There was a lot of discussion late last year when it was rumoured that Ubisoft+ could join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at some point in the future, and those rumours don't appear to be going away anytime soon.
Windows Central's Jez Corden stated the rumour had "a strong chance of being true" at the time, and now GamesBeat's Jeff Grubb (via GamesBeat Decides) has also suggested that Microsoft is "trying to make that happen," and that he thinks the goal is to bring the Ubisoft+ service to Xbox Game Pass, rather than just select Ubisoft games.
"I think it's Ubisoft+, yes. I think it's that part. I'm not for sure, but that's my understanding, is that they're trying to make that happen.
What that looks like, if they're adding another $5 thing into [Xbox Game Pass] Ultimate or if there's going to be tiers to get all these things involved, I honestly don't know - that is me speculating. But, I do think they are trying to figure out a way to bring Ubisoft+ in. I think that'd be a pretty big deal."
For the uninitiated, Ubisoft+ is a subscription service that is currently exclusive to PC, functioning similarly to Xbox Game Pass and EA Play in that it provides access to over 100 games for a single monthly fee.
Obviously it remains to be seen whether this will come to fruition, and how Microsoft would even integrate this service into the console version of Game Pass, but it definitely sounds like something could be happening behind the scenes.
