For me March/April have been the best Game Pass months in history. Not only because personally I have been really enjoying Outriders from day one, but particularly for what this month means for the future of the service. Knowing that huge AAA titles in the future will launch into the service from day one is a game-changer, and completely switches the perspective on the service. Before we were sure to get all Microsoft first-party games day one with the service, along with the ocasional AA and indie game as well. Now we at least know some AAA third-party games can and will end up in the service day one. It’s open season now, the floodgates are open and the imagination runs wild.
Which ones will end up day one on the service, in your opinion? And which ones are your personal wish?
Looking in the short-term, Hood: Outlaws and Legends is launching in May and looks to be a multiplayer-only game that is not gathering as much fanfare as it probably wished, and could very well use that Game Pass boost, much like Outriders. Not placing any bets, but in my opinion it’d be a great game to have day one on the service, although if it is indeed an AAA game, that is open to question.
