Xbox Builds Hype As Activision Games Added To 'Game Pass Deals'

We know for a fact that Xbox will be bringing Activision games to Xbox Game Pass when the acquisition of the company goes through - at some point prior to June 2023 - but we're all hoping it might happen a lot sooner than that.

Interestingly, Xbox fans have spotted that certain Activision games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Diablo 2 Resurrected are currently being listed under "Xbox Game Pass Deals", as you can see below:

Before you get your hopes though, there are a couple of signs that suggest this might just be an error. Firstly, none of the aforementioned games are on sale (despite being listed as "deals"), and the listings also include other non-Game Pass titles like Resident Evil Village, which was recently confirmed not to be coming to the service.

It's anyone's guess, but we're leaning on the side of this probably not being an indication of anything. That said, we're still hoping the Activision games arrive on Game Pass before the end of the year, and it seems a possibility.

What do you make of this? Think it's a sign? Let us know down in the comments below.
