Head of Xbox Wants to Bring Game Pass to Other Platforms

by Bill Hess


Game Pass launched earlier today for the Xbox One for all owners.  The subscription service offers a Netflix-like experience where subscribers have access to a library of games that they can download to their Xbox One and play on demand.

The reception has been positive so far, as Microsoft has opted for downloading instead of streaming, but apparently Microsoft may have plans to roll out Game Pass to even more players on new platforms.

More specifically, Phil Spencer says that he wants to see Game Pass on PC.   “I really want to see us bring GP (Game Pass) to PC, just need to get the right games in place.”

Looking down the current Game Pass list, there seems to be many titles in the current library that would work on PC.  Though a lot of the first party games included in Game Pass didn’t originally release there are likely some of the biggest drivers for new subscribers.

The Game Pass currently holds titles like Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3, Sunset Overdrive, and other titles that were previously Xbox console exclusives as big draws to the service.

As the catalog of Xbox Play Anywhere games broadens, perhaps Spencer will be able to see this idea through.
