Is Deathloop coming to Xbox Series X?

Best answer: Most likely, yes. It's currently a timed console exclusive on PS5, meaning it can come to other platforms at a later date. Arkane hasn't mentioned any potential Xbox Series X or Series S release, but with Microsoft having bought Bethesda, it's almost guaranteed.Powerhouse: Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) ($499 at Microsoft)Well-rounded: Xbox Series S (opens in new tab) ($299 at Microsoft)

Will Deathloop come to Xbox Series X?

Yes, you can probably expect Deathloop to come to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at some point. It was previously set to launch with the PS5 but was pushed back a few months into Q2 2021 due to the pandemic.

Now that Microsoft has purchased ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda, we can almost be certain that Deathloop will make it to Xbox Series X at some point in the future, though it won't be at launch. Exclusivity deals like this usually last for six months to one year.

Is Deathloop still coming to PS5?

Yes, Deathloop is still coming to PS5. It's odd seeing a game that Microsoft technically owns now releasing on Sony's platform, but that's what's happening. Bethesda previously had a deal with Sony to release Deathloop on the PS5 as a timed exclusive. Now that Microsoft has purchased Bethesda, it still plans to honor that agreement.
