“We think that playing games together may be a great way to build community.” So, Xbox is dedicated to expanding the number of platforms on which gamers may enjoy its catalog of games. As part of that goal, Boosteroid is working to make Xbox PC games available to its users. This will include Activision Blizzard games like “Call of Duty” once the deal is finalized.”
Boosteroid CEO Ivan Shvaichenko was excited to hear about Microsoft’s plans to expand access to gaming across additional devices and platforms.

The collaboration with Microsoft is viewed as an additional means to this end.

Boosteroid is a Ukrainian R&D company with locations in both Kyiv and Kharkiv. It was founded in 2017.

Furthermore, in spring 2023, Microsoft is expected to launch PC Game Pass in Ukraine, providing even more options for gamers to enjoy their favorite titles.
