I guess it's out of early access now.

Haha exactly! MS released the game as a half baked joke in 2018. Just like almost all their gamepass fodder. I'll definitely try it out later this year.

It's comments like Cerebrals that confirm how well MS are doing, guess MS must be lying about how successful Gamepass is with all that fodder they are using.

@Libra nobody knows whether or not Gamepass is even making a profit, because MS won't release concrete numbers. I hope it is successful though. It's their best idea in years. I just don't like how a lot of their 1st party content is released onto Gamepass in a half finished state. SoT, State of Decay 2, Bleeding Edge, and Crackdown 3 were all half finished games. They need to commit to quality, and not just release paid betas. It's really annoying.
