According to a leaked document, Xbox Game Pass failed to convince as much as Microsoft hoped.
Hard blow for Microsoft, which did not achieve the objectives that it had set with Xbox Game Pass. In a leaked financial document revealed by Axios, we discovered the plans of the American company for its gaming platform.
In this document, we can see that the Redmond firm expected a growth close to 47.79% (yes, that’s right) in the period from June 2020 to June 2021. Finally, reality comes to break this dream, with a 37.48% effective growth. .
10% less doesn’t seem so dramatic. However, this shows quite a significant loss of speed in the growth of the platform. The previous year, Microsoft had set a goal of achieving 71% growth, successfully since Xbox Game Pass had reached 85.75%.
These rising forecasts explain this mistake by the Take-Two boss during a panel discussion at Wrap’s The Grill 2021. Strauss Zelnick had notably stated that the platform had no less than “30 million subscribers,” before Phil Spencer summed it up. , Xbox boss, also present at the event.
In fact, according to the estimates of an analyst at Niko Partners, based on these leaked documents, the number of Xbox Game Pass subscribers should be around 20 million in June. Microsoft has not released a figure since January, when the firm officially declared that its platform had 18 million subscribers worldwide.
This would put Game Pass submarines at around 20 million as of June if adjusted for the 37% year-on-year growth figure.

Any news next month?
Microsoft could provide more information next month. In fact, the firm is organizing a special broadcast on November 15 starting at 6 pm (French time) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its home console. If the company has already indicated that the event will be dedicated mainly to the retrospective of the last 20 years of its console, we can imagine that Microsoft will give some news about its Xbox Game Pass.
The platform is preparing to launch some of its new flagship features, including the future Forza Horizon 5, which will arrive next month, or Halo Infinite, which will arrive in December. This may be the opportunity for the firm to update its figures, officially this time.
