Call of Duty, Diablo, Overwatch planned for Xbox Game Pass

What a value proposition.

Activision Blizzard franchises like Call of Duty, Diablo and Overwatch will head to Xbox Game Pass after Microsoft acquires the publisher, Xbox head Phil Spencer has declared.

“We are expanding choice in two ways: through the creation of Game Pass, which gives players a subscription option; and by bringing more games to mobile platforms, including through our cloud game streaming technology,” Spencer began as part of a larger blog post.

“Subscription services like Game Pass make gaming more affordable and help players from all over the world find their next favorite game,” Spencer continued. “Game Pass empowers developers to bring more games to more players, not fewer.  We intend to make Activision Blizzard’s much-loved library of games – including Overwatch, Diablo and Call of Duty – available in Game Pass and to grow those gaming communities. By delivering even more value to players, we hope to continue growing Game Pass, extending its appeal to mobile phones and any connected device.”

Microsoft plans to finalise its acquisition of the publisher sometime next year.
