Not only was it confirmed earlier that 4 Xbox titles will soon be shipped to other platforms, but the rumors also reveal how these will not be the final games that players will have to say goodbye to when it comes down to exclusivity.

However, while it remains uncertain if Call of Duty on the Game Pass will ever see the light of day, it lines up with the studio considering increasing the prices of the said subscription at the same time, which without a doubt will infuriate a lot of players if implemented anytime soon.

Why Microsoft Is Walking On Eggshells Right Now

Shutting down four-game developing studios is no small deal, and as expected, has left fans with mixed emotions on how to feel about the whole ordeal. The release of more Xbox exclusives is sure to weaken the already breaking connection between the company and its player base, which can prove to be fatal if the way is not trodden carefully.
