ORIGINAL STORY 1pm UK: Deathloop is officially launching on Xbox and Game Pass next Tuesday.
The first-person single-player shooter, developed by Arkane Lyon, first released this time last year as a PlayStation 5 exclusive (as well as on PC).
The exclusivity raised eyebrows since the game’s publisher, Bethesda Softworks, was acquired by Microsoft earlier that year.
This official confirmation comes as an advertisement for the game appeared on the Xbox dashboard yesterday.
Deathloop receieved Eurogamer’s coveted Essential badge when it was reviewed by Edwin last year.
Edwin praised the timeloop shooter for perfecting the game mechanics of the Dishonored series, as well as the more contemporary setting.
