Xbox Game Pass has expanded to include new releases from Microsoft Studios.
Phil Spencer, Head of Gaming at Xbox, discusses a major update to the Xbox Game Pass program below:
“When we launched Xbox Game Pass in June 2017, we knew we wanted to craft a service with gamers in mind. That meant a diverse, expanding library of over 100 games and counting, matched with one monthly price and unlimited access to download and play full-fidelity experiences.
“We’ve been blown away by the incredible response. Following launch, we heard from fans around the world who wanted Xbox Game Pass in their country. In September, we expanded globally and Xbox Game Pass is now available to fans in 40 countries. We’ve also continued to expand the catalog with new games added to the Xbox Game Pass library every month, so there is always something new to play.”
So that means all new Xbox One exclusive games from Microsoft Studios will go into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. One example being Sea of Thieves, which launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.
Other highlighted titles include State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3 and future unannounced games from franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War.
