One of Europe’s biggest gaming giant Ubisoft has caught everyone by surprise yesterday on 5 Jan 2022 when they announced that their latest co-op tactical FPS shooter game Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to XBOX Game Pass Subscription service Day one on 20 Jan 2022. Apart from that Ubisoft announced that their own subscription service Ubisoft Plus is also coming to XBOX Platform but it seems that surprises are not just ending right there as later on their official twitter account Ubisoft hinted that we might see more Ubisoft games being added to the Microsoft’s subscription service in near future.
This is what Ubisoft posted on their official twitter hinting at the arrival of more Ubisoft games on XBOX game pass in near future :
We’re bringing Ubisoft+ to Xbox!! Expect more news in the future 👀

Well as Ubisoft has already hinted the addition of more Ubisoft games on XBOX Game Pass by posting expect more news in the future so now everyone is speculating which Ubisoft games we might see on the XBOX Game Pass sooner rather then later and here is the list of top 5 brand new Ubisoft games we are expecting to arrive on Game Pass in near future :
1. Assassins Creed Valhalla:
One of the biggest franchise of Ubisoft is Assassins Creed and the latest addition to this beloved franchise is Assassins Creed Valhalla, the RPG Viking based game which was released back in 2020 and already it has broken all the records of previous Assassins Creed Games as it has become the most profitable game in the franchise till date.
There is a huge possibility that Ubisoft might make the base game available on the XBOX Game Pass service in near future which will be a great thing for fans as they will get to play 100+ hours of RPG content at a very cheap price. Also even Ubisoft might get benefitted from this as the latest expansion of Assassins Creed Valhalla titled Dawn of Rangnarok is releasing in March 2022 so the addition of the base AC Valhalla wiill be a great promotion for their upcoming paid expansion.
2. Watch Dogs Legion:
The third installment in the Ubisoft’s popular hacking based Watch Dogs franchise titled Watch Dogs Legion was a very unque experiment by the company when it comes to the innovation in the gaming but that experiment failed badly and as a result of which WD Legion got very bad reviews as far as critics and users are concerned.
Although many people say that its DLC Expansions were far better then the base game so Ubisoft might take the risk of putting the base game of Watch Dogs Legion on the game pass service so that the people who like it will buy its DLC expansions later on so that Ubisoft can make some profit out of it.
3. Far Cry 6:
Apart from Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed, Far Cry is also one of the biggest franchise of Ubisoft and its latest game titled Far Cry 6 was a big let down. Even the addition of popular actor Giancarlo Espocito as the main antagonist in the game failed to make that much of an impact.
Now to regain that lost ground Ubisoft might bring Far Cry 6 on the XBOX Game Pass service in near future but yeah it might not be as early as the other two big games ‘AC Valhalla and WD Legion’ but without any doubt there is a huge possibility of it being added to the service in near future.
4: Immortal Fenyx Rising:
Released back in December 2020, Immortal Fenyx Rising can be seen as a mixture of Zelda and Assassins Creed as it was an experiment by Ubisoft to compete against Nintendo’s popular Zelda franchise and it was somewhat of a hit and miss as far as its performance in the gaming market was concerned.
Ubisoft has already offered free weekends for Immortal Fenyx Rising many times in the past and there is a huge possibility that ultimately they will add the base game to the XBOX Game Pass in near future as Immortal Fenyx Rising 2 is definitely on the cards it seems.
5. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake:
Fans got very excited back in Sept 2020 when it was announced that Ubisoft iconic franchise Prince of Persia is getting a new title very soon but ultimately when the trailer of the game was released it left a sour taste in many people’s mouth as the graphics were so bad that it was looking like a game of PS2 era..
Later on Ubisoft announced that they have delayed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake to further work on its design and graphics and to resolve all the issues with the game. Now we don’t know when this game will release but there is a huge possibility that we might see it Day One on XBOX game pass just like RR6 Extraction.
