Microsoft has bolstered Xbox Game Pass in a huge way over the past year, offering all first-party games on day one of release. This has grown considerably to include select third-party titles, in addition to non-gaming promotions with streaming services like Disney Plus and Spotify. Factoring in the upcoming release of Halo Infinite and acquisitions such as Bethesda and Double Fine Productions, the slate ahead is looking incredibly promising for the green brand and it’ll be interesting to see how the service improves in the future.
