Its no secret that Xbox Game Pass has been a serious game changer for the industry. Microsoft seems to have figured it all out, grabbing major third party titles, interesting indies, and releasing all of their first party games on the service day one. And after all of their acquisitions recently, they keep adding more bang for their buck.
After an already busy Tuesday for Microsoft, they also released a statement about the number of gamers who subscribe to Game Pass. That number has officially hit 25 million subscriptions, which is impressive considering everything Xbox has been through over the last decade.
At the end of their announcement of acquiring Activision Blizzard, Microsoft stated:
“Upon close, we will offer as many Activision Blizzard games as we can within Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, both new titles and games from Activision Blizzard’s incredible catalog. We also announced today that Game Pass now has more than 25 million subscribers. As always, we look forward to continuing to add more value and more great games to Game Pass.”Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming
Microsoft now owns thirty three developers and three publishing arms, including Bethesda and Activision Blizzard, to bolster their Game Pass library with some of the biggest IP in gaming. It will definitely be a challenge for anyone to say that Game Pass isn’t a great deal, especially for fans of western role playing games and first person shooters.
