Is Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox Game Pass?


    It’s worth knowing if Baldur’s Gate 3 is on Xbox Game Pass, as the Microsoft subscription service can be a useful way of trying a game without having to drop the massive amount of money that AAA games cost these days. 

    Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year, and the most expansive CRPG ever released, bringing the Dungeons & Dragons 5E formula to the digital medium. If you want to know if it is on Xbox Game Pass before purchasing the game, we’ve got you covered.

    No, Baldur’s Gate 3 is not on Xbox Game Pass, and won’t be for the foreseeable future as the game still doesn’t have an announcement for its Xbox release date.

    BG3 will be coming to PC on August 3, with the PlayStation 5 launch a month later on September 6. 

    We currently have no timeline for the Xbox Series X|S release date, and Larian has confirmed the only reason it’s not releasing on that platform at the same time as the PS5 due to a technical issue. 

    The Larian Director of Publishing. Michael Douse, confirmed on Twitter that there was “no exclusivity deal that prevents us from launching on Xbox”, going on to state that “the issue is getting split-screen working on the Series S”.

    This is due to the Xbox Series consoles having feature parity, meaning if something works on the Series X, it must also work on the less powerful Series S. 

    Will Baldur’s Gate 3 go on Xbox Game Pass?

    It’s hard to say if Baldur’s Gate 3 will ever come to Xbox Game Pass. Once it does release on the Xbox Series X|S, there’s no reason it couldn’t, but we can’t say for certain as none of their previous games have been added to Game Pass before.

    That’s all for our explainer of if Baldur’s Gate 3 is on Xbox Game Pass, and now you know it isn’t as there is no release date for the Xbox Series X|S version.
