Not long ago, we heard a rumor that spoke of the possibility that Ubisoft and Microsoft would raise the possibility of the French service’s games being integrated into the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Something similar to what is happening today with EA Play.
A rumor with a more than doubtful basis, a blog little worked and without authority was at the base of all these speculations. However, it seems that by shooting you end up hitting the target, and some personalities close to Xbox have now claimed that there is a possibility, but not in such an ambitious way, otherwise something similar to how it works with SEGA
More publishers on the way to Xbox Game Pass
After the jet of cold water that these nuances brought about, some interesting news with the service is coming to light. In the podcast presented by Jez Corden and Rand Al Thor, they spoke about the matter with a few interesting sentences.
Windows Central editor confirms that you’ve heard that Microsoft talks to all the big video game companies
I’ve heard that yes, there has been some sort of talk about a more widespread partnership between Microsoft and Ubisoft for Game Pass, and not just Ubisoft, other publishers as well. It’s not a big revelation as you might think, because Microsoft didn’t just get EA Play and then they think, ‘we’re going too’. They are trying to convince all publishers to bring their games to Game Pass.
Although this really it’s nothing newAnyone who follows the news from Xbox could say those same words, because it is common sense. However, the fact that it is from someone who has successfully covered almost all Xbox All Digital Edition and Xbox Series data is a plus that lends credibility to the question.
In fact, for Microsoft it is not an option, it is a necessity if it wants its model to be successful. So hopefully that’s all that will happen.
