Xbox Game Pass for PC is renamed to PC Game Pass only. Microsoft made the announcement at The Game Awards 2021 via a video featuring rappers Little Dicky and GaTa. Previously, Microsoft offered Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. The renamed PC bundle removed the Xbox branding to prevent players from confusing it with an Xbox console bundle. PC Game Pass is also getting a new logo that only features the Xbox symbol.
The reveal and changes were confirmed via a Twitter post by the official PC game pass Account. He reminds that the change does not affect any facet of the subscription service and is only a cosmetic overhaul. Additionally, Microsoft has taken this time to announce future arrivals and upcoming day one releases on the platform. Some of the day one releases include co-op multiplayer shooter Redfall, survival horror game STALKER 2, and the highly anticipated A Plague Tale: Requiem. Microsoft also announced four new titles for the platform, including Sniper Elite 5.
Previously, Microsoft revealed 12 new games added to Xbox Game Pass in December. This featured the highly anticipated Halo Infinite which was released day one on the platform on December 9th. Along with the new arrivals, Microsoft also revealed that seven games will bid farewell to the platform on December 15. However, Microsoft is said to be offering a 20% discount on these games until they are removed from the subscription service.
