Slime Rancher 2 is the much-anticipated sequel to the cosy game sensation. But, since Monomi Park announced the game, concern has been circling about if the game will come to last-generation consoles. And, since it is releasing on Xbox Series X|S a lot of questions have been about if Slime Rancher 2 will be on Xbox One.
The game’s initial launch in September 2022 was in early access so by the time the game comes out the Xbox One would have been a last-generation console for upwards of three years. And, it is quite possible that the hardware may just be too outdated.
But, if you are asking will Slime Rancher 2 be on Xbox One, you can find out what Monomi Park has said. In addition, we also have a workaround that allows you to play on Xbox right now.
Will Slime Rancher 2 be on Xbox One?
Slime Rancher 2 is unlikely to get an Xbox One release. With the game being released into early access on Xbox Series X|S and PC, Monomi Park hasn’t said anything about a last-gen release. But, by the time the game is finished in 2023 or 2024 those consoles likely won’t be able to run the full experience.
Therefore, you shouldn’t expect Slime Rancher 2 to ever get a native Xbox One release. However, you will be able to play the game through Xbox Cloud Gaming on your Xbox One, thanks to the game supporting Cloud play through Xbox Game Pass.
Cloud play does come with its own issue though and you will need a high-quality internet connection for it to run smoothly.
So, there you have it. Those are the chances of Slime Rancher 2 being on Xbox One. While you wait for the full Slime Rancher 2 release date, check out our guide on what else you can play through Game Pass on Xbox One with our list of Game Pass games.
