Microsoft Confirms Call Of Duty: Black Ops 6 Coming to Game Pass on Day 1

Microsoft has made a significant announcement, revealing that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will be available on Game Pass from day one of its release, expected later this year.

According to Tom Warren, a journalist from The Verge, users of the Xbox Game Pass mobile application received a push notification indicating that Black Ops 6 would be available on Game Pass upon its release.

Clicking on the link directed users to an Xbox Wire page that, although non-existent at the time, had a URL mentioning the possibility of playing the title on the service from day one.

This oversight suggests that the notification was sent prematurely, ahead of any official announcement from Xbox.

However, the likelihood of Black Ops 6 arriving on Game Pass from day one is strong, especially considering that a report earlier this month hinted at Xbox making a Call of Duty-related announcement on the service during the upcoming Summer Game Fest in June.


Speculations and Potential Release

While there is no official date, some speculate that it could be as soon as today, May 28th, as Xbox typically makes its announcements around 7 am PT/10 am ET/3 pm BST. It is advised to stay tuned to Xbox’s social media channels and the Xbox Wire page to not miss any official news.

Beyond the potential arrival on Game Pass, it is already confirmed that a Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct will be aired next month, on Sunday, June 9th, immediately following the Xbox Games Showcase 2024. This event will begin at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET / 6 pm BST, with the Black Ops 6 Direct expected to start two hours later.


With the accidental notification revealing Black Ops 6’s potential inclusion on Game Pass from day one, the gaming community eagerly awaits official confirmation from Xbox. The upcoming Black Ops 6 Direct promises to provide more insight into what fans can expect from this highly anticipated installment in the Call of Duty franchise.
