Cyberpunk 2077 will likely be playable on a variety of platforms when it launches in November, however you won’t discover it on Microsoft’s subscription service Xbox Game Cross.
The information was confirmed recently by CD Projekt Red’s Lead PR Manager, Radek Grabowski, on Twitter.
When VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb used Cyberpunk 2077 for instance of the type of blockbuster third-party launch that Microsoft would possibly look to have on Game Pass, Grabowski headed off any additional hypothesis by responding “You’ll have to choose one other instance, Jeff. No Sport Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077.”
You shall not Game Pass
Giving subscribers limitless entry to over 100 games for a monthly price of $9.99 / £7.99 / AU$10.95 Xbox Game Pass is an interesting proposition for Xbox homeowners, particularly as Xbox first-party titles are obtainable on it at launch.
Nevertheless, it’s not solely shocking that CD Projekt Crimson isn’t occupied with making Cyberpunk 2077 a Game Pass title, at the very least not right away. Though Game Pass is proving well-liked, amassing hundreds of thousands of subscribers, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the vital highly-anticipated titles of this year, and making it obtainable on the subscription service on launch would imply operating the chance of dropping gross sales. So whereas CD Projekt Crimson and Xbox have had a superb relationship within the run-up to the discharge of Cyberpunk 2077, what with the particular version Xbox One X and controller, Xbox Game Pass doesn’t look like within the pipeline.
After a few delays, Cyberpunk 2077 is anticipated to launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 19 2020 with a Stadia launch and free upgrades to Xbox Sequence X and PS5 anticipated at a later date.
