As part of today's official Xbox podcast on the future of the platform, Microsoft has confirmed the very first Activision Blizzard game that's coming to the Game Pass library. On March 28th, Blizzard's Diablo 4 will be available on the service across Xbox and PC.

The team announced this first ActiBlizz arrival as part of a general commitment towards Xbox Game Pass. Activision Blizzard games are coming to the service, despite all of the rumours and speculation about the viability of Xbox's current strategy ahead of today's event.
