Microsoft seems to be continuing to concentrate its efforts on making the Xbox Game Pass service library as attractive as possible for its users and they want to add Ubisoft Plus to the service. The platform celebrated 18 million members earlier this year, but the company has plans to keep growing.
Microsoft appears to be in talks with Ubisoft to add Ubisoft Plus content to its catalog, which is currently available on PC for $14.99. This intention does not sound crazy, especially after EA Play was recently integrated with Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass could open the door to Ubisoft Plus
Jeff Grubb has recently talked about some of Microsoft‘s behind-the-scenes moves in a podcast. In this regard, he claims that the company has been working with Ubisoft to strike a deal to bring Ubisoft Plus to the Xbox Game Pass service. Grubb says he doesn’t know how these talks will ultimately materialize, nor at what point negotiations are at, but he does have knowledge that Microsoft is trying to add that Ubisoft to its service. “I’m not for sure, but that’s my understanding, is that they’re trying to make that happen,” he expressed.
Microsoft wants Ubisoft titles in the Game Pass
“What that looks like, if they’re adding another $5 thing into [Xbox Game Pass] Ultimate or if there’s going to be tiers to get all these things involved, I honestly don’t know – that is me speculating. But, I do think they are trying to figure out a way to bring Ubisoft Plus in. I think that’d be a pretty big deal,” he adds.
As we said, Microsoft has already made a similar move with EA Play, allowing Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to enjoy the benefits of this service without an increase in price. In the case of Ubisoft, we will have to wait to find out if it ends up being integrated as a paid add-on within Microsoft’s service.
