Microsoft has changed the name of the PC version of Xbox Game Pass to... PC Game Pass.
The change was announced last week during The Game Awards in a comedy sketchy, with the Big M clarifying in a post on Twitter that this was literally a change in branding and nothing else. Oh, and it had also changed the profile picture of its @XboxGamePassPC account. Huge stuff.
This follows the #GamePassHasPCGames hashtag appearing on social media, including Twitter, which seems to point to consumers not being aware that its Xbox Game Pass subscription service can be accessed from PCs.
Xbox Game Pass was initially revealed back in 2015 for consoles ahead of a PC edition being announced at E3 2019. This was rolled out in beta in August of that year.
Between its inception and January 2021, Game Pass has attracted 18 million users. In October of this year, it was reported that the service had missed its goal for subscribers by around ten per cent.
