Bandai Namco Denies Scarlet Nexus Will Launch On Xbox Game Pass

There was a rumour flying around earlier this week courtesy of VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb, who suggested that he thought he'd heard Scarlet Nexus was launching into Xbox Game Pass, but that has been denied by Bandai Namco.

In a response to Video Games Chronicle, a spokesperson for the company had this to say:

“We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time and are excited for its launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on June 25."

At the time, Grubb stated during the latest XboxEra Podcast that, "I think that's a Game Pass day one, I think, is what I heard," later going on to again reiterate, "I think they might have secured this one, yeah."

Grubb is typically very accurate with insider information, but it looks like he heard incorrectly on this occasion. In any case, Scarlet Nexus will be with us in just a couple of weeks, and is available to pre-order right now on the Xbox Store.
