Call of Duty is one of the largest video game franchises in the world, and this year’s entry will be Black Ops 6. While we have to wait until June 9 to get all the details on the upcoming title, Xbox announced that it will be heading to Game Pass on day one. That’s right, the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise will be available to all Game Pass subscribers on launch day. Although it may not come as a huge surprise and is arguably one of the main reasons why Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard, the move is interesting because former Activision CEO Bobby Kotick specifically said he would never put Call of Duty on a subscription service, believing it wouldn’t be good for the business.

Microsoft clearly has different plans, as much of the growth in the Xbox brand ties into Game Pass for the foreseeable future. It will be interesting to see if adding Call of Duty as a day one title has the impact on Game Pass to offset the loss in unit sales.
