Gears 5 has become the most popular game on the Xbox Game Pass

There is no doubt that Gears 5 has proven to be a profitable game for Microsoft, and proof of that is that according to Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners, the latest title in the series helped to further popularize the Xbox Game Pass .

The analyst pointed out, in a message on his personal Twitter profile, that the title became the service’s first big hit, helping to further increase its number of subscriptions.

Gears 5 is the first mega hit on Gamepass.

Competitive pricing and recent offers, a large library of games and access to MS 1st party has led to a high number of sign ups.

MS will be hoping a lot of users stick to the service going forward.
