Microsoft has tried to buy Bungie on several occasions.

Xbox Game Pass may be receiving a major new addition, as rumors suggest Microsoft is spending a lot on something that isn’t an acquisition.

Rather than exclusive games, or even the console itself, it’s now clear that Xbox’s main draw is Game Pass, especially since Sony can’t boast of anything close to the same value- price.

Keeping Game Pass well stocked with top-tier games is a tough and expensive endeavor, and VentureBeat writer Jeff Grubb has suggested that Microsoft is currently spending a lot of money on something that isn’t an acquisition.

He wasn’t sure what exactly and asked other podcast attendees if they had any ideas, former Game Informer editor Imran Khan suggesting to Destiny 2 how the two have started to retract about how Microsoft recently attempted to acquire developer Bungie.

Of course, Microsoft once owned Bungie, when they were responsible for the first Halo games, but allowed them to become independent again when the studio grew increasingly unhappy with being a first-party developer.

After also severing ties with original Destiny publisher Activision, Bungie has reportedly been approached by Microsoft several times, the sticking point simply being that they are too expensive.

It’s unclear if Microsoft wanted to put them back to work on Halo, but for now at least it looks like the deal isn’t going through.

What else Microsoft might be spending the money on right now is a mystery though, with Khan suggesting he had heard similar rumors and it wasn’t so much about adding a big game to Game Pass but of all its extensions.

There are few games that fit this description on Game Pass, except for Destiny 2 when it arrives on November 10.

An alternative fan theory is that Cyberpunk 2077, which also has a number of expansions planned, could be the game in question.

There is no proof of this, but it has been suggested as a Game Pass contender multiple times by fans, simply because it is a major release unrelated to Sony. Being on Game Pass wouldn’t prevent it from being on PlayStation, it would just make it free for Xbox subscribers.
