  • Microsoft just made another important change to one of its big subscription services.
  • But don't worry because we're not talking about a price change, only a name rebrand.
  • The popular Xbox Game Pass for PCs will be known as the PC Game Pass from now on.
  • This big announcement was made during this year's edition of the Game Awards.

We hope you all had fun watching The Game Awards and that some of your favorite titles actually won the prizes you expected them to.

But, alongside all the award ceremonies, new game announcements, and gameplay reveals at The Game Awards 2021 presentation, we also witnessed Microsoft make a surprising announcement.

The Redmond company is therefore renaming its Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription service to PC Game Pass.

Say hello to the PC Game Pass

Although this is a simple change, it also came with an almost three-minute-long trailer at the awards show featuring rapper Lil Dicky and GaTa, as well as patch notes.

These recent actions could help cause a bit less confusion on the variants too, which now go as Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

This big announcement was also made public by the Game Pass team over Twitter, where they posted a funny little video that explains the change.

We’re sure that it won’t be long until everyone actually gets used to this new name and things will just carry on as usual.

Many would argue that this change was long overdue and that Microsoft was wrong to wait all this time, but what matters is that it happened.
