Xbox Game Pass to Receive “Some Really Great Announcements,” Says Spencer
Phil Spencer has recently teased the arrival of some exciting news about things coming to Xbox Game Pass.
With Microsoft pushing back Halo Infinite‘s launch to 2021, it might probably leave the company a bit empty-handed when launching Xbox Series X this Holiday, but Phil Spencer has recently revealed that they will have no changes in plans. He also teased some exciting upcoming news about Xbox Game Pass.
Speaking to Gary Whitta in the latest episode of Animal Talking, Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, reassured fans that Halo Infinite‘s delay isn’t going to affect the launch of Xbox Series X in November. He indicated that the company’s investment on Game Pass will be continued in the future with “some really great, strong, announcements to come about things coming to Game Pass.”
Project xCloud is one of the new features that will be available as of September 15th through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, allowing subscribers to play all Game Pass titles plus their own purchased games on Xbox consoles, PCs, and Android devices. However, it’s yet to be seen what are the other surprising coming to the service.
As you may know, all the Xbox Game Studios productions will be available on the Xbox Game Pass library at launch. Microsoft has also signed a deal with some third-party studios to release their upcoming next-gen projects on Game Pass, including STALKER 2, The Ascent, The Gunk, and The Medium.
With the July’s Xbox Games Showcase, we get to know more about the next projects of nine Xbox Game Studios teams. Compulsion Games, InXile Entertainment, The Coalition, The Initiative, and Mojang Studios are yet to reveal their upcoming titles. That said, I don’t think any of them could bring a launch title for Xbox Series X, except for Compulsion Games that hasn’t been around since 2016.
The next Xbox showcase is rumored to get live later this month, though some new reports suggest that the event might be delayed to September.
