It was mentioned back in January when Microsoft announced the intention to acquire Activision Blizzard that lots of games from the company would be coming to Xbox Game Pass ASAP, and that's still very much the plan.
Speaking recently (as highlighted by IGN), Xbox Corporate Vice President Sarah Bond reiterated the desire to bring "as many titles as possible" to Xbox Game Pass when the deal eventually goes through:
"We want to put as many titles as possible from Activision Blizzard into Game Pass when they join us."
The barrier to this right now is that the deal has not yet completed, with the acquisition expected to conclude somewhere between July 2022 and June 2023, so we could be waiting quite a while yet.
When it does finally happen, we're going to (hopefully) be treated to some amazing franchises that have never appeared on Game Pass, such as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Tony Hawk, Call of Duty, Diablo and many, many others!
