    CoD 2024 on Game Pass: A New Frontier for Xbox Players

      TL;DR: The gaming world is poised for a major shift as Microsoft hints at the next Call of Duty title launching on Xbox Game Pass on day one. Following Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, this move could mark CoD 2024, rumored to be Black Ops Gulf War, as the first in the series to debut on Game Pass, offering it to subscribers at no additional cost. This strategy aims to enhance Game Pass's value while maintaining CoD's availability on PlayStation platforms, as reiterated by Phil Spencer. As Microsoft navigates its future in gaming, this approach could redefine access and distribution for blockbuster titles.

    A New Era for Call of Duty

    The gaming community is abuzz with anticipation for the next installment in the Call of Duty series, expected to be released later this year. Amidst the excitement, recent developments suggest a significant shift in how the game will be accessible to players. Following Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, there are strong indications that the upcoming Call of Duty title, rumored to be named Black Ops Gulf War, may debut on Xbox Game Pass on its launch day.

    Microsoft's Strategic Move

    In a recent Xbox podcast, key figures from Microsoft, including Phil Spencer, Sarah Bond, and Matt Booty, discussed future plans for their gaming platform. Subsequent posts on the official Xbox X account hinted at a groundbreaking approach for the forthcoming Call of Duty game. A particular post emphasized that Game Pass would remain exclusive to Xbox platforms and include all first-party games from day one. This development positions Call of Duty alongside Microsoft's flagship titles such as Halo, Gears of War, and Forza, offering it to Game Pass subscribers without additional purchase.


    Implications for PlayStation and Game Pass Expansion

    This potential move to include CoD 2024 in Game Pass from day one does not imply any changes to its availability on PlayStation consoles. Phil Spencer has reiterated Microsoft's commitment to ensuring Call of Duty remains accessible to PlayStation users simultaneously with other platforms. This strategy underscores Microsoft's broader vision to expand Game Pass's appeal by incorporating high-profile Activision Blizzard titles like Diablo 4, further enhancing the service's value for subscribers.
