Xbox's 2024 Showcase Was Great, But It Was Missing A Big ActiBlizz Announcement

The Xbox Showcase was amazing this year. Seriously, the relaunch of Pure Xbox took place four years ago, and we can't remember a better summer showcase from Xbox since then. Gears, Fable, Perfect Dark, DOOM... the list goes on and on. But if we're being totally honest, there's one announcement that we're a bit sad we didn't get.

Of course, we're talking about the massive selection of Activision Blizzard games that are expected to hit Xbox Game Pass in the near future. Since the takeover, all we've seen from the company on XGP is Diablo 4, and we also know that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will be launching day one this October. But what about everything else?

Well, all the signs suggest we're on the cusp of an announcement. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 were all added to the Xbox PC store recently, which usually happens when a Game Pass release is being prepared. Basically, it looks like Microsoft is slowly adding all of these games to PC ahead of a huge Xbox Game Pass drop at some point in the near future.

But when it's going to be and what exactly will it include? That's still anybody's guess. We're willing to bet it won't be very long, and here's hoping it could even be this month. Xbox Game Pass is already fantastic value for money in its current state, and once these games are on there as well, we can't see ourselves ever unsubscribing!
