Microsoft recently announced 17 new games for the service
December could see even more notable titles being added to Xbox Game Pass, following recent substantial additions.
Yesterday (December 1), 17 new titles were revealed for Xbox Game Pass, including highly regarded titles such as Control and Greedfall. Despite being one of the biggest line-ups for the service so far, it looks as though Microsoft still has more announcements up its sleeve.
As cited by Pure Xbox, a recent tweet from Matt Percy, the general manager of business and content planning for Xbox Game Pass, hints that more titles are on the way. According to Percy, the service is just “just getting warmed up ahead of the holiday season”, suggesting even more titles will be announced over the course of the month.

With The Game Awards around the corner, it seems likely the show could be used to air some new announcements. Microsoft is no stranger to revealing news during the awards show, having unveiled the Xbox Series X for the first time during the 2019 event.
As Xbox Game Pass grows and becomes further value for money, many developers have questioned how the service can be sustainable in a long-term fashion. In a recent interview, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said he believes it to be “completely sustainable” and has no plans to raise the price for the foreseeable future.
Spencer has also previously spoken about how he would be “open” to Xbox Game Pass coming to other systems, including PlayStation– and Nintendo-branded consoles.
However, it appears Sony is planning to introduce their own version of the service, as PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently teased that there is “news to come” in regards to its take on Xbox Game Pass.
