Is Diablo IV Coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Blizzard Entertainment

Diablo IV is set to release on June 6, 2023, but will it be coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Things are heating up as we approach Diablo IV's first Early Access weekend. Kicking off on March 17, the Early Access Beta is available to those who have pre-ordered the game, and will run until March 19. A second Open Beta will begin on March 24, and run until March 26.

During the Betas, players will be able level up their characters to Level 25, and get a first glimpse of the game's campaign through the Prologue and the entirety of Act 1.

Players will be able to hop into the Betas on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. Xbox players will be able to jump into the Open Beta, but when the full release rolls around on June 6, will it be available on Xbox Game Pass?

Is Diablo IV Coming to Xbox Game Pass?

At the time of writing, it seems that Diablo IV will not be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch.

As part of Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the company made it clear that they were looking to merge Activision's game library "including Overwatch, Diablo and Call of Duty” with Xbox Game Pass. But, with the deal still having problems (such as being blocked by the Federal Trade Commission), it could be some time before the games migrate over.

Of course, Microsoft could choose to release Diablo IV on Game Pass before finalization of the deal. But, so far, any plans have yet to be revealed. For now, Xbox players will only be able to enjoy Diablo IV by purchasing it outright.
