Capcom’s Resident Evil Village is set to be one of the biggest games of 2021 and it would be a huge get for Microsoft if it was released on Xbox Game Pass, especially at launch. It seems unlikely that Microsoft’s service will nab Resident Evil Village within its first year, due to commitments to other platforms.
Resident Evil Village could come to Xbox Game Pass in the future, but it’s unlikely to happen near launch due to Sony’s promotion of the game.
The reason all of this information is relevant is that it proves Capcom is closer to Sony when it comes to the Resident Evil franchise. This can be seen with Resident Evil Village being announced during the June 2020 PS5 event. The game was also recently featured during Sony’s Play! Play! Play! livestream event, along with Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Sony has been hyping up Resident Evil Village as much as Capcom has, to the point where it practically feels like a PlayStation exclusive.
Although RE Village is coming to Xbox consoles, there is currently no word regarding the newest Resident Evil game arriving on Xbox Game Pass. It seems unlikely to happen at launch, or even within the first year of release. Sony has been promoting Resident Evil Village hard and Capcom has reciprocated with exclusive early demos on PlayStation platforms. It’s more likely to happen once a year has passed and the “newness” value of the game starts to diminish, especially as Capcom is known for discounting its games quickly in sales.
It’s not impossible for Microsoft to front the cash needed to bring Resident Evil Village to Xbox Game Pass, especially as it did so recently for Outriders’ day one release. It just seems highly unlikely, given the relationship between Capcom and Sony regarding the game. There’s a good chance that it will happen further down the road, once the hype surrounding RE Village dies down and the initial sales rush ends.
