Xbox Game Pass as we know it set to be quietly killed off

It’s believed the Xbox Game Pass brand might be getting killed off, and we slowly transition into a new service entirely.

Xbox fans are going to want to keep an eye on the latest news this week, as it’s said the head of the company Phil Spencer will be making an announcement about the future of the brand, and if it’ll be going third-party as the rumours are saying.

On a brighter note check out Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, which looks absolutely fantastic

The latest rumours circulating the internet say several Xbox exclusive games like Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Halo, and Gears Of War will also be making their way to other platforms like the PlayStation 5. There’s been no official confirmation by Microsoft on any of this and even some insiders who’d previously said the rumours were true are starting to change their minds on their credibility.

That being said, there's certainly evidence that Xbox Game Pass might undergo some big changes over the next few months, which almost confirms Xbox games will be ported to multiple platforms.

If you take a look at the official Microsoft pages for Avowed, Fable and Hellblade 2 you’ll likely notice that there’s no mention of Xbox Game Pass anywhere on the page. Instead it just reads “Game Pass” and the part about the platforms simply reads “Consoles, PC, Cloud.”

Obviously take this with a pinch of salt until anything is officially confirmed this week, but it does seem to add further credibility to the idea Xbox is going third-party. If that’s the case we could very well see Xbox Game Pass become Microsoft Game Pass, since it’s unlikely PlayStation or Nintendo would allow Xbox branding on their consoles.

All that’s left to do now is sit and wait for Phil Spencer and the rest of Xbox to make an official announcement. Whatever the decision is, it could make or break the Xbox brand as we know it.
