Microsoft Bringing “At Least One” First-Party Game To Game Pass Every Quarter
Our understanding of the Xbox Game Pass might soon be changing. Until now, the game pass has been a great way for Xbox and PC users to catch up on a wide backlog of games, for many players keeping them from needing to buy expensive AAA titles with enough indies and big games to keep them busy until the next console generation at the very least.
Even with that alone, at a lump fee every month, was more than enough to warrant the price of admission. But now, an announcement has been made that suggests the game pass is just getting started.
Microsoft Bringing First-Party Games To Game Pass Every Quarter
In a new blog post on Xbox Wire, Xbox has confirmed that they’re working on game devices designed exclusively for game streaming, and are to bring the game pass experience to TVs. The subscription service looks to be expanding far beyond Xbox hardware, but that doesn’t mean the Xbox experience will stray.
In the post, Microsoft have suggested something huge for the first-party titles coming to Xbox. The post reads “With more than 23 studios worldwide creating games for Xbox, our goal is to release at least one new, first party game into Game pass every quarter. Role playing games, shooters, strategy titles, adventure games, and more are all being built by our first party teams to ensure that there is a steady stream of compelling exclusive content to explore.”
However big these games end up being is yet to be soon, but if they’re sitting comfortably on par with the likes of Halo Infinite and Psychonauts 2 then Xbox fans are in for a treat. The game pass is undergoing some big changes, but they all seem to be in favour of subscribers. We may have once thought that game pass was the best subscription service for players, but now, it seems it could be better than we’ve ever thought.
