What you need to know
- Jeff Grubb from VentureBeat suggested on Twitter that Cyberpunk 2077 was the kind of big third-party game Xbox might try to bring to Xbox Game Pass.
- Radek Grabowski from CD Projekt Red, was quick to respond, saying Cyberpunk 2077 wasn't coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch.
- Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on November 19, 2020.
In a Tweet, Jeff Grubb, a swell dude and a journalist at VentureBeat, used Cyberpunk 2077 as an example of a big game that Xbox would be willing to pay to get into Xbox Game Pass at launch. While Grubb was hardly making any strong indication it would happen, Radek Grabowski, Lead PR Manager for CD Projekt Red, stepped in to clarify anyways.
"You have to pick another example, Jeff. No Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077," Grabowski wrote. Obviously, this doesn't rule out the possibility of Cyberpunk 2077 coming to Xbox Game Pass at some point after launch but it's very clear you shouldn't expect an announcement happening any time soon.
Xbox Game Pass continues to grow, reaching over 10 million subscribers earlier this year. Xbox brings all of its first-party titles into the service at launch, such as the upcoming Halo Infinite. Third-party publishers however, do not put their games in at launch as a general rule, though there are of course exceptions.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on November 19, 2020 on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Stadia. When it does, players on Xbox Series X and PS5 will be able to get the upgraded version for free once it is available. This next-generation upgrade is currently expected at some point in 2021. In the meanwhile, for more on Cyberpunk 2077, you can take a look at some Braindancing gameplay that was recently released.
