox One and Windows 10. One of the more important features to come with the Anniversary Update is the new universal store for the Xbox One.

With the Anniversary Update, Microsoft will allow developers to release Universal Windows Apps for the Xbox One. According to an online source, “Microsoft is now actively working to merge the Windows Store and Xbox Store.” Ahead of the merger, Apps and Games have begun to appear on the Windows Store with Metro Redux Bundle, Halo: The Masterchief Collection and Overwatch’s Open Beta, which recently ended.

Alongside the previously mentioned games, apps have also started to appear with EA’s Access Vault making an appearance on the Windows Store. As of this moment, these games and apps are currently hidden from the public and therefore won’t be visible on the Windows Store just yet.

Microsoft is expected to begin testing the upcoming Xbox One update with users by the end of May or early June.
