    Where are Xbox games stored on Microsoft's end?


    Today I decided to download an old game on my Xbox One. Destiny. While it was installing, I wondered where do the files I download come from? Do they come from servers at the company that made the game; Bungie? Or does every game published on Xbox get their game files stored at Microsoft's servers? I mainly ask this because download speeds seem to be inconsistent based on what I'm installing.

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.

    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today Manerum

    It depends on the game, some games are stored on the Xbox servers, while other games are stored on the developer's servers.

    So, this is why you experience different download speeds depending on the game

    Hope it helps, feel free to ask further questions if necessary!

    Greetings

    Xbox games are stored on Microsoft servers. While developers may manage the network functions, all purchases, uploads and downloads are handled by Microsoft

    Hiya!

    Paul from the Xbox Forums Team here to assist. Where did you purchase the game, was it on the Microsoft store or at your local game store? Sometimes at local game stores they include a code on the receipt. Please let us know where the game was purchased.

    Happy Gaming!

    I haven't got my code

    Hi there!

    Xbox don't sell digital codes - it's all done on the Xbox Store and you get the games instantly.

    Where did you buy the code from? Was it from the Microsoft Store?

    Buyed an add one for Fortnite and i did not get it in the game.

    where did you purchase the addon, if it was via xbox store/windows store that is for console only, you have to go through the ingame store as it has nothing to do with microsoft.
    It buyed with the microsoft store online.
