The success of Deathloop, a PS5 console exclusive, bodes well for Xbox and Game Pass

Deathloop being a PS5 console exclusive means that Xbox fans are being left out of all the fun, but the game’s success should ultimately be a good thing for Xbox and Game Pass in the long run.

Deathloop from Dishonored developers Arkane Studios is out now and has earned rave reviews. All of the positive Deathloop reviews have helped propel the first-person shooter to the top, making it one of the highest-rated video games to have released in all of 2021 so far.

Arkane Studios is owned by Bethesda, and is therefore owned by Xbox since Xbox acquired Bethesda earlier this year. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has made it clear that acquiring Bethesda was a strategic move to ensure a pipeline of console exclusive games for Xbox and Game Pass.

However, Xbox has honored previous exclusivity details signed between Bethesda and PlayStation, meaning that even though Deathloop was technically published by an Xbox-owned company, it will not be available for Xbox Series X or PC Game Pass for quite some time.

Reports indicate that the Deathloop PS5 exclusivity deal is for 12 months, meaning that Deathloop will be eligible for release on Xbox and Game Pass for the first time exactly one year from now.

It’s possible that Microsoft will release the Xbox version of Deathloop immediately, but it’s also possible that it will hold back and wait to release the game at a slightly later date. Whatever the case may be, fans shouldn’t expect Deathloop to hit Xbox or Game Pass until September 14, 2022 at the very earliest.
