When Microsoft launched their Xbox Game Pass initiative, the subscription service was originally designed for gamers to access a wide library of older games at a low monthly rate. The variety of available titles is nice, but fans have since spoken out on wanting to play more of the latest blockbusters on the service—and it looks like Xbox is poised to deliver.
Xbox head Phil Spencer has announced a major expansion for the service, revealing that Xbox Game Pass will soon incorporate all Xbox One-exclusive titles and Microsoft Studios games on the day they launch. This upgrade to the service begins on March 20th with the launch of Rare’s
Sea of Thieves, then with State of Decay and Crackdown 3 as they are released, as well as new entries in Microsoft’s other franchises like Halo, Forza, and Gears of War.
Spencer has also confirmed more choices in the subscription offerings, such as a 6-month subscription card at GameStop for $59.99 so that “Xbox Game Pass will have valuable ambassadors in popular destinations for gamers to discover new and exciting games and enjoy community.”
