Will Xbox Game Pass be on PlayStation?

Microsoft just acquired Activision Blizzard for nearly 70 billion dollars. Not even a year ago Microsoft also acquired Bethesda. With all that in mind, that creates a question: What will Sony do?

There are several ways this can go, but it is certain that Sony or PlayStation to be specific, needs to react in some way. The obvious choice is just introducing a subscription-like Xbox Game Pass, but I think there could be more to it.

Microsoft acquiring Activision Blizzard could mean that some of the biggest series, that were at the top of the PlayStation monthly revenue like Call of Duty are going to be Microsoft exclusive titles. There is no certainty to that, and it is all purely speculation at this point, but this very well could be the future for the Call of Duty franchise. Being exclusive on Windows and Xbox consoles could mean that PlayStation will be forced to take some actions.

Xbox Game Pass on PlayStation?

One way of solving that possible issue is an agreement between Microsoft and Sony to introduce Xbox Game Pass to PlayStation consoles. It is hard to say who will benefit the most from that, but it is for sure that if all the beloved series from Activision Blizzard like Call of Duty or Diablo become Microsoft exclusive products, Sony will lose a huge part of the gaming industry.

With crossplay becoming more and more popular it’s only fair to want the most accessibility possible. Everyone should be able to play games and series they love no matter the platform. Sony is releasing some of the previously PS4 exclusive games on PC which is a step in the right direction.

In the end, it is too early to say if Xbox Game Pass will be on PlayStation, but it is a real possibility considering all the acquisitions Microsoft conducted in recent times.
