As stated on Twitter by the established analyst and insider Daniel Ahmad, the blockbuster shooter Gears 5 would represent the first video game arrived on the Xbox Game Pass catalog to deserve the nickname of “mega-hit” of the subscription service of Microsoft on PC and Xbox One.

In confronting his followers on the impact of Gears 5 on the launch, the analyst knew in the scene as “ZhugeEx” stressed the importance of the availability of the title on Game Pass from the day of marketing and the excellent response from the public and criticism from the masterpiece of The Coalition.

“Gears 5 is the first mega success on Gamepass”, explains Ahmad in fact before investigating the matter and declaring that “thanks to a competitive policy on prices and recent offers, a vast library and access to exclusive Microsoft since the day of launch, the Game Pass registrations are very high. MS hopes in this way that many users will continue to be subscribed to the service also in the future”.

As for the reference to the “mega-hit” and to the comparison with others, excellent titles already available on Game Pass as Forza Horizon 4 , the analyst stated that “for Microsoft, the ultimate goal of this operation is to reduce the barrier entry of its customers to video games on consoles Not everyone is willing to spend 60 dollars on a triple-A game that also requires the purchase of a 400 euro console, with a low-cost subscription that works on both PC and on consoles, and with the promise of launching services like xCloud in the future, Microsoft can reach more players “ .
