The biggest Xbox Game Pass bombshell of the year so far has undoubtedly been the addition of Sony's MLB The Show 21 at launch back in April, and Microsoft has confirmed today that the release was a massive success all around.
In a post over at Xbox Wire, it was noted that during launch week, MLB The Show 21 was the "biggest sports game of the past year on Xbox," and the "second biggest sports game of all time on Xbox." Pretty impressive!
In addition, Xbox Game Pass was said to have added "millions of new fans" as a result of the baseball sim being added to the service, while it also "grew Major League Baseball’s player base significantly. "
But perhaps the most interesting bit of news is that despite its Xbox Game Pass addition, MLB The Show 21 was the "#1 selling paid game on Xbox for the month of April," proving that Game Pass titles can still sell in very high numbers.
