These 50+ Activision Blizzard Games Could Be Heading To Xbox Game Pass

Update (Fri 13th Oct, 2023): It's been nearly two years since we first published this list, and a lot has happened in the meantime! The acquisition of Activision Blizzard is finally now complete, and therefore we should be getting a large batch of ActiBlizz games on Xbox Game Pass in the relatively near future.

That said, Microsoft has already suggested that it'll take some time for these titles to join Xbox Game Pass, and Activision Blizzard has confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Diablo 4 won't be available on the service until at least 2024. It's previously been suggested that brand-new Call of Duty games aren't expected to start joining Xbox Game Pass until 2025 as well.

There's also no guarantee that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will join the lineup, as the IP seemingly still belongs to the developer of the title, FromSoftware. It'll likely depend on whether Microsoft can work out a specific Game Pass deal.

As for everything else? We're not sure just yet, but hopefully some of them will join Xbox Game Pass soon-ish!

Original story (Wed 19th Jan, 2022): Microsoft announced as part of the deal to acquire Activision Blizzard that it would be putting as many games as possible from the company into Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, and that means a lot of potential titles!

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, so we don't know which games will be joining Game Pass and which might not be eligible, and we've still got to wait until fiscal year 2023 (July 2022 to June 2023) before the deal is completed.

Nevertheless, based on the current Activision Blizzard listings on the Xbox Store, we've come up with a list of 50+ games (thanks to Luke Spencer for the help!) that might be heading to Xbox Game Pass over the next year-or-so:

(Note: this list is based on potential Game Pass titles for console, rather than PC)

In addition to these, there are a few games left on the Xbox Store that are no longer available to purchase digitally, most likely because the licenses for these titles expired some time ago. Whether Microsoft will be able to do anything to properly relist these games remains to be seen, but here's what we've found in regards to these anyway (this list only includes games that still have an official page on the modern Xbox Store, and not the old Xbox 360 marketplace.):

Don't forget that Microsoft is planning to launch Activision Blizzard games into Xbox Game Pass in the future as well, so hopefully new titles from franchises such as Call of Duty, Crash Bandicoot, Overwatch, Tony Hawk and more will become day one Xbox Game Pass additions. It's an exciting time to be a Game Pass subscriber!

Which of these do you think we'll see on Xbox Game Pass? Let us know down in the comments below.
