Xbox Game Pass Will Get All Microsoft Studios Titles on Release Date

Games with Gold February 2018 will be announced soon

Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Game Pass subscription service to include all new titles from the company's other Microsoft Studios on the day they launch. A subscription based service that lets Xbox owners download and play any game they want from a rather extensive library. Within a few months, the service was available in 40 countries. Now it seems the service will be a cornerstone of Xbox's distribution plans going forward. You'll have to excuse my excitement there as the Xbox Game Pass is already a pretty good deal for gamers but this is just the icing on the cake. This will also include future titles in Microsoft's biggest franchises, like Halo and Forza.

Microsoft rolled out Xbox Game Pass back in June after it was tested by Insiders for several months. This means that for $9.99 a month subscribers can play the next Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and Crackdown title, as well as Sea of Thieves and tons more.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer accompanied the announcement with a statement, mentioning that Microsoft has "only scratched the surface" of what this new model can bring to the fans and the industry.

The new console is the smallest Xbox ever, however, despite the smaller footprint, the design looks pretty much similar to the ongoing Xbox One S. The Xbox One X lacks dedicated Kinect port and comes with just the HDMI-in port. Microsoft will now start shipping the Xbox One X in black color with 1TB of storage.

"We truly believe that consumers have the right to experience a game with the device of their choice, with people they want and the game that they want to play". These cards would retail for $59.99, giving a further option to players wanting to buy into Xbox Game Pass.

Elsewhere at Microsoft, the company has been trying to migrate Office software users to monthly subscription plans as well, which has the effect of making revenue more predictable and continuous as customers renew plans or set them to re-up automatically.
