Xbox Game Pass received excellent games throughout 2023 and, apparently, it will close the year in a great way. As of this writing, there are already some interesting titles confirmed for December; however, some gamers are concerned for one reason: there are too few games.
Several fans of the brand recalled that Xbox Game Pass has had rather weak year-end closings, where there are even no new releases for the second half of December. Despite this, they hope that Microsoft is preparing a big surprise to close 2023 on a high note.
What games will be coming to Xbox Game Pass in December?
Usually, studios confirm their games for Xbox Game Pass in advance and that allows to partially assemble the list of titles for each month in advance, before Microsoft makes the official announcement. However, for December there are very few games confirmed.
For now, we know that SteamWorld Build, the new installment of the Thunderful Group franchise will arrive on the service on December 1. After that, players will be able to enjoy Against the Storm, a city-building game that will be added to the catalog on December 8. Both titles will be day 1 releases.
There are currently no other games confirmed for the service, so users fear that Microsoft will continue with its habit and offer few titles in December. On the other hand, there are also fans who believe that The Game Awards 2023 could have strong announcements for the service, as many want to see Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox Game Pass.
All that said, we'll have to wait a few days for the official list of games for the first half of December and to find out if Microsoft will offer new titles during the latter part of the month.
