Xbox Game Pass Is Coming To PC, Microsoft CEO Confirms
The Xbox Game Pass has been launched for Xbox One a while back, allowing players to download and play the games available on it by paying a subscription fee. Microsoft has been constantly expanding the total number of available titles, and it seems like the company is going to expand the service itself by launching it on PC.
The Xbox Game Pass coming to PC has been confirmed by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella during the company's latest earnings call. The Game Pass launch on PC, Nadella said, will help the expanding of the Xbox community.
Xbox has the key gaming community and the monetization capabilities. Whether it's first-party games or third-party games, we are best-in-class in that monetization and that's what's reflected in the results.
So given that structural position, we are going to make sure that we keep increasing the strength of the community. You see that already with Minecraft going to all platforms and that increasing the intensity of the community and you'll see us do more of that. Obviously, bringing Game Pass to even the PC is going to be a big element of that.
As already mentioned, the Xbox Game Pass offer is increased every month. This month, Dead Island: Riptide and Outlast have been added to the line-up, among other titles.
