Scarlet Nexus, the upcoming RPG from Bandai Namco is one of the most anticipated games to come out this year. Announced back in 2020, the game is being developed by the people behind the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite Tales series.

One of the highlights of the game is that it features two playable protagonists, Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall. Depending on the character they choose, they will not only be able to explore new locations, but that will also have an impact on the game’s storyline.

Will Scarlet Nexus be available on Xbox Game Pass at Launch?

It was rumored a few weeks ago that Scarlet Nexus will be arriving on Xbox Games Pass. Prominent game journalist Jeff Grubb had claimed that Xbox has secured the game as a launch day Xbox Game Pass title, however, such rumors were turned down by Bandai Namco.

In a statement to VGC, Bandai Namco explicitly denied such rumors. “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,”

After that statement, we haven’t heard anything about the game’s arrival on the Xbox Games Pass. Considering that the release date, June 25, is just a couple of days away, the possibility of the game coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch is pretty much impossible. However, we might as well see the game coming to Xbox Game Pass in the near future.
