Xbox Game Pass for PC access to the EA Play library won’t start until 2021, Microsoft announced this morning. It was planned sometime in December.
When Microsoft and Electronic Arts announced that Game Pass members would get games from EA Play, the companies said it would roll out in November for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and in December for Xbox Game Pass for PC. That has now moved to January at the earliest.
Quick Update: To ensure a great experience for everyone, EA Play will not launch on PC with Xbox Game Pass until 2021.

Note: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($ 14.99 per month) subscribers also have Xbox Game Pass for PC; their access to EA Play games is currently only through an Xbox One or Xbox Series X. Subscribers to the standard Xbox Game Pass (the $ 9.99 monthly subscription) will not receive EA Play.
In September, EA and Microsoft announced that the partnership would be in time for the Xbox Series X launch on November 10. Xbox Game Pass (console) subscribers currently have access to 86 EA Play titles (formerly EA Access) with their subscription. .
