‘We need more time’
You’ve heard of game delays. Now let me introduce you to subscription service delays.
In terms of sheer bulk, access to the whole EA Play library is a pretty good reason to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That partnership was announced earlier this year. EA was just hitching its wagon to Game Pass Ultimate, making all of its subscription service offerings available to Ultimate subscribers.
It’s already implemented on consoles, but PC is behind schedule for some reason. Today, the two sides needed to announce that EA Play for PC won’t be coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate until sometime in 2021. There’s no word about the cause of the delay apart from “We need more time.”
A lot of EA’s best stuff is on EA Play, and that’s certainly valuable for people who subscribe to Ultimate. The website lists about 60 PC games, with stuff like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the Dead Space games standing out. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on PC will find out all about that next year.
