I really want to play Humankind. And I can actually play it right now with my Gamepass subscription. It isn’t on the console versions but it is on the PC versions. But…I can’t play it.
Actually, I can, but there’s a risk involved because of Gamepass on PC and something Microsoft has done. There’s a chance, and seemingly a high one, that wherever that game gets installed, a number of issues could crop up. Mostly, it’s that you can’t fully delete a game from your system when you are done with it. Something stays behind. Sometimes it reinstalls the game later. Sometimes other bugs occur. And the thing is, it isn’t because of the game, it’s “Gamepass On PC” that has the issue. So any number of those games available could cause problems.
The other problem about this issue is that Microsoft doesn’t seem at all concerned with it. Not from the numerous threads I’ve read about this and tweets which show no sign of any sort of update coming that could fix it. I mean, there’s not even acknowledgement of it.
Speaking of things that game companies aren’t talking about…Ubisoft, it’s been 2,923 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
