As the base of Game Pass gradually expands, it is expected that its influence in the global market will also grow. According to Microsoft’s announcement, more than 100 million gamers, including Game Pass subscribers, are enjoying Xbox games through devices such as consoles, PCs, and mobile devices. Therefore, it is expected that Korean companies will actively seek out the possibility of global pioneering through this.
