CD Projekt Red Denies Cyberpunk 2077 Will Enter Game Pass


CD Projekt Red: A representative of developer CD Projekt Red has denied that Cyberpunk 2077 will soon be released on Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription service.

The speculation didn’t start by chance: communities on Reddit found a snippet of gameplay from the game in a commercial for the platform, more specifically in an Xbox Cloud Gaming video and the service’s availability for Xbox Series S and X, as well as Xbox One.

Users have even come across the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay trailer that features the same first-person scene of the player causing an explosion in a remote setting while being cornered by androids.

“There are no plans for Cyberpunk 2077 on Game Pass,” a company representative told Video Game Chronicles (VGC) website. However, the spokesman did not explain why an excerpt of the title, which will no longer receive updates this year, appeared in the commercial.

So far, Microsoft has not commented on the case, but the games that will enter the Game Pass catalog by the end of November 2021 have already been officially released and do not include the CD Projekt Red game.

Previously called xCloud, the Cloud Gaming service streams games from the Game Pass catalog to compatible devices and officially arrived in Brazil at the end of September 2021.
