The question is, when?
The confirmation comes by way of a tweet from Xbox itself. With the caption of “Just say when,” a number of titles are represented by fast-food take out bags. In addition to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Super Lucky’s Tale, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 are also shown.
Super Lucky’s Tale, Rise of the Tomb Raider (March 2018) and Sea of Thieves (April 2018) are already part of the subscription program and Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 will be added to the program on the day they launch. The only title up in the air is Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Taking to a Halo Waypoint update last month, developer 343 wouldn’t commit to a date of availability.
“Right now we’re focused squarely on delivering an awesome game update and decisions on when/where/how MCC is released and made available to players will be made by other groups at Microsoft,” the developer wrote in a reply to a question asking of Xbox Game Pass availability.
“We have nothing to announce today but it’s something we’re definitely thinking about.”
We’ll keep you informed as we learn more.
