Game Pass: 40 Day One Releases Already Announced For 2024

Hellblade 2, Stalker 2, Avowed, And More!

Story Highlights
  • Xbox Game Pass released 50 titles on day one this year.
  • While this was impressive, 40 games have already been announced for the subscription in 2024.
  • The list will grow as more games are announced in the coming months.

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.

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.

Game Pass Titles Confirmed For 2024 So Far

The full list from the Twitter user’s graphic includes the following games:

  • Turnip Boy Robs A Bank
  • Go Mecha Ball
  • Persona 3 Reload
  • PlateUp!
  • Open Roads
  • Lightyear Frontier
  • Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl
  • Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes
  • Manor Lords
  • Sopa
  • Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn
  • Dead Static Drive
  • Still Wakes The Deep
  • Little Kitty Big City
  • Harold Halibut
  • Botany Manor
  • Another Crab’s Treasure
  • Nirvana Noir
  • Flock
  • Cities Skylines 2
  • 33 Immortals
  • ARA History Untold
  • Avowed
  • Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem
  • Commandos Origins
  • Dungeons of Hinterberg
  • Ereban: Shadow Legacy
  • Galacticare
  • Ghost Bike
  • Magical Delicacy
  • Citizen Sleeper 2: Starward Vector
  • She Dreams Elsewhere
  • Way to the Woods
  • Ark 2
  • Vapor World
  • Towerborne
  • Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
  • Replaced
  • Pigeon Simulator
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024

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.
