Microsoft has confirmed that the recently launched Xbox Game Pass service will score "at least" five new games every month. As part of a recent Xbox Daily broadcast from E3 2017 Xbox senior product manager Dennis Ceccarelli emphasized the company's efforts to provide a "great mix of games," noting that at least five new titles will hit the catalog at the beginning of every month (via Eurogamer).
Xbox Game Pass acts as a sort of Netflix-style experience, but for games instead of movies and TV shows. For $10 per month, players can get access to a buffet of games that they can download and play at any time. Currently, Game Pass is made up of more than 100 titles, including popular entries like Gears of War, Bioshock, and Halo 5.
To further draw on that Netflix comparison, anyone familiar with the streaming service will know that titles eventually leave. Xbox Game Pass is no different, but Ceccarelli confirmed that the first titles won't be leaving until November:
While there's not one set amount of time that a game will be in the catalog, and some titles will leave the catalog eventually, I want to put some fears at rest because our first games won't be leaving the catalog until late November.
Ceccarelli went on to state that the "vast majority" of games on the service will be available for much longer, so there is time to give each the time it deserves. Still, we're hoping Microsoft is keen on providing ample warning before a game is set to leave Game Pass so subscribers have a chance to try anything they may have been putting off.
