The Polish game studio has denied that Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to the Xbox Game Pass following a rumor circulating that it could.

In fact, this all started when a brief promotional video in support of Xbox Cloud Gaming coming to consoles included a brief clip of Cyberpunk 2077, and Xbox Cloud Gaming is part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions.

But, in reality, Cyberpunk 2077 is not currently on Xbox Game Pass nor has it been announced as coming to the subscription service.

There are no plans to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to Game Pass

The snowball effect for this rumor gained a lot of traction on Reddit as the discussion of the brief promotional clip began.

The original promotional video which featured the clip has now been taken down by Xbox, and no replacement has been uploaded yet.

However, CD Projekt Red’s Global PR Director Radek Grabowski has explicitly stated that there are no Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077.

But just because there are no plans at the moment does not mean there will never be plans, so maybe there still is hope for the future.

This being said, based on the fact that Xbox seemingly pulled the promotional video and the strong denial from CD Projekt Red, this certainly seems like a mistake rather than an unintentional leak ahead of some announcement.

For the time being, Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC.

It is also available to play on both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with a free upgrade now set to release in 2022 to take advantage of the next-gen hardware.

If you also want to take Cyberpunk 2077 out for a test drive, you can take advantage of one of the early deals.
