Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now enjoy the cloud game on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, an announcement that came as a surprise and was accompanied by a trailer. It didn’t take long for users to detect a specific frame, in which several robots could be seen annihilated by the player. That clip belongs to Cyberpunk 2077, which has raised suspicions that it may be included in the service. However, CD Projekt RED has denied this.
A representative of the Polish company has stated to VGC that “no plans ”to release Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox Game Pass. Thus, unless there is a decision in another direction soon, the time has not yet come for this sci-fi title to accompany The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the game catalog.
Xbox Game Pass es un subscription service that allows gamers to access numerous video games. All titles published by Xbox Game Studios are added to the library from day one, but third party agreements allow cross-platform video games to be part of the catalog.

When is the next-gen version coming out?
CD Projekt RED’s initial plans were to release the specific edition for next-gen machines (free update if you already have the game) in 2021, but the disastrous launch changed the roadmap. The study has set as an objective that it be published in the first half of 2022, while the version next gen The Witcher 3, developed by Sabe Interactive, will go into the second half.
Cyberpunk 2077 went on sale last December on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. The current version still works through backward compatibility on the next-gen machines, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5.
