‘Deathloop’ Xbox Game Pass for consoles, PC and PS4: there is still hope

Must Read

Deathloop Xbox and Game Pass for PC Will Deathloop ever be ported over to other platforms? Let’s investigate.

Considering Deathloop is published by Bethesda, we’ll no doubt see it appear on an Xbox console, as well as Game Pass on PC, at a later time. And with Bethesda being a first-party Microsoft company, you can expect to see it on Xbox Game Pass. Deathloop will come to other platforms eventually.Bethesda Softworks

Deathloop Xbox Game Pass for PC release date While Deathloop has been heavily marketed by Sony, the shooter is a timed exclusive, meaning it will eventually come to other platforms. The fine print at the end of the gameplay trailer above reads “Not available on other consoles until at least September 14, 2022.”

It just isn’t totally clear when this will come to be. Pretty much all of Bethesda’s most popular games are available through Microsoft’s gaming subscription service, so we’d be shocked if Deathloop didn’t make an appearance at some point. It will likely be available for Xbox Series X|S, though you shouldn’t expect to play it on Xbox One since Deathloop is only available on PS5 right now. Still, it’s a good sign Xbox players will probably get their hands on it at some point.

One-year exclusivity is standard with many games, such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, which was first available on Xbox in 2015. It didn’t launch on PlayStation until the following year in 2016. Another famous timed exclusive is BioShock, which launched for Xbox 360 in 2007 but didn’t come to PS3 until 2008. Assuming that date sticks, this will be a full year after its release on PlayStation 5.

Initially, Final Fantasy VII Remake was meant to just be a PlayStation exclusive for a year, following the same trend as countless games before it. But it launched for PS4 in 2020 and has yet to come to other platforms. In 2021, an enhanced version titled Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade launched for PS5. So, it appears Sony has extended its exclusivity deal with Square Enix in this case, which very well could happen with Deathloop. However, one example might not bode well for Xbox players looking forward to Deathloop, and that has to do with the way Final Fantasy VII Remake has been handled. This isn’t a Bethesda game, sure, but it is a timed PlayStation exclusive, just like Deathloop. There are numerous examples of timed exclusives, and in many cases, the wait isn’t usually long. However, other games take much longer to appear on other platforms, such as the original Mass Effect. It first came to Xbox 360 in 2007 but wasn’t available on PS3 until 2012 as part of the trilogy collection.
