Will Madden NFL 22 be on Xbox Game Pass?

Madden NFL 22 has just arrived, bringing with it a host of new and improved features, from its M-Factor home field advantage system to its Performance Mode next-gen graphics setting.

Here's a breakdown of if and when Madden NFL 22 will be available on Xbox Game Pass.

Will Madden NFL 22 Be On Xbox Game Pass?

Although Madden NFL 22 has just released on Xbox and PC, it does not appear that the sports simulation will be offered on Xbox Game Pass until at least spring 2022.

Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft's video game subscription service, has picked up major momentum in the past few years as more and more third-party publishers have launched their brand new titles on the platform.

With Microsoft's deal to bring EA Play into the fold, titles such as FIFA 21, UFC 4 and Madden NFL 21 all remain fully accessible to those with an Xbox Game Pass subscription as well.

Madden NFL 21 initially released for PC and consoles back on Aug. 28, 2020. EA announced it was coming to Xbox Game Pass on Feb. 22, 2021, and ultimately delivered on its promise as planned March 2, when the game hit the service.

Judging by the timeline that Madden NFL 21 took to be added to the Xbox Game Pass library, it can be estimated with some confidence that the newest iteration will eventually do the same as well.
