After signing a new deal with Sony to host their PlayStation Now gaming service, which no one saw coming, Microsoft has revealed their popular Xbox Game Pass service is coming to PC. Not only that, but Microsoft’s PC games lineup will also be available on Steam. Of course, this is all part of Microsoft’s new multi-platform strategy. While the debate is still out about when xCloud will be ready, Game Pass is a great way for Microsoft to get their games downloadable on other platforms in the mean-time.
It is heavily expected by industry insiders that Game Pass and / or more Microsoft titles will be announced for Nintendo Switch at E3 2019. Greg Miller of Kinda Funny Games has even predicted Battletoads could be shown at Nintendo’s E3 2019 Press Conference by an on-stage Phil Spencer (which Microsoft owns due to their acquisition of Rare).
