During an advertisement for Xbox Game Pass for PC, Microsoft revealed it’s changing the name of their PC gaming service. While the logo remains, the word Xbox will be removed from their marketing. From now on the service is called PC Game Pass.
We heard a rumor that we’re changing our logo and name. the rumor is true
In the advertisement featuring Lil Dicky and GaTa some new titles were also revealed to come to the service on the day of release. These games include Sniper Elite 5, Pigeon Simulator, Trek to Yomi and a yet to be announced title from Hugecalf Studios.
Might as well list them out now that they're unredacted. Will be coming on day one (now with proper spelling!) ⌨️ Sniper Elite 5 🖱️ Pigeon Simulator ⌨️ Trek to Yomi 🖱️ Unannounced game coming from Hugecalf Studios
But all the PC master race guys told me people would be confused with the Series S and Series X names.
In all seriousness though, I don’t think the name is the reason why PC game pass hasn’t seen much growth. Maybe fixing the Microsoft store to be as efficient and easy to use like Steam might go a longer way then changing the name.
