Xbox Game Pass service reaches a new milestone, making an uncommon announcement regarding its current status and showcasing its growth.

Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service has reached a new milestone, with 34 million active subscribers.

What is Xbox Game Pass?

Xbox Game Pass offers a wide variety of games for a monthly fee, similar to how video-on-demand services like Netflix operate. This service is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and through game streaming on certain phones, tablets, smart TVs, and some VR headsets. With popular titles such as Forza Horizon 5 and Sea of Thieves included, the service’s growing popularity is understandable.

The news follows Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, hinting at more Activision Blizzard titles coming to Xbox Game Pass. Although initially announced that Diablo 4 would be available to all subscribers, Xbox later clarified that it would not be part of the “Core” catalog tier at launch.

This update on subscriber numbers comes as Xbox plans to bring some of its previously exclusive titles to rival platforms like Nintendo and PlayStation. As the gaming landscape continues to evolve, Xbox Game Pass’s expansion and the addition of major titles like Diablo 4 illustrate Microsoft’s commitment to increasing the accessibility and variety of its gaming offerings.
