Control Coming To Xbox Game Pass Next Month

Xbox Game Pass has become a key part of the Xbox ecosystem, offering hundreds of games to play each month.

Right now there are around 350 games available on the service.

Control On Xbox Game Pass

It was revealed today that Control will be making its way to the service in December.

In a post by the Xbox Game Pass Twitter page they revealed a cryptic email which leaks the information.

They did this in the past, with games such as Doom Eternal, where a clue is hidden somewhere in it for players to find.

In the Doom Eternal email if it was inverted it would reveal the information.

However, if you invert it this time you get quite an amusing message that reads "You really think we'd put the tease here again?".

Instead, the clue is hiding in plain sight in the text of the email.

In the email it references a sinister red light, a subtle reference to Control.

REDACTED: They redacted the name of the game, but left another clue hidden in the email.

Now that players have figured it out the game will be officially revealed within the next few days.

Xbox Game Pass games are added throughout the month, usually once per week, so there is no confirmed date for the game being added yet.

Along with the launch of the Xbox Series X|S, on November 10th EA Play was added to Game Pass Ultimate.

Is More Xbox Series X Stock On The Way?

Phil Spencer, the Head Of Xbox, has stated that it is unlikely that players will be able to purchase a new Xbox before the end of 2020, if they weren't able to secure a pre-order in September.

Speaking to the Dropped Frames podcast, Phil Spencer confirmed that stock shortages will last "for a few months".

"We know what our supply will look like basically for the rest of the year. We're going to have more demand than we do supply."
"And I will apologize in advance to people for that. We saw it with pre-orders, how much energy there was, and we were basically out of stock in a couple of hours, which is unfortunate. I think we are going to live in that world for a few months. We're going to have a lot more demand than we do supply."

This is very similar to what Sony Interactive Entertainment's CEO Jim Ryan recently said.

"The demand has been very considerable. Not everybody who wants a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one".
