The gaming community debated a lot about when Activision Blizzard’s latest games would be added to Xbox Game Pass, such as the new Call of Duty and Diablo 4. Now, it seems that there is finally a deadline for this to start happening: sometime in 2024.
The news was revealed in a publication made by the company itself on its profile on X (the old Twitter), where there is also a mention that This won’t happen at the beginning of the year. Another point is that titles will be added graduallygiving the chance to maintain a good release schedule based on the company’s franchises.
It’s awesome to see anticipation building for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III. As we continue to work toward regulatory approval of the Microsoft deal, we’ve been getting some questions whether our upcoming and recently launched games will be available via Game Pass.

“It’s incredible to see the anticipation building for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. As we continue to work on regulatory approval of our agreement with Microsoft, we are receiving questions about whether our upcoming and recently released games will be available via Game Pass,” Activison Blizzard began.
“Although we have no plans to put Modern Warfare III or Diablo IV on Game Pass this year, once the deal is sealed, we hope to begin working with Xbox to bring our titles to more players around the world. And we anticipate that we will begin adding games to Game Pass at some point in the next year,” concluded the company.
Diablo IV e CoD: Modern Warfare 3?
For those who are already wondering when to start playing Diablo IV e Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3it’s best not to expect these titles for too soon.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare will not be released directly on Xbox Game Pass.
Activision Blizzard itself had already announced that Diablo IV would not arrive on Xbox Game Pass anytime soon, and the same can be said about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. In fact, the new title in the war series has another impediment, as it It is also part of the list of games that have an exclusive content agreement on Sony consoles.
Finally, Microsoft is interested in trying to finalize the purchase of Activision Blizzard by next Friday (13). The company will possibly be prepared to talk a little more about plans for Xbox Game Pass once the entire process is completed.
While the new Call of Duty and Diablo 4 won’t be on Game Pass in 2023, there’s still a chance other older games will appear on the subscription later this year. However, we will have to wait until the deal is closed for more news.
