Microsoft confirms Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is coming to Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft today confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, the next installment in the popular franchise, will be available day one on Xbox Game Pass. After a premature notification earlier today, an official Xbox Wire blog post revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will be available on Microsoft’s game subscription service later this year.

“We are excited to confirm that Game Pass members will be able to access Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 from day one with Game Pass,” said Megan Spurr, Xbox Game Pass Senior Community Manager. In a separate Xbox trailer, Microsoft confirms Black Ops 6 will be available on both Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PC Game Pass.

Confirmation of a Game Pass release for the next Call of Duty the payment comes after questions about Call of Dutythe availability of on Xbox Game Pass. I reported earlier this month that Microsoft was considering whether to release new versions of Call of Duty in Game Pass, with concerns from some within the company about the revenue generated from Call of Duty sales would be harmed by Game Pass. Activision traditionally sells more than 20 million copies of Call of Duty on average, at around $70 each.

It’s still unclear whether Microsoft plans to raise prices for its Game Pass Ultimate subscription, and the company hasn’t announced a release date for call of Duty Black Ops 6, there are still many months before its possible release on Game Pass. I understand that Activision is currently targeting a late October release for Black Ops 6which takes place during the Gulf War of the 90s.

Microsoft plans to provide more details on Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 during a special stream after the main Xbox Summer Showcase on June 9. The main Xbox showcase will feature a new Weapons of war announcement, alongside the next Loss game. The showcase will also include a number of release dates for upcoming Xbox games like Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024, DeclaredAnd Indiana Jones and the Great Circle.
