Okay, so, the big Activision Blizzard deal is officially happening - and we're already starting to get giddy about the future of Xbox Game Pass with them on board. Sure, we know that some of the team's newer titles like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Diablo 4 won't be entering the library anytime soon, but older games in their respective franchises could well be on the way imminently.
And so, we've been thinking about all of the big ActiBlizz IP that's been missing from Game Pass for all these years, and which of them we're most excited to play in the near future. We're being realistic (for now) and thinking about franchises on Xbox with relatively recent entries - and even from that perspective there's plenty to get excited about.
Of course, the obvious answer is Call of Duty. There are so many Xbox releases here - and even the old Xbox 360 titles are pretty much all backwards compatible so there's plenty to pull from. A thriving Game Pass community hopping onto the original Modern Warfare, World at War, or Black Ops? We're going to have a field day revisiting these old classics!
Diablo has been mentioned here too, and again, while we won't be getting the latest release anytime soon - what about Diablo 2: Resurrected and Diablo 3? The pair of them could be great introductions to the series before Xbox & Blizzard figure out bringing Diablo 4 over; potentially sometime in 2024.
