Ubisoft’s game subscription service Ubisoft+ coming to Xbox
Originally launched in September of 2019, Ubisoft’s game subscription service Ubisoft+ has offered the chance for PC, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna owners to play 100-plus games for a $15-a-month subscription fee. Now, the service will finally be making the jump to consoles.
Or, at least, Xbox consoles. Ubisoft today announced that Ubisoft+ “will be coming to Xbox in the future.” While that statement doesn’t specify when it’s coming, or which Xbox consoles, it’s a pretty safe bet that it’ll be available on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
At the same time, Ubisoft announced that Rainbow Six Extraction will be launching day one on Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox and PC—but it’s important to note that Ubisoft+ will not be a part of Xbox Game Pass, at least as of this point. Microsoft previously incorporated EA Play subscriptions into Game Pass Ultimate as one of the perks, but Ubisoft+ is likely to be too costly of a service to do the same for.
However, it’s always possible that Microsoft and Ubisoft could work on a lesser version of the service to add to Game Pass, such as one where newer games aren’t playable without a full Ubisoft+ subscription.
