The Call of Duty franchise has become a staple of first-person shooter gaming in recent years, especially in the console space. Activision Blizzard’s last two iterations, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops, have each well-exceeded $1 billion in global sales, eclipsing most Hollywood movies and other forms of entertainment. Black Ops was even the most-played Xbox Live game of 2010. In fact, the game has been so popular that the CEO of Activision said playing Black Ops rivals activities like Facebook and texting.

Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 be on Xbox Game Pass?

Activision Blizzard, which is now owned by Microsoft, has just confirmed that the next Call of Duty game is titled Call of Duty: Black Ops 6. There's been one major point of contention ahead of this year's Call of Duty: Will it be on Xbox Game Pass at launch? A new report from The Wall Street Journal suggests that is the case.

Historically, Microsoft has added all its first-party games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda to Game Pass the day they launched. That applies to big AAA releases like Starfield, as well as more experimental titles like 2022's Pentiment and Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, which came out this week. Microsoft's public messaging thus far has teased that Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will come to the Xbox Game Pass. That said, Microsoft has not officially confirmed it, so there have been conflicting reports on this actually being the case.
