Xbox Says The 'Work Has Begun' To Bring Activision Blizzard Titles To Game Pass

We've all been looking forward to a large slate of Activision Blizzard titles coming to Xbox Game Pass for almost two years now, and even though the deal has officially gone through, it sounds like we might need to wait a little bit longer.

Following today's announcement, the official Xbox Game Pass twitter account had the following to say:

"Today, we can now begin the work of bringing Activision Blizzard King’s iconic and groundbreaking games to Xbox Game Pass. We can’t wait to share more details in the coming months."

Xbox boss Phil Spencer had also followed up with some similar messaging over on Xbox Wire:

"Today we start the work to bring beloved Activision, Blizzard, and King franchises to Game Pass and other platforms. We’ll share more about when you can expect to play in the coming months. We know you’re excited – and we are too."

Based on what we're reading here, it sounds like we won't immediately be able to play anything from Activision Blizzard on Xbox Game Pass, and we do already know that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Diablo 4 won't be coming to the service until at least some point next year - as revealed by ActiBlizz a few days ago.

It's a shame to be waiting around, but there's definitely a lot to look forward to! If you haven't read it yet, we've put together a big guide of over 50 games that could arrive on Xbox Game Pass in the not too distant future...
