Xbox has detailed what Smart Delivery means for players and has highlighted the benefits of the technology, including the belief that you should only have to purchase a cross-gen game once on Xbox.
In their Xbox Wire post, the brand reiterated that all Xbox Game Studios titles that are Optimised for Xbox Series X, including Halo Infinite, will support Smart Delivery. They also detailed how Xbox Game Pass will support Smart Delivery for titles that use the technology, with players being able to utilise Xbox Game Pass and Smart Delivery to play the best version of a game, should the developer make that available to them.
But what about games that would be optimised for Xbox Series X after launch? Using Cyberpunk 2077 as an example, you’ll be able to play it on Xbox Series X at launch in compatibility mode. Once the Xbox Series X optimised version is available, you’ll receive an upgrade, carrying over the progress that you’ve already made.
Xbox also detailed some of the initial titles that will use Smart Delivery, including Halo Infinite, Gears 5, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Destiny 2 and more.
