Activision games are about to invade Game Pass

As if Game Pass wasn't enticing enough as it is, the catalog prized by gamers is finally getting ready to receive major Activision Blizzard licenses. Since the studio's acquisition by Microsoft last year, only Diablo IV has managed to force its way into the subscription formula. After shaking up the video game industry for months, the historic transaction will finally have the positive impact that the Redmond firm promised. While waiting for the inclusion of Call of Duty Black Ops 6 On October 24, subscribers will be able to enjoy some classics reworked by Activision.

At least that's what a new report from Windows Centralwhich states that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be coming to the service next month. The information initially shared by a leaker named eXtas1s has been confirmed by various sources on the specialist site. The original source also claims that Spyro Reignited Trilogy And Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 should follow the marchbut this part could not be verified by Windows Central. We will just have to wait until next month to judge the veracity of the leaker's statements. The fact remains that this direction seems obvious to say the least, as Xbox would have much to gain by strengthening the popularity of its subscription.

What other games can we expect?

These additions suggest that Microsoft is looking to honor Activision Blizzard's legacy through Game Pass. Between nostalgia and accessibility, players will be able to discover or rediscover titles that have marked the video game industry. With the arrival of a first Call of Duty in the catalog in a few months, It is not impossible to imagine a collection of past titles in order to relive the great moments of the franchise. In addition to the games released on Xbox One and Series, the Redmond firm could also use backwards compatibility to offer access to cult titles such as Modern Warfare 3 And Black Ops first of the name.

On the Blizzard franchise side, only Diablo III has a console version that is potentially eligible for inclusion in Game Pass. With its free-to-play status, Overwatch 2 is obviously not affected but already benefits from some in-game bonuses such as skins. If the console port collection is not as vast as at Activision, players can however hope to find the extensions of Diablo IV in the catalog. It remains to be seen whether Blizzard is ready to take the gamble of a day one inclusion, or whether we will have to wait before being able to discover Vessel of Hatred at no extra cost.
