Cyberpunk 2077 Devs Have No Plans For Xbox Game Pass
We are only a few months away from the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and excitement for the title is ramping up more than ever. The developers have begun revealing more and more about the highly anticipated game, but they have now also disclosed that their futuristic RPG will not be available through Xbox Game Pass.
In a recent exchange on Twitter, CD Projekt RED lead PR manager Radek Grabowski confirmed that the developers do not currently have any plans to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to the Xbox Game Pass. This was after VentureBeat‘s Jeff Grubb used the game as an example of Microsoft possibly bringing a big third-party game to Game Pass on day one, but Grabowski was quick to shoot that down.
You have to pick another example, Jeff. No Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077.

While CDPR does not currently plan to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to Xbox Game Pass, that doesn’t mean they won’t add the title down the line. After all, the first few months after a title launches are generally crucial, especially when it comes to sales. Putting the title on the Game Pass service from the get-go would put a small dent in those sales, and even though CDPR would likely be perfectly fine with that kind of hit, it’s probably best not to chance it.
In either case, Cyberpunk 2077 is currently slated for a November 19th release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
