Rumour has it that Ubisoft is coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Rumour has it that Microsoft’s planning to add Ubisoft Plus (Ubisoft ) to their Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service, bringing with it support for all of Ubisoft’s latest titles alongside a variety of the company’s classics. 

Right now, Ubisoft’s Ubisoft Plus service is available on PC for $14.99/£12.99, making the service an expensive add-on for Xbox customers. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $14.99/£10.99, making a direct integration seem unlikely. EA Play has recently been added for free to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass services, adding a tonne of content to Xbox Game Pass (for Xbox) and Xbox Game Pass for PC. 

Within Jeff Rubb’s Gamesbeat podcast, it is speculated that Ubisoft Plus could become a premium add-on for Games Pass, arriving as a Games Pass Ultimate-only feature or as a separate $5 add-on for the service. Ubisoft can reach a lot more players through Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service, and that should counter the service’s reduced subscription cost as part of Xbox Game Pass. 

Below is a relevant excerpt from Jeff Grubb’s podcast;

  

    I think it’s Ubisoft Plus, yes. I think it’s that part. I’m not sure, but that’s my understanding, is that they’re trying to make that happen.

What that looks like, if they’re adding another $5 thing into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or if there’s going to be tiers to get all these things involved, I honestly don’t know – that is me speculating. But, I do think they are trying to figure out a way to bring Ubisoft Plus in. I think that’d be a pretty big deal.

 

Bringing Ubisoft titles to Game Pass would be huge for Microsoft, as it would allow Microsoft to offer content from EA, Bethesda, and Ubisoft within a single subscription. Xbox Game Pass already offers gamers incredible value, and adding Ubisoft Plus into the mix would only make things better.
