Scarlet Nexus won't be coming to Xbox Game Pass on launch day, Bandai Namco has stated.
Earlier today on June 8, the developer and publisher flatly denied that its upcoming action-RPG would be coming to Xbox Game Pass, in a statement provided to VGC. "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," Bandai Namco stated.
This all follows from a claim last week by journalist Jeff Grubb that he'd heard Xbox had secured Bandai Namco's game for its subscription service. "I think that’s a Game Pass day one game, is what I heard," Grubb said while appearing on the XboxEra podcast. "The thing about Game Pass day one deals, especially for anything that’s relatively big, those deals get made very, very late," the reporter continued, before going on to add "so I think they might have secured this one, yeah."
If you're at all unfamiliar with Scarlet Nexus, it's a fast-paced RPG set in futuristic Tokyo, where elite warriors and cadets have to protect humanity against demons that fall out of the sky.
