After Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard King, fans immediately wondered when Call of Duty Games are coming to Xbox Game Pass.
For a monthly fee, Xbox Game Pass offers subscribers a library full of games, with new titles joining the exclusive service each month. From big releases like Starfield and Forza Motorsport to classic games like Assassin's Creed Origins, Xbox Game Pass provides members with a cost-effective way to try out games in every genre.
Prior to the highly contested merger between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard King, fans were forced to purchase Call of Duty games every year to explore the new releases. Now, the future promises an exciting new way to explore Call of Duty: Xbox Game Pass.
So, when are Call of Duty Games coming to Xbox Game Pass?
Here's When Call of Duty Games Are Likely Coming to Xbox Game Pass
Call of Duty games are likely coming to Xbox Game Pass in 2024. Fans will have to wait months before they can play the franchise on Xbox Game Pass.
When the merger finally went through, the Xbox Game Pass X account posted, "Today, we can now begin the work of bringing Activision Blizzard King's iconic and groundbreaking games to Xbox Game Pass."
Unfortunately, the lengthy acquisition kept Microsoft from starting the process of bringing Call of Duty to Xbox Game Pass until October 2023.
"We anticipate that we would begin adding games into Game Pass sometime in the course of next year," Activision Blizzard confirmed.
Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox Game Pass?
No, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is not on Xbox Game Pass. In theory, the merger came at the perfect time to feature the new title on the subscription service; however, Microsoft is still months away from transferring their new library to Xbox Game Pass.
"It's awesome to see anticipation building for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III," Activision Blizzard posted on X. "While we do not have plans to put Modern Warfare III or Diablo IV into Game Pass this year, once the deal closes, we expect to start working with Xbox to bring our titles to more players around the world."
Although the statement came a few days before the merger officially closed, the statement and timeline remains the same.
