Microsoft says no plans for Xbox Live SDK on Switch currently, but more games like Cuphead coming with the service enabled
Microsoft delivered a speech at GDC 2019 today. During the event, future plans for Switch were briefly touched on.

It was also mentioned that we can expect more games like Cuphead to head to Switch with Xbox Live enabled in the future. Microsoft is said to be working with Nintendo to bring achievements to select titles, which makes sense given how Minecraft operates as well as what’s planned for Cuphead.
