New March Games Predictions

As for what games might be coming to the service later in March, it's difficult to say.

It's still possible that older Bethesda games come to the service throughout the month, as we get closer to the acquisition being more impactful.

Elsewhere, the service could see a new Resident Evil title or two be added as the release date of Village gets closer and closer.

As it becomes clearer what we can expect from Xbox Game Pass in March 2021, we'll update you.
