Is Deathloop coming to Xbox Game Pass? Will we get to play the new title of Arkane Lyon on the subscription service?
Deathloop is Arcane Studios’ brand new action-adventure FPS game. The game was released on September 14 and received mostly positive reviews. The action shooter lets players take on the role of Colt, a one-of-a-kind assassin. He constantly fights Julianna, another strange assassin on the island, as he realizes he is stuck in a loop. Julianna, unlike Colt, prefers to keep the loop intact rather than break it, though nothing on the island of Blackreef is that simple.
Deathloop is a game developed by the same people who brought you Dishonored. It has immersive gameplay, interesting level design, and a break-the-loop concept.
However, many gamers are perplexed as to why the game was not released on Xbox consoles. While it is a Bethesda intellectual property that was purchased by Microsoft, it was only available on PlayStation 5. As a result, many people expected the game to be released on Xbox as well. Here’s why the game isn’t yet available on our consoles.
Will Deathloop Come to Xbox?
Deathloop will most likely be released on Xbox Series X|S at some point in the future. For the time being, Arcane Lyon’s new action-adventure game is only available on the PlayStation 5. Despite the fact that it was created by a studio that is now owned by Microsoft, the agreement was reached prior to the acquisition. The tech behemoth honored the exclusivity agreement by allowing the game to launch on PS5. This means Xbox owners will have to wait at least a year to learn more about the game’s future on the Xbox Series X and S.
We now have confirmation that the brand new FPS will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 for at least a year. “Not available on other consoles until at least 09/14/2022,” says the disclaimer. This statement can also be seen in the launch trailer, which you can see below.
Is Deathloop on Xbox Game Pass?
Unfortunately, the answer to this question is no. As of September 2021, Arcane Lyon’s arcade FPS is not included in Xbox Game Pass’s massive library. The exclusivity rights are the reason for the game’s absence from the subscription service. After Sony and Bethesda’s agreement expires in September 2022, we’ll most likely get our hands on Deathloop at some point in the future. There will also be an Xbox Game Pass version of the game.
Currently, the game is only available on PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam. On the popular gaming platform, the game received over 4,000 reviews and had a peak of 20,000 concurrent players. On Steam, the game has a “mostly positive” rating, so it’s safe to say it’s a smash hit.
A Successful Hit from Arkane Lyon
Despite the fact that Deathloop uses a concept that has the potential to become repetitive, Arkane Lyon was able to create an immersive gaming experience. As the protagonist, you’re always stuck in a loop and have to backtrack a lot to get back to the main story. It’s a fantastic game, which is why so many Xbox fans are eagerly anticipating its release on other platforms.
