Xbox Game Pass has seen unprecedented success in 2023. With first-party titles like Hi-Fi Rush and Starfield, the service offered a total of 50 day-one titles this year.
Microsoft appears to be continuing this momentum in 2024. While the total number of games on the service next year remains to be seen, 40 day-one titles have already been confirmed.
Why it matters: The prices of AAA games could quickly spiral out of control in the future, possibly making the current investments in subscriptions and their growth even more important moving forward.
Already 40 games announced for release on @XboxGamePass in the upcoming year!

The list above has been gathered by Twitter user Baiisun, highlighting the various games headed to the service in 2024.
It includes big first-party names like Hellblade 2 and Avowed. Prominent exclusives like Stalker 2 and Ark 2 are also part of the list, marking a few of the premier Xbox Game Pass titles of 2024.
Other notable titles like Persona 3 Reload are also shaping up to be exciting additions to the subscription.

Over the year, Activision’s catalog should begin showing up on the service. However, next year’s Call of Duty, which is reportedly another Black Ops title, might not be one of the day-one AAA releases for the subscription.
Admittedly, many of the games featured in this list are smaller indie titles. Still, we believe Xbox Game Pass can provide a unique platform for these games, allowing them to shine when least expected.
Overall, the service seems to be headed toward an equally impressive offering when compared to 2023. Unlike the competition, Microsoft’s ability to secure third-party deals for its subscription has positioned Xbox Game Pass in a unique position.
Therefore, fans should expect a diverse and high-quality lineup of games in 2024 that benefits both consumers and developers.
Xbox Game Pass is already home to nearly 30 million subscribers. Combining a compelling lineup with the incoming Activision games in 2024, the next 12 months could be the most important to the future and sustainability of this service.
Microsoft has likely prepared a number of surprises along the way. Last year, a game like Hi-Fi Rush was released without any prior announcement, and it became Xbox’s best-rated game of the year.
Therefore, we would not be shocked to find out a few more surprises like Hi-Fi Rush for Xbox Game Pass in 2024.
