If Microsoft’s tease means anything, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are in for free AAA games next month.
Now that we’re just past the halfway point in March, it’s time to start speculating just what free games are coming to Xbox’s Games With Gold program next month. While Microsoft has struggled to deliver high quality games in the past, it seems the company has been working hard to right that wrong in recent months. This month, subscribers were treated to well over $100 of free games that have all scored fairly well on metacritic. And while we don’t know exactly what the Xbox team has up their sleeve for April, Microsoft gave a big hint yesterday.

While blockbusters tend to be a broad term in video games, I think it’s safe to assume we won’t be seeing any small indie games in April. Personally, I’m hoping we’ll see Ryse or Dead Rising 3 offered on the One. The Xbox team has been mighty quiet about them the past few months, but I’m also pulling for Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty: Black Ops to come to the Games With Gold program, too! A man can dream, right?
What games do you think we’ll see in April? Have you been satisfied with the Games With Gold program in the past? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below or on Twitter!
