Xbox Game Pass andGame Pass Ultimate subscribers everywhere and the console are upset with a new sudden change in the subscription service. The change is fairly minor and there’s no indication it’s permanent, but it has drawn the ire of some subscribers who, since the launch of the subscription service, have had little to complain about. What is the problem? Well, Xbox has stopped communicating about new games. There have been a couple of games added so far this year, but they’ve been stealth releases. Xbox usually makes a announcement every two weeks, revealing new games coming to the subscription service that month each time. For the last few weeks, this has stopped. Many assume this is due to the holiday season, but while this is a reasonable conclusion, it’s not a definitive official conclusion.
The complaints and criticisms have become so frequent that the mods of theThey have started deleting posts about the situation. According to most of these posts, the problem is not a lack of new games, but a lack of communication.
“Personally, I don’t mind game crashes because I have a lot to play with, but when a service has worked the exact same way since its inception and it starts to change that out of the blue, without communication, I think people have a right to be cautious,” says a Reddit user about the situation. “These are two lost drops now, for the first time since its inception. There are still so many games leaving the service, but not as many being added right now. So I think it’s only fair that people get upset when you’re paying for it.” .
“I agree with the majority here, it’s not necessarily the fact that no games came out for the last two weeks of December,” adds another Redditor. “It’s more annoying that there has been no communication, it’s a staple of Game Pass that there are two announcements every month, and for them to suddenly stop, of course, people are going to ask questions.”
Again, it’s quite possible that this change is purely a product of the holiday season. However, if this is the case, it has not been communicated. Xbox hasn’t said anything on the matter beyond this, joking. If this changes, we’ll be sure to update the story accordingly. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment letting us know what you think.
