Perhaps after rumors of selling its Xbox business, Microsoft has now announced that it’s expanding PC Game Pass Preview to 40 new countries.
Earlier this week, a post made by VGC editor and owner Andy Robinson on Twitter caught the attention of many game enthusiasts, after stating that he knows “many industry pundits consider sales from MS Xbox a real possibility, if it is blocked (I still hope to go with discounts).
Robinson’s comment was directed at Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, who previously interviewed The Times and said the Activision deal “doesn’t do anything long-term — Xbox will exist if this deal doesn’t happen.”
A few days after this, Microsoft seems to be trying to prove this by announcing that its PC Game Pass preview is going to more Insiders starting February 28th. According to the software giant, this brings the program to 40 new countries: Albania, Algeria, Bahrain, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Georgia, Guatemala, Honduras, Iceland, Kuwait , Latvia, Libya, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Mtenstein, Lithuania, Lithuania, Morocco, Nicaragua, North Macedonia, Oman, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Qatar, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Ukraine and Uruguay.
As expected, people who want to participate in the preview must sign up for the PC Game Pass preview program to access its various features and benefits. Preview participants can expect more as the company plans to release some new titles to the Gaming service in the coming weeks, including Minecraft Legends on April 18 and Redfall on May 2.
