Ben Decker, head of gaming services at Xbox, shared some thoughts on the future of Xbox Game Pass.
I have long been an Xbox Game Pass believer. The subscription service has brought me several hours of gaming joy for not that much cash when you really think about it. So, it makes me happy to see that Microsoft wants to bring the service to wherever they possibly can.
During an interview with Game Reactor, Ben Decker, head of gaming services at Xbox, shared his thoughts on the future of the service. He stated: “You know, we would like to see Game Pass on all platforms ultimately and I think that is a long term goal. We don’t have any specific plans today, but we would love to see Game Pass really go everywhere.”
It would definitely be interesting to see how Microsoft would implement the expansion. I am positive that bringing the service to mobile devices and the Nintendo Switch could be possible through xCloud, Microsoft’s game streaming service that is launching sometime in October. I think the difficult part would be getting Nintendo on board. However, the relationship between the two gaming giants have become very close recently since Cuphead and Ori and the Blind Forest have come to the Switch. So, the possibility might not be as far fetched as you think. Bringing the service to PlayStation devices might be a whole different situation though.
Xbox Game Pass is currently available on Xbox One and PC. If you still haven’t downloaded some of the latest games to come to the service, make sure to snag DMC V or Blair Witch.
