Xbox Game Pass Is Making Billions In Revenue Each Year, Suggests Report

Microsoft typically refrains from providing detailed revenue figures about Xbox Game Pass, but courtesy of a document filed by Brazil's Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) in relation to Microsoft's attempted acquisition of Activision Blizzard, we've been provided with a little extra insight.

As first spotted by TweakTown, the document suggests that Microsoft made $2.9 billion in revenue from Xbox Game Pass in the fiscal period ending January 2021 - and this doesn't even take PC Game Pass into account.

Unfortunately, the report is a bit too vague to give us exact details on everything, such as whether the $2.9 billion figure includes any DLC sales through Game Pass, for example, or perhaps discounted Game Pass game sales. But even so, this at least gives us a rough idea of how much revenue the service is bringing in on a yearly basis.

And considering this report is about the last fiscal year, and Xbox Game Pass has since grown to over 25 million subscribers, you'd have to imagine that the figure of $2.9 billion is now even larger. Sounds pretty impressive to us!

What do you make of this? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below.
