Microsoft has announced that the number of Xbox Game Pass subscribers has increased by 50 percent within six months.
Xbox Game Pass is doing well
Xbox has currently has about 15 million subscribers of Game Pass. The last time Microsoft announced anything about this was in April. Then there were already ten million subscribers. With Game Pass you get, for a fixed amount per month, access to just over a hundred games, which are switched on a regular basis. The subscription to the game service costs 9.99 euros per month.
It’s not surprising that Xbox Game Pass has been doing so well lately. Microsoft is heavily committed to the subscription. It often comes in the spotlight, partly thanks to the games that are added. Not only can you play all kinds of first-party titles from Microsoft’s studios, but titles from third-party developers are also added. This service feels more like the future of Xbox than next-gen consoles (which have gone into pre-order starting today).
Game Pass will likely continue to grow in the future. For example, the shooter Destiny 2 was recently added. There is a lot of criticism of that game, but despite that it remains a popular game among the shooting enthusiasts. In addition, Project xCloud has been merged into Game Pass; this combined service is called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. As a result, you can also stream any game within the subscription to an Android smartphone, Windows PC or Xbox. And let’s not forget that Microsoft announced on Monday that it wants to acquire Zenimax Studios, which includes game series such as Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein and Doom. So those will all be first-party titles, which may also come to Game Pass.
