A happy new year to you, here’s the Xbox Game Pass January 2021 games coming to the monthly gaming subscription service.
Last month, was fantastic, there was a huge list of games made available to subscribers including Disney Plus. With Disney Plus being made available to game pass subscribers I wonder if that opens up the doors of other collaborative partnerships in the future. I hope it leads to more and more perks being added to the membership scheme.
So with 2020 firmly behind us, we take a look at whats in store in the first month of 2020. Let’s get into the article and check out all of the upcoming games this January!
Xbox Game Pass January 2021
We’re going to outline all the of the amazing games that will be made available to game pass members as well as what we’d love to see (in the form of our prediction) come to the subscription service. It’s just a bit of fun and more of a wishlist, we don’t have any insider knowledge.
Xbox Game Pass January 2021 Game Pass:
Here’s what’s confirmed to be coming to the subscription service:
- The Ascent (Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One)
- More Games Added Soon
Welcome to The Ascent Group arcology, a self-contained corporate-run metropolis, stretching high into the sky and filled with creatures from all over the galaxy.
You play as a worker, enslaved by the company that owns you and everyone else in your district. One day, whilst sent on a routine assignment to make use of your skills with a cyberdeck, you are suddenly caught in a vortex of catastrophic events. The Ascent Group, the largest mega corporation on the planet, shuts down for unknown reasons, causing the automated security systems to go haywire.
The survival of your district is threatened: rival corporations are trying to force appropriation and crime syndicates are looking to boost their black-market augmentation trade. You must take up arms to stop them from seizing control and embark on a new mission to find out what started it all.

With rumours of a Battle Royale mode coming to Halo and other rumours of this being delayed until the end of 2021, we’re hoping it’ll arrive sooner rather than later and be made available on Xbox Game Pass in January.
Halo Infinite is an upcoming first-person shooter game that has been developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios for Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
It’s the sixth main entry of Halo franchise, and overall it’s the fourteenth Halo game, it starts from where the story of Halo 5: Guardians finished.
Halo Infinite was planned to launch with the Xbox Series X/S on November 10, 2020, but was delayed in August 2020 to 2021. For further details hit the affiliate link here: Halo Infinite.
Another brand new game.
The game takes place in your head.
Psychonauts 2 is a mind-bending trip through the strange worlds hiding inside our brains. Freshly-minted special agent and acrobat extraordinaire Razputin “Raz” Aquato returns to unpack emotional baggage and expand mental horizons.
Along the way he’ll help new friends, like this magical mote of light voiced (and sung) by Jack Black. Raz must use his powers to unravel dark mysteries about the Psychonauts team and his own family origins.
As more games are announced and become available we’ll update this article.
