It’s been over a year since Ubisoft+ was announced for Xbox consoles, and fans can be forgiven for thinking the plans may have fallen through. However, it looks like a release for the streaming service on consoles could be coming in the near future. According to reports from Windows Central, more than 60 games on Xbox have been updated with a Ubisoft+ tag, similar to the one for Game Pass games appearing on the Xbox home screen. That probably means there will be some kind of announcement, but when exactly that will happen remains to be seen.
It’s currently unclear exactly how Ubisoft+ will work on console. Currently, the service costs $14.99, which is the same amount as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Recent rumors have suggested that there will be different tiers for the service, but nothing has been officially confirmed by Ubisoft. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers get access to EA Play as part of their subscription, but Ubisoft revealed last year that won’t happen with Ubisoft+; unless something has changed, Xbox users will need to subscribe to Ubisoft+ separately.
If that’s still the case, it’s going to be interesting to see how Ubisoft+ performs on Xbox! Game Pass is an important part of Xbox’s current strategy, and it’s hard to say how many subscribers would want to sign up for any other video game subscription service. With over 60 games confirmed for the service on Xbox, it certainly sounds like Ubisoft+ could appeal to the company’s biggest fans. Whether the service will be able to compete or coexist with Game Pass, however, remains to be seen.
Now that these icons have been updated on the Xbox OS, it looks like it’s only a matter of time before a launch date is revealed for Ubisoft+ on Xbox platforms. Hopefully we’ll have a lot more information in the near future, but for now fans will just have to wait and see!
