Ubisoft recently announced that it will expand its Ubisoft+ game subscription service to the Xbox platform, but did not give a specific timetable. Currently, the Ubisoft+ game subscription service is available on PC, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna platforms. After subscribing, players can play hundreds of released games at will. Of course, it’s not enough if the player can only play the game itself, so Ubisoft+ also provides players with services such as game follow-up DLC, season passes, etc.
This sounds like the same routine as the current Xbox Game Pass. Perhaps this is why Ubisoft decided to bring Ubisoft+ to Xbox so that both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass players can play Ubisoft+ games. The first game to be added to Xbox Game Pass will be the next new game Rainbow Six Extraction, and it will be released on January 20 and will be available on Xbox Game Pass.
“Rainbow Six Extraction for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members is just the beginning,” said Ubisoft SVP of strategic partnerships and business development Chris Early.
“Ultimately, we will offer the Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox owners so that they can enjoy the full extent of our Ubisoft+ game library, including new releases, on their consoles.”
This time Ubisoft officially announced that a new game will be released on Xbox Game Pass. In fact, it also shows the importance of this cooperation with Microsoft. In any case, Ubisoft’s games can be added to Xbox Game Pass is a good thing for the majority of Xbox players, and this also means that the appeal of Xbox and PC Game Pass will be further enhanced.
