Back in September of this year, Microsoft and EA partnered together to deliver EA Play on Xbox Game Pass. They made plans to give Game Pass Ultimate and Game Pass for PC subscribers access to EA Play by the end of the year with a general holiday 2020 release. Both services allow subscribers to browse and play several different titles from either publishers’ library as well as other games. Game Pass giving access to EA titles at no additional charge would prove to be a huge bargain for consumers.
With all of that said, EA Play games became accessible on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for consoles on November 10th while giving PC subscribers a launch date of December 15th. This November 10th integration also coincided with the Xbox Series X|S launch. That meant next-gen console owners who subscribed to Game Pass Ultimate would not only be able to play games such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Forza Horizon 4 but also Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Battlefield V.
As for the launch date of EA Play on Game Pass for PC, today is December 15th, and through an Xbox Wire blogpost the Xbox Game Pass team details the need for a delay. Based on how abrupt the news is, they likely found some issues in the integration on the Xbox app for PC but it’s hard to say for certain. The Xbox Game Pass team states that we can now expect to see EA Play on Game Pass for PC sometime in 2021.
