Microsoft Further Detail Current to Next-Gen Smart Delivery Line-Up
Microsoft has spoken a lot about their Smart Delivery of titles as we edge closer to the next-gen Xbox Series X console. Smart Delivery means that once you purchase a Smart Delivery enabled game on the current gen Xbox One or Xbox One X consoles, if you make the jump to the next-gen Xbox Series X at any point, you will get a free upgrade to any compatible game. It doesn’t matter if you own the game digitally or physically on a disc, or even via Xbox Game Pass, all compatible games will receive the free next-gen upgrade.
All you need to do to receive the free next-gen upgrade, is to already own the game and then it’s just a simple press of the button to download the Smart Delivery update for that particular game. The Smart Delivery will not only support First-Party Microsoft games, but also to Third-Party titles, should their respective publisher/developer take advantage of this feature.
On day one of the Xbox Series X launch, there will be a Smart Delivery update for Gears 5 and the highly anticipated Halo Infinite, while Third-Party titles such as Cyberpunk 2077 will also have a Day One update at no extra cost. Microsoft has also detailed that your library and game progression will carry over from the current-gen to next-gen console.
