Microsoft’s Game Pass, a popular subscription service for Xbox games, is rumored to have surpassed 30 million subscribers across all platforms. The information was discovered by tech news site Tweek Town, who spotted a LinkedIn profile belonging to Craig McNary, Xbox’s Senior Marketing Director.
McNary’s profile indicated that Game Pass had over 30 million subscribers. However, the number was later changed to 25 million and then ultimately removed. While this is not an official confirmation from Microsoft, the initial figure seems plausible.
Sony’s attempts to block Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard provided some additional hints about the popularity of Game Pass. Last year, Sony informed Britain’s Competition and Markets Authority that Microsoft’s subscription service had 29 million console and ultimate subscribers, not including PC subscribers. This suggests that the total number of Game Pass subscribers is likely higher than 30 million.
It’s worth noting that Game Pass still falls short of PlayStation Plus, which has approximately 47.4 million subscribers across all versions. However, Xbox Live Gold, which has an estimated 46 million subscribers as of 2020, likely includes Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. As Microsoft recently replaced Xbox Live Gold with Game Pass Core, it is expected that Game Pass will attract even more users.
Overall, Game Pass continues to grow in popularity, with millions of gamers choosing the subscription service for access to a vast library of games. With its expanding user base and ongoing updates, Game Pass is set to remain a competitive force in the gaming industry.
