An example of this is what’s going to happen with Halo: Infinite. Halo: Infinite, on the day of launch, will arrive on the Xbox Game Pass.

The game is distributed by juggernaut distributor Sega. Considering that Sega and Microsoft recently announced a ‘strategic alliance’, the claim that more such games should be expected in the Pass possesses considerable merit to a certain extent.

However, it is important to know that as of now, nothing is confirmed or set in stone. Players and fans will have to wait for an official announcement from either entity.
