Call of Duty, Diablo, Overwatch and others on the Xbox Game Pass? It’s official it will be fine but there is only one condition and the most logical of all.
The acquisition of Activision-Blizzard by Microsoft still has many obstacles to overcome before being approved. Even if things are progressing, the British competition authority is still cautious on the issue. The Redmond firm then insisted on recalling its commitments in a blog post, confirming at the same time that Diablo, Call of Duty and the other studio licenses would arrive on the Xbox Game Pass.
Call of Duty and Diablo on Xbox Game Pass
Microsoft ends speculation. Yes, Call of Duty, Overwatch, Diablo and other strong licenses from Activision-Blizzard studios will arrive on Xbox Game Pass. In this new release, Phil Spencer makes things official for the first time and more crystal clear. This does not mean the end of cross-platform releases, however. Responding to Sony’s concerns, the boss of Xbox recalls in black and white that Call of Duty games will be released on PlayStation at the same time as on other consoles.
We intend to make Activision-Blizzard’s popular toy library available on Game Pass, including Overwatch, Diablo and Call of Duty, and grow these gaming communities. We hope to continue to grow Game Pass by providing even more value to players and extending its appeal to mobile phones and all connected devices.
The Xbox Game Pass could welcome new heavyweights soon, but only if the takeover is approved. If this historic acquisition has already been approved by the shareholders and by Saudi Arabia, other regulators have yet to decide, in particular the British authorities.
