A few weeks ago, news emerged that Xbox Live was coming to Android and iOS games. While many expected only Microsoft titles — like Minecraft — to support Xbox Achievements and other features, it turns out that third-party developers are adopting the service. Today, Gameloft announced that Xbox Live is coming to its select mobile games, starting with Asphalt 9: Legends, Asphalt 8: Airborne, and Dragon Mania Legends. The company said that "this provides gamers streamlined access to popular Xbox Live features and functionality newly available on mobile."
Players will be able to unlock Xbox Achievements, view their Xbox friends list, and compare their rankings with Xbox Leaderboards, and more. Gameloft's head Baudouin Corman said the following on the announcement.
We are thrilled to be partnering up with Microsoft to bring the Xbox Live network into Gameloft's flagship games. 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.
The new Xbox Live updates will be coming to these games in the coming year. That's not all though, Gameloft said that more features and announcements to be made in the future.
