EA Access may not be the only third-party game subscription service that Steam users will be able to enjoy in the coming future. According to Valve News Network’s Tyler McVicker (a leaker who’s commonly credited with exposing parts of Half-Life: Alyx before it was officially announced), Valve is in discussions with Microsoft about getting its popular game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, on Steam. While McVicker did not have anything concrete to share and merely claimed that it was happening in a recent broadcast, this is not the first time that the rumored integration has popped up—an insider on gaming forum MetaCouncil alluded to something similar earlier this year in a list of purported Steam additions, which include now-confirmed titles such as Team NINJA’s Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection. The integration of Xbox Game Pass on Steam is anticipated for numerous reasons that include sluggish performance of the Windows 10 Xbox app.

Question: Is Valve considering a subscription service like Game Pass on Steam?
McVicker: Valve is trying to get Game Pass on Steam. Boom.
