Diablo General Manager Rod Fergusson on his microblog commented Questions from fans about adding the fantasy action roleplaying game Diablo IV to Game Pass.
Recall that in September 2022 Microsoft stressed that Blizzard, after acquiring Activision, intends to make its library of games, including Diablo, available in the catalog of its subscription service.
However, the deal hasn’t gone through yet, so no one is obliging the developers to add Diablo IV to the Game Pass. According to Fergusson, Blizzard Entertainment currently has no such plans.
It’s easy to see why Activision Blizzard is in no rush to add Diablo IV to Game Pass: the company believes adding game subscription services is possible on any platform “Seriously Injured” Sales, especially for recent releases.
Diablo IV will be released on June 6th on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. Already this month there will be an open “beta” on the same platforms – from March 17th to March 20th for pre- Orders (and not only) and from March 24, 27 for everyone else.
