Ubisoft announced in January that their subscription service would be coming to Xbox. This coincided with the announcement that Rainbow Six Extraction would be available on Game Pass at launch. So we knew Ubisoft+ was headed to the Xbox, but that was it. It is currently available for PC as a single subscription or as part of a multi-subscription with Google Stadia. We’re not sure if the Xbox edition will be included with PC and Stadia subscriptions when it becomes available.
When the news was announced rumours spread that it was going to be included with Game Pass and some said it wouldn’t. However, the official announcement has a statement from Chris Early. They are the Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development for Ubisoft and they said,
Ultimately, we will offer the Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox owners so that they can enjoy the full extent of our Ubisoft+ game library, including new releases, on their consoles.
Ubisoft+ And Game Pass
A rumour was posted on Twitter earlier with a link to a video. According to Ubisoft Netherlands, the subscription service is indeed coming to Game Pass and apparently “soon”.
Dualshockers also reported rumours a few days earlier stating it could come to Game Pass. We also heard previously that if Microsoft did decide they wanted to purchase Ubisoft then they would be willing to consider an offer.
What This Service Offers Game Pass
If we look at what the official announcement says of the service.
Originally launched for PC, the service allows access to more than 100 Ubisoft titles at a single monthly cost, with games and DLC available on launch day, and monthly rewards including cosmetics, boosters, in-game items, and more
So PC gamers got Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and all of its expansions, for example. This includes the most recently released Ragnarok expansion. Future titles will also be available when the service launches. Consider the possibility of a Splinter Cell remake, as well as the upcoming Avatar game. They are also working on a Star Wars project. If Microsoft ever bought Ubisoft, we know they’d have a slew of franchises to choose from as potential exclusives. All of these reports, however, are still rumours and speculation.
