Xbox's Promise to Players

In a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast, Xbox executives Phil Spencer, Sarah Bond, and Matt Booty unveiled several exciting updates for the gaming community. One of the most anticipated announcements was the inclusion of Diablo IV, the upcoming title from Activision Blizzard, in the Xbox Game Pass lineup. Starting March 28, Game Pass subscribers on both PC and Xbox consoles will be able to dive into the world of Diablo IV, marking the first Activision Blizzard game to join the service.

But that's not all—2024 is shaping to be an incredible year for Xbox players, with many highly anticipated titles on the horizon. Games like Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Avowed, Ara: History Untold, Towerborne, and more are set to captivate audiences. Additionally, updates for blockbuster franchises like Call of Duty, Minecraft, Forza, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Microsoft Flight Simulator will keep players engaged throughout the year.

To expand its gaming community, Xbox also announced plans to bring four Xbox games to other platforms. These titles, available to Xbox players for at least a year, include hidden gems and live service games that will benefit from welcoming more players. This expansion aims to broaden the reach of these titles, allowing Xbox to invest in future versions of these games or elsewhere in its first-party portfolio.

Despite these expansions, Xbox remains committed to its core values. The company reaffirmed its commitment to game preservation, ensuring that Xbox players can continue to build their digital libraries within the Xbox ecosystem. Features like backwards compatibility, cross-play, cross-save progression, and cloud gaming will continue to enhance the player experience on Xbox consoles.

Looking ahead, Xbox promises to deliver the biggest games in the world, all available on Xbox consoles and coming to Game Pass on day one. With a focus on compatibility, innovation, and community, Xbox is poised to continue shaping the gaming landscape for years. Whether you've been a longtime Xbox fan or just joined the Game Pass community, there's never been a better time to be part of the Xbox family.
