Microsoft May have Intentionally “Hinted” at Doom Eternal Coming To Gamepass

Microsoft keeps on kicking it with the Xbox stories here and there. Right now, in 2020, it is clear that Xbox has the lead in the console race. While the final outcome may vary by the time both consoles are out, Xbox has knocked Sony out of the park. From pricing to performance, the company takes the cake. Of course, games is something Xbox has always fallen behind in. Xbox continues to add more titles and has taken huge strides with its Gamepass. Now, the company recently dropped a “hint” in one of its emails from a bot and it gives users hope that Doom Eternal may be coming to the Gamepass pretty soon.

In the usual Xbox manner, holding high standards in advertising their presence, the company explains how there is “no hint” in the email and that people shouldn’t even bother looking for them. At first glance, you may also believe that this is just a clarification and nothing more. But then, we look at a tweet from Wario64 who explains it ever so skillfully.

The hidden text in the image is that “The Slayer is coming” which is a clear hint at Doom Eternal arriving to the consoles with Gamepass. This is perhaps quite expected too along with other Bethesda Softworks since Microsoft recently acquired the company. This is quite the news for Xbox fans who always envied PlayStation player for their never ending titles. Perhaps we would know for sure when and if the game actually drops. If it is a marketing strategy, once again, hats off to the company!
