'Return To Monkey Island' Receives Outstanding Reviews, But It's Not Coming To Xbox Yet

If you're a Monkey Island fan, then you probably already know at this point that the new, long-awaited Return to Monkey Island sequel won't be available on Xbox at launch - which is even more painful after seeing the review scores!

Currently, the game is sitting on a Metacritic average of around 90 for PC, with the likes of IGN and GamesRadar+ awarding 9/10 and 4/5 scores respectively for that version. The Switch version only has a few reviews thus far.

So, what's the status of the Xbox version of Return to Monkey Island? At the moment, we really don't know. PC and Switch are the only confirmed platforms, but we assume Xbox and PlayStation will be added to the mix at some point.

It would seem Nintendo has an exclusive deal for the console version right now, which could ultimately last anywhere from a few months to over a year. Let's hope when the game does finally arrive on Xbox, it joins Game Pass as well!
