A new Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate update has disappointing news for subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. Right now, Xbox Game Pass is available in two forms.

The base form runs at $10 a month. In addition to this, there’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $15 a month. For an extra five dollars a month, this version comes with Xbox Live Gold, EA Play, and a variety of other perks and limited-time offers. There have been rumors that this version is going to further expand with the addition of Ubisoft+. While there have been plenty of rumors of this happening — including rumors from credible sources — nothing has come of these rumors. Suffice to say, when Ubisoft seemingly and accidentally confirmed the subscription service was coming to Xbox Game Pass, many Xbox fans got excited. Turns out there’s nothing to be excited about though.

All of the confusion comes courtesy of the official Ubisoft Netherlands account over on Instagram. When asked about the subscription service coming to Xbox Game Pass, the official Instagram account responded with the smiling face with heart-eyes emoji. Many took this as a nod and wink that the subscription service was coming to Xbox Game Pass. However, after this began to make the rounds, the Instagram account issued the following statement:

“Apologies for the confusion! We need to put this right. Ubisoft+ is coming to Xbox in the future, but nothing is known about Xbox Game Pass yet,” reads the clarification. “However, Rainbow Six Extraction, for example, is already available for Xbox Game Pass. Sorry for any false hope! No further information is known about this.”

Now, it’s important to note that the blurb above comes courtesy of Google Translate, so there’s a chance vital context and meaning are being lost in the process. That said, if you thought Ubisoft was hinting at Ubisoft+ coming to Xbox Game Pass, well it wasn’t. Of course, the person running this account would not be privy to this information in the first place, but most that got excited initially overlooked this tidbit.

As always, we will keep you updated as the situation evolves. In the meantime, for more coverage on not just everything Xbox Game Pass, but all things Xbox in general — including all of the latest news, all of the latest rumors and leaks, and all of the latest speculation

Several Xbox One games — including some popular titles — are $5 or less right now, courtesy of GameStop and a variety of sales the retailer is running. Unfortunately, what’s not included are any Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S games. However, every game below is playable on these machines via backward compatibility. As for the games themselves, the most notable come the way of Bethesda, which is now owned by Xbox. There are also some notable games from EA as well, which isn’t owned by Xbox, but they do have a larger partnership in the form of EA Play’s inclusion of Xbox Game Pass.

What’s the catch? Well, some of the games are pre-owned only. Of course, with GameStop, all pre-owned games are tested and certified, but if you prefer your games new some of the deals below may not be very relevant to you. And of course, by the time you’re reading this, the various deals below may have expired. When they will expire, we don’t know, but we do know that they are limited-time offers
