Bethesda's Deathloop has officially released today on PlayStation 5, and in case you missed it yesterday, the game received some absolutely stunning scores across the board, including a 10/10 from IGN and GameSpot.
Of course, the big talking point from an Xbox perspective is that Deathloop is actually owned by Xbox Game Studios following Microsoft's acquisition of Bethesda, and yet the game isn't coming to Xbox at launch. This is because Xbox promised to honour existing exclusivity deals that were made before the acquisition went through.
So, here's what we know so far about when Deathloop will be coming to Xbox:
What Is Deathloop's Xbox Release Date?
It looks very likely that Deathloop will release for Xbox on or around September 14, 2022. This marks one year since the game will have launched for PlayStation 5, and the date was referenced during Sony's State of Play stream back in July, when a gameplay walkthrough for Deathloop included the following disclaimer:
"*Also available on PC. Not available on other consoles until at least 09/14/22".
The team at Xbox (including boss Phil Spencer) have yet to comment on when Deathloop will arrive on Xbox, but it seems very likely they'll want to release it as soon as possible after that date. It will almost certainly become a part of Xbox Game Pass at the same time, like the vast majority of additional Bethesda titles.
If you really can't wait to play Deathloop and you don't already own a PlayStation 5, don't forget that the game is also available for PC, although it isn't accessible via the Microsoft Store for the time being — just Steam.
