According to Bandai Namco, the upcoming action RPG, Scarlet Nexus, is not headed to Xbox Game Pass
Most third party games new releases will not be heading to gamepass. Outriders was one of the exceptions.
I'm ok game pass exists to help cheap gamers but I don't mind paying 60 to support devs and keep quality games coming to my platform of choice.
It's like I said before, regardless of the amount of subscribes Game Pass has, these larger studios aren't exactly knocking down the door to get on there, which means people talking about Game Pass still have to pay full price for games.
My above comment has nothing to do with console wars as I prefer pc for my platform of choice.
Good. Just purchase the game. To show support and get more simular games
No plans “at this time”. I suspect the rumors were accurate and this is probably an Xbox E3 announcement. Watch this spot.
Ouch. Maybe in late 2022.
When it on sale it will be on game pass
The game wouldnt do well sales wise then lol. Im sure itll go on gp eventually though a year away or so.
Surely if they weren't confident of it's ability to sell they would have it on Gamepass as a safety net? Totally illogical comment. As much as I can't argue with the value of Gamepass (especially on promotion price), I hate that it breeds this mindset of not buying or owning your own games anymore if they aren't in Gamepass. Gamepass should be a complimentary service with your purchases of games you actually want, you shouldn't just play what you're told you can play by any subscription.
You Xbots are funny. Day one gamepass release, it’s the greatest thing ever, gamepass rules. Doesn’t come it gamepass day one, it won’t sell well anyways. You are a fickle bunch.
This type of games sell most on Playstation and Nintendo regardless lol
Won't end up on GP unless Ms's willing to write up a huge check. Most 3rd party blockbusters won't end up on GP at launch. Gamers should keep these expectations in check. These third party publishers are in the business of making money they're not out here running a charity event. Regardless of what Xbox fans think of gamepass for big publishers funding these hundred plus million dollar AAA Blockbusters it won't make a lot of sense to put them day one on a service costing $14.99 a month (not unless Microsoft is willing to write a blank check basically) If a publisher thinks a game will sell 5 million on Xbox, and by putting it on game pass it will sell 2 millions, then Microsoft has to cover up the 3 million in sales even after taking in their 30%. That's still a lot of money. I know a lot of gamers like me don't think about the business side but end of the day they're all trying to make as much profit as possible nobody's out here trying to do favors for Nintendo Sony or Microsoft
“We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time" Keywords: at this time. so tomorrow, perhaps they will have changed their minds or let's say the 13th of June.
Wow, a decent looking game coming to the Xbox platform and they expect you to.... buy it??!!!! Cue chimes of "I'll wait for it to come on gamepass" and "I've got plenty of games on gamepass I haven't even discovered yet, some with FPS boost too. I'll play those instead." And eventually it will appear on gamepass after low sales numbers due to gp subbers holding back. MS will offer a consolation cheque which will be grudgingly taken. Bandai exec 1: "But we made them a great game, why didn't they buy it?" Bandai exec 2: "All the Xbox owners wait for their games to appear on gamepass now." Bandai exec 3: "Well then it's not worth our while waiting for the consolation cheque, lets not pursue developing on that platform anymore." Bandai execs 1,2,3 "Agreed!" Phil Spencer : "Hey Satya, Bandai aren't going to make games for Xbox anymore, something about they don't like the gamepass model." Satya Nadella :"Ok How much to buy them out. But this is the last time!!!" Phil Spencer (winks) : "Thanks Daddy!"
We already have comments on this article saying it will come to GP and they will wait. I have been saying this for a while Ms is playing with fire when it comes to setting expectations for their fanbase
That is a hilarious comment, but true at the same time.
And that will help reinforce the thought that JRPGs don't do well on Xbox. Hard to justify making a JRPG for Xbox when you see their lack of support for games like Lost Oddysey, Blue Dragon and Eternal Sonota. I would throw in Resonance of Fate, Tales of Vesperia and The Last Remnant too but I can't find their sale numbers but I bet they didn't sell as well as expected.
I enjoyed the demo but my money is for Chivalry 2 maybe it will be on gamepass one day or ill pick it up 2nd hand like my corn.
Them this game is going to flop on Xbox as its users doesn't support these games at normal price.
MS didn't pay for this to be on Gamepass? I wonder why.
Thats fine I'm looking to picking this up on PC anyway to show support for this little gem.
