Hogwarts Legacy will finally be released on February 10, 2023, and some potential players are wondering whether or not the game will be included in Xbox Game Pass. We’ll clear things up!
What it’s about: We are all eagerly waiting for the last few weeks until the release of Hogwarts Legacy. Some players are asking themselves whether the game will also appear in the Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass gives you access to a number of games as part of a subscription model – much like Netflix for video games. You pay 9.99 euros per month and can play various games for it. We try to clarify if and when Hogwarts Legacy could appear in Game Pass.

Is Hogwarts Legacy included in Game Pass?
There is a concrete answer to this – no, Hogwarts Legacy will not be included in Game Pass. At least right at release, the game is not supposed to appear in Game Pass, neither for PC nor Xbox. So you’ll have to resort to a purchased version first to play Hogwarts Legacy on PC or Xbox.
When & Why do games appear in Game Pass? There is no reason why Hogwarts Legacy shouldn’t be released in Game Pass in the future, but the developers haven’t confirmed this yet. However, the past has shown that games that don’t achieve the expected sales figures end up in Game Pass faster than more successful titles. This is because the number of copies sold increases, and the game can still be considered a success.
In the next few weeks, we’ll probably find out whether gamers will receive Hogwarts Legacy and whether the game will subsequently be included in Game Pass. Especially the announced boycott of the game due to the scandals surrounding Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling could get the game into the Game Pass faster than expected.
Tip: The Xbox Game Pass is worthwhile due to other games. You can now get the Game Pass for only 1 dollar in the first month. This a good opportunity to take a closer look at some games, such as Doom Eternal, Grounded, or Outer Worlds.
