Black Ops 6 Seemingly Won’t Launch on Xbox Game Pass Core

5
Microsoft and Activision finally confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, Treyarch’s next big title in the franchise, is coming to Game Pass on day one. It’s a monumental shift, potentially fueling a hike in Game Pass prices. However, a tweet by Summer Game Fest and The Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley suggests that not all Game Pass tiers are equal.

Microsoft confirmed to Keighley that Black Ops 6 would be available for Game Pass for Console, PC Game Pass, and Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass Core isn’t mentioned, so while it isn’t impossible that the title launches for the tier (especially since Keighley mentions its pricing in the next tweet), it may be unlikely. After all, Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo 4 skipped Core when it launched for Game Pass on March 28th.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is without an official release window, but it’s rumored for late October. It will likely arrive for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC, though PS4 and Xbox One versions are also allegedly in-bound. A dedicated Direct on June 9th after the Xbox Games Showcase will reveal more details, so stay tuned.

Mario350 not a surprise anyway to make money from the 5m people who still play on xbox,
gamers are tired of subscriptions on all platforms and console gamers are tired of subscriptions ontop of what they already paid for,
just like ps plus you dont get everything with the basic plan, only the most expensive plan gets everything,
so like i said its all to make money,

and since alot of people dont trust microsoft anymore and its been proven and confirmed that developers dont make money from free games that are part of a subscription, this is where microsoft lays off activision and cod will cease to exist because of poor sales numbers on xbox, why buy a game when its free.


I'd love to bet there's another motive, like a season pass bundle for buyers of the game.

Understandable, it's a pretty decent price as it is for ultimate.
