Control Could be Coming to Xbox Game Pass Next Month After All, Tweet Suggests
Remedy’s Control could be coming to Xbox Game Pass next month after all, a recent tweet from the official Xbox Game Pass suggests.
Remember when Xbox head Phil Spencer nonchalantly let slip that Control is coming to Microsoft’s gaming subscription service? According to Spencer, the title didn’t reach enough people and adding the game to Game Pass could change that. “I thought Control was really good, it didn't reach enough people, so I'm glad to see it's coming in to Game Pass so hopefully more people play it”, Spencer said in a Mixer stream last year. “It’s a game that should be played from our friends at Remedy.

Both the Xbox Game Pass team and 505 Games stated that there were no plans to bring the game to Game Pass last month, there’s still a chance that it might be added next month.
As always, we will keep you updated on this matter.
