Microsoft explains why they changed the name of Xbox Game Pass PC
Jason Beaumont explains in the interview, that internally from the beginning, they have always called the service for computer gamers as PC Game Pass, and not Xbox Game Pass PC, which has led to confusion for many users. Obviously there are more savvy people and fewer, since Beaumont confirmed that many players believed that they needed an Xbox to subscribe to Game Pass, since they did not differentiate both services.
It is the same catalog of games. It’s always a sign when everyone says something internally with a name, but then externally, you’re calling it with a different name (laughing). Finally, someone said, ‘Why don’t we call it that?
We had this user confusion, so it was like, let’s just change the name. Let’s keep it simple. PC Game Pass is.
