It was reported around this time back in August by industry insider Jeff Grubb that Microsoft was planning to reveal "another big reason to get [Xbox] Game Pass" in the near future, and industry analyst Daniel Ahmad has now confirmed there's an announcement planned for this month.
In response to the Xbox Series S leaks earlier today that led to Microsoft officially revealing the system ahead of schedule, Ahmad suggested the Game Pass news was set to be part of an upcoming event:
"Xbox does have an event planned for this month where it was going to reveal pretty much everything that has seemingly leaked above.
There is also going to be a new addition to its Xbox Game Pass service to increase the overall value for new and current subscribers."
When questioned about this further, Ahmad confirmed the "new addition" is a feature rather than a game (or set of games), but stopped short of providing any real details about what to expect.
