Modern Warfare 3 Will Not Be Available on Game Pass Anytime Soon, Says Activision Blizzard
Call of Duty fans and newcomers alike are eagerly awaiting the release of Modern Warfare 3. With its promise of new zombie-related content, maps, and more, the game has generated a significant amount of excitement. However, following Activision Blizzard and Microsoft’s acquisition deal, fans have been wondering whether MW3 will be available on Game Pass. Activision has finally responded to these queries, but the answer is not as straightforward as fans had hoped.
Regulatory Approval Delays the Release on Game Pass
Despite the potential for Modern Warfare 3 to have one of the biggest releases in the FPS genre in years, it seems that it won’t be available on Game Pass anytime soon. Activision Blizzard’s response states, “As we continue to work toward regulatory approval of the Microsoft deal, we’ve been getting some questions whether our upcoming and recently launched games will be available via Game Pass.”
In a tweet, Activision Blizzard further clarifies, “we do not have plans to put Modern Warfare 3 or Diablo 4 into Game Pass this year.” However, they also express their intention to collaborate with Xbox and bring their titles to more players worldwide once the deal is finalized.
Anticipating Future Inclusion in Game Pass
While there is no specific mention of Modern Warfare 3 in Activision Blizzard’s statement, they do speculate on the possibility of adding games to Game Pass in the future. They state, “we anticipate that we would begin adding games into Game Pass sometime in the course of next year.” This leaves fans hopeful but uncertain about the inclusion of the new Call of Duty game in Game Pass in 2024.
Despite the lack of clarity, Activision Blizzard acknowledges the growing anticipation for Modern Warfare 3 and expresses their excitement about it. In the meantime, fans can look forward to the recent announcement of a Diablo 4 Steam release.
