Bandai Namco Shuts Down Scarlet Nexus Game Pass Rumors

The game won't be launching on Microsoft's service later this month.

A lot of games are launching on Xbox Game Pass day and date, but it doesn’t sound like Bandai Namco’s upcoming action RPG Scarlet Nexus isn’t one of them.

Bandai Namco issued a statement to VGC confirming Scarlet Nexus won’t be coming to Game Pass any time soon after rumors began circulating yesterday.

“We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time and are excited for its launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on June 25,” a company spokesperson told the outlet.

In other news:

Scarlet Nexus was first revealed during an Inside Xbox presentation just over a year ago. Bandai Namco is set to make an appearance at E3 2021 and Summer Game Fest, so it’s likely we’ll see some more of the game there. For more on E3, Summer Game Fest, and all the showcases taking place over the course of the next week, be sure to check out our Hot Game Summer master post where dates and times are being added as they’re announced.
