No, Hogwarts Legacy will not be on Xbox Game Pass at launch or in the near future. Microsoft has not indicated that it’s coming to its streaming platform.

However, it is possible that it could come to Xbox Game Pass eventually. Other Warner Bros games have been on Game Pass, such as the Arkham and Shadow of Mordor series.

It is also worth noting that PlayStation has evidently paid to have marketing rights and exclusive content for a year.

Therefore, it’s possible that they may also have a deal prohibiting Xbox from putting Hogwarts Legacy on Game Pass for at least a year to avoid potential buyers purchasing it on any other platform.

The PlayStation-exclusive content for Hogwarts Legacy is absolutely huge and adds an entirely new feature to the game!

Of course, this doesn’t mean Hogwarts Legacy is not coming to Xbox. In fact, it is releasing on all platforms, both last and next-gen, including the Nintendo Switch.

When Is Hogwarts Legacy Coming to Xbox Game Pass?

There is currently no confirmed date as to when Hogwarts Legacy may come to Game Pass. Fans will, unfortunately, have to wait.

Considering that the PlayStation-exclusive content ends in February 2024, if it is to happen, it will likely be sometime after that.

It may also depend on how well-received Hogwarts Legacy is, as if Microsoft has to wait a year to put it on their streaming service, it may not be financially viable to do so if it is received poorly.

However, previews and early gameplay for Hogwarts Legacy are already confirming what many Harry Potter fans had hoped.

If you can’t wait for it to come to Game Pass and are considering purchasing your own copy, then why not check if the Deluxe Edition of Hogwarts Legacy is actually worth your money?
