As we said, the inclusion of EA Play into the Game Pass would mean a huge boost to the current lineup of titles on the Pass. The Game Pass team had this to say in the announcement.

“We established this partnership with Electronic Arts because they are as passionate as we are about helping people and communities discover great games, and we knew we could provide a great experience for members by working together. In order to deliver on that, we need more time to provide the Xbox Game Pass experience.”

We all know that this year has been quite challenging for every industry out there. We have seen publishers delay games in order to deliver a perfect, finished product. Well, it is the same as the Game Pass situation right now.
