What if World of Warcraft comes to Xbox Game Pass?

World of Warcraft had a few difficult years. But with Microsoft’s recent announcement that it plans to acquire Activision Blizzard, everything might be looking for the giant, old MMO. If Microsoft gets married World of Warcraft it’s growing Game Pass Service, which currently has 25 million subscribers, we could see a steady stream of new and retired players – something Blizzard Entertainment desperately needs right now.

World of Warcraftprevious expansion of 2018 Battle for Azeroth, which frustrates players with restrictive mechanics that limit what they can do during the game’s most important activities. And with 2020 Shadowlands, the game’s current expansion, Blizzard has duplicated the same mechanics.

In 2021, as well as Sexual harassment and gender discrimination lawsuits hit Blizzard, players began to abandon the MMO near the age of 18 at a steady rate. Major streamers, like Preach, indicating that they have retired from the game. Likewise, Asmongold and great guild leaders like Limit Maximum start streaming OH‘s biggest competitor, Final Fantasy 14 Online.

Blizzard responded to the exodus quickly, pulling some players back by removing restrictions on some Shadowlands‘more controversy Features, characteristics. With the final patch of the expansion Coming soon and a new expansion announcement comes out, players seem very excited about what 2022 and beyond could be. World of Warcraft. But the damage was done. Next time World of Warcraft hit a tricky spot, it probably won’t take long for the player to get wise and move on to something else.

Game Pass could be an answer to World of Warcraftretention problems. MMOs are expensive – not only to develop but also to play. In both World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy 14, players need to maintain a monthly subscription and purchase expansions if they want to continue adventuring with their friends. If Microsoft added World of Warcraft With a huge Game Pass game library and removing both of those cost barriers, this would be a huge step forward for one of the oldest games out there – and maybe even an opportunity to World of Warcraft to retake the MMO throne.

Of course, money is not the only reason why players fall into this situation World of Warcraft – the game also needs to have good content. But World of Warcraft recovered from previous rough patches. Just as players have been waiting for years and many expansions for Legion’s high score, another good expansion is sure to come. And if World of Warcraft just sitting there on your PC Game Pass library – or maybe even a console, if Xbox decides to compete with Final Fantasy 14PlayStation console exclusivity – the next great expansion may be its most popular expansion yet.

With a variety of microtransactions and character boosts, World of Warcraft will never be “free.” But giving players a chance to play their favorite MMO – possibly the one they haven’t touched since the old days The Rage of the Lich King – without paying more than the Game Pass subscription they already have? That could be the best thing to happen to World of Warcraft in a long time.
