Xbox Game Pass to add future Xbox exclusives on day of release

Ever since Xbox announced their new subscription based Xbox Game Pass on February 28th 2017 to the insider members with a limited amount of games it got a lot of mixed reviews because of the monthly price being £7.99. Then in the last part of the second quarter of 2017 Microsoft opened the Game Pass to everyone with just over 100 games which has since grown to over 160 titles with a mix of Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Original Xbox Games.

Xbox then announced on the 24th of January 2018 that they would be adding 3 Xbox exclusive games to the Game Pass on day of release starting with Sea of Thieves on March 20th and other games such as Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 would follow. The team have since come out and said that they plan to bring all Xbox exclusives including the new Gears of War, Halo and Forza games to the service on day of release. Now with these new additions in mind some may say that Microsoft just supercharged the Game Pass and a lot of Xbox players are very happy about these recent announcements.

Could this be the biggest threat to Playstation and Nintendo yet from Microsoft in this current generation? Well, only time will tell!
