Microsoft announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one, marking a significant milestone as the first game from the franchise to join the subscription service. Since Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard in mid-October 2023, fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Call of Duty titles on Xbox Game Pass. Despite delays due to regulatory concerns surrounding the acquisition, Microsoft has reaffirmed its commitment to bringing the popular franchise to the service.

The confirmation of Black Ops 6's inclusion in Xbox Game Pass followed leaks and speculation, officially confirmed on May 28 through notifications sent to subscribers. While specific details are limited, Microsoft has promised more information, including a global reveal, scheduled after the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9. There is much speculation about potential changes to Xbox Game Pass tiers to accommodate the addition of Call of Duty. The simultaneous release of Black Ops 6 suggests that future entries from the franchise may also become available on the service, providing subscribers with even more gaming options. The upcoming Xbox Games Showcase may provide further insights into these developments.
