It’s hard to keep a big new game release under wraps these days, and back before Battlefield 2042 had been officially revealed, there were dozens of rumours around about DICE’s new first-person shooter. One of those rumours was that Battlefield 2042 was going to be an Xbox Game Pass exclusive.
Now the Battlefield 2042 release date has been confirmed, we know that’s not the case. The game is coming to all major platforms (PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4) so it’s not an Xbox exclusive in any way. There is, however, a possibility that Battlefield 2042 might still make an appearance on Xbox Game Pass later down the line.
So if you’re here to see whether you can cop this exciting game for the superb price of an Xbox Game Pass subscription, you’re in luck. Here’s everything we know about Battlefield 2042 on Xbox Game Pass.
Is Battlefield 2042 on Game Pass?
Battlefield 2042 might not be an Xbox exclusive, but that doesn’t mean the game isn’t coming to Xbox Game Pass.
EA and Microsoft haven’t commented on whether the game will be available on the subscription service just yet, but there is a possibility. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users have access to EA Play, EA’s subscription service, that gives players access to a load of benefits, including some of EA’s top titles.
Currently, all the previous Battlefield games are available through this service, but it’s unlikely that Battlefield 2042 will join them at launch. The game wasn’t listed for Xbox Game Pass during the Xbox E3 conference, suggesting we’ll have to wait a while to play it through the subscription service.
