Xbox Game Pass Gets Same-Day Launch Titles

In June 2017, Xbox Game Pass launched and brought hundreds of games to players for a monthly fee. Coined as the “Netflix of gaming,” Xbox Game Pass has since provided an expansive library of games and consistently grows its collection. Today, Microsoft announced that your monthly subscription to Xbox Game Pass will give you access to some of the biggest game releases the day the game is released. This means that titles like Rare’s upcoming Sea of Thieves and future Xbox exclusive titles will become available as soon as they’re launched!

Today, we announced that all new games published by Microsoft Studios will be released into Xbox Game Pass on the same date as their global release. This means that when “Sea of Thieves” launches on March 20, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass to all members.

This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like “Sea of Thieves,” “State of Decay 2,” and “Crackdown 3” but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch.
