Deathloop Xbox Game Pass partnership may be a real thing. Even though it hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, it’s highly possible that Xbox Game Pass will get a significant new game in the coming month.
Xbox Game Pass may add Deathloop to its library
Several exclusivity agreements had already been established when Microsoft bought Bethesda and its companies. Since Microsoft upheld existing Bethesda exclusivity agreements, titles like Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo were effectively released on the PlayStation 5. However, it has always been believed that as soon as the exclusive agreements for those games expired, they would quickly be released on Xbox, and in the case of Deathloop, it appears as though that moment is rapidly approaching.
Deathloop goes free after September 14
We were aware that Deathloop’s PS5 exclusivity was valid for a full year even before the game was released. Deathloop’s PS5 release date, September 14, 2021, will be commemorated one year from that date in the following month. It follows that Deathloop might theoretically be released for Xbox Series X at any time after September 14. As a result, it’s likely that Game Pass customers will get the game on day one as soon as feasible.
Deathloop’s PS5 exclusivity term is soon to expire, but there have been no news regarding the game’s potential Xbox port. Although specifics like that are unknown at this moment, it’s probable that is a component of the agreement reached with Sony. Deathloop, one of the most critically lauded games published last year and one of the highest-rated PS5 games to date, should be a significant addition to Game Pass whenever it eventually becomes available.
The reviews for Deathloop were overwhelmingly positive, praising both Arkane’s distinctive first-person shooting action and the game’s original time loop concept. It would be worthwhile to buy it outright, so getting access to it through Xbox Game Pass will be a great deal. But it’s still unclear if Deathloop will be one of the new Xbox Game Pass releases in September 2022 or if Microsoft will hold off a little longer.
Deathloop would be a fantastic way to add some variety to the new Xbox Game Pass titles for September 2022, but it’s likely that Microsoft will want to hold off and release it later so that it has more time to market it effectively. After the PS5 exclusivity time expires in September, perhaps the Xbox port announcement for Deathloop will follow soon after, and the game itself will arrive in October or November.
At this point, all of this is just conjecture. Although we can’t say with certainty how Microsoft intends to release the Deathloop Xbox port, we do know that, once it comes, it will almost probably be an Xbox Game Pass day one release.
