Cyberpunk 2077 Not Planned for Xbox Game Pass - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 11 July 2020 / 999 Views
CD Projekt Red released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox Game Pass in December 2019, which has led to some speculation that the developers next game, Cyberpunk 2077, will be coming to the subscription service as well when it launches later this year.
CD Projekt Red lead PR manager Radek Grabowski via Twitter revealed there are currently no plans to release the game on Xbox Game Pass. This was in response to Venture Beat's Jeff Grub who used Cyberpunk 2077 coming to Xbox Game Pass as an example as a way for Microsoft to compete with the PS5 timed exclusive titles.
"Let's just use Cyberpunk  as an example," said Grubb. "[Microsoft] pays to get it on [Xbox Game Pass] day one, but it's still available on Stadia, PC, and PlayStation for $60. And Microsoft doesn't have to pay to replace the missed revenue from PS -- only Xbox. And maybe only for three months."
"You have to pick another example, Jeff," Grabowski said in a reply tweet. "No Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077."
