Talk of Control coming to Xbox Game Pass has been happening for a while, with the Xbox Game Pass account tweeting out a clue referencing a mysterious red light.
Given this tweet and past mentions of Control coming to Xbox Game Pass, we’re unsurprised to see official confirmation today that yes, Control is coming to Xbox Game Pass.
Control Confirmed for Xbox Game Pass
A list of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in December was shared today and at the top of the list is Control. It’s been teased for a while now that Control is coming to Xbox Game Pass with Phil Spencer accidentally spilling the beans last year during an Extra Life stream on Mixer.
Everything went silent for a while, and then recently the Twitter account for Xbox Game Pass posted a hint referencing a red light. The tease wasn’t official confirmation, so there was room for speculation up until today when the Xbox Game Pass lineup for December was revealed.
Not only is Control coming to Xbox Game Pass in December, but so are other exciting titles like Slime Rancher, GreedFall, and Gang Beasts. If you recently purchased games like Control or Gang Beasts, you may be able to refund those purchases.
Some gamers have reported success in returning recently purchased games that are now coming to Xbox Game Pass, but it depends on the return policy of where you purchased those games from so keep that in mind during the refund process.
