Following much speculation, Xbox Head Phil Spencer announced today that titles like Call of Duty would be added to Xbox Game Pass. Nobody actually knew whether or not Activision Blizzard games would be available on Xbox’s cloud gaming service until this morning’s announcement. However, Spencer wants to be clear that the players are the focus of Microsoft’s and Xbox’s efforts.

In order to reach as many people as possible, it entails making well-known games like Call of Duty accessible through Xbox Game Pass. Regardless of the software and hardware users use to play. The service will also feature other Activision Blizzard games outside Call of Duty.

CALL OF DUTY ON XBOX GAME PASS WILL BE JOINED BY DIABLO AND OVERWATCH Future iterations of two more of Activision Blizzard’s most well-known games will be available through Game Pass. both Overwatch and Diablo. Spencer withholds specifics. However, players may generally anticipate at least the following installment from each brand.

Since both Diablo III and Diablo II: Resurrected have console versions. Although this is all welcome news for fans of those shows, no release dates have been announced.

The release of Diablo IV is scheduled at some time in 2023. In October, both Overwatch 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will be released. However, there is no assurance that one of those will be available on Day 1 of Game Pass. Activision Blizzard’s acquisition by Microsoft hasn’t been completed yet. And it’s probable that the business will want to finish it before adding any of ABK’s games to Game Pass.

Call of Duty will continue to be available on PlayStation on the same day that it launches on other platforms, which appears to be a given. Players are once again reassured by Spencer that this is the strategy and that it will be followed.

But he also says that Microsoft and the Xbox team want to expand those gaming communities and make Activision Blizzard’s beloved game library, which includes Overwatch, Diablo, and Call of Duty, available through Game Pass.

This implies that properties other than Call of Duty, Diablo, and Overwatch will eventually be added. Franchises abound at Activision. However, Blizzard only has a small number. And one may hazard some rather accurate predictions as to which ones might be on the way. All of these games—Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft, WarCraft, and World of Warcraft—seem to be options. Of course, WoW would be the biggest. It would be intriguing to observe how joining Game Pass might alter the situation.
