Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick seemingly let it slip in an interview that Xbox Game Pass has over 30 million subscribers to date.
In a new interview with Xbox’s Phil Spencer and Take-Two’s Strauss Zelnick, it may have slipped that Xbox Game Pass has a whopping 30 million subscribers. Xbox Game Pass launched a little more than four years ago and has quickly become one of the most influential services in the gaming industry. Not only are there hundreds of games available to players at a low cost, but developers have seen big spikes in their titles after adding them to the service. It seems to be beneficial to a lot of parties, giving Xbox something to boast about.
Earlier this year, it was reported by Windows Central’s Jez Cordon that Xbox Game Pass had 23 million subscribers. This was after Xbox had added some of its biggest third-party games day and date to the service via MLB The Show 21 and Outriders. It has since been reported that Microsoft plans to replace Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass when the latter service hits a sustainable number of subscribers. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb estimates this could be around 40 – 50 million subscribers and it sounds like Xbox isn’t too far away from those numbers.
