In a recent interview, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick accidentally confirmed Xbox Game Pass' current subscriber count, stating it's around 30 million.
Within an interview on Yahoo - which has been taken down as it was posted early, but you can find details here - around the 34:35 mark, Zelnick mentioned that Game Pass has now 30 million subscribers. Xbox executive Phil Spencer, who was also in the interview, quickly followed up by stating the last public count was around 18 million.

Assuming Zelnick's number is accurate, that's a massive 40% subscriber count increase from the previous 18 million count. Considering Microsoft's push for Game Pass, it could still see growth in the coming years. Xbox Series X|S supplies are still in demand and stock shortages could continue until 2022.
Elsewhere, testing for Xbox Cloud Gaming in consoles has already begun for some insiders, who've begun testing it through their devices. It's still unclear when that'll officially launch for all Xbox users, though late 2021 seems likely. As announced during Xbox's Showcase at Tokyo Game Show, Xbox Cloud Gaming is also extending to Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Japan tomorrow.
Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft 's video game subscription service primarily for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles, as well as for the Windows 10, 11, and Android/iOS device via Xbox Cloud Gaming. Make sure to follow us for more Xbox news and updates.
