Is Death Must Die on consoles and Game Pass? PS5, Xbox, and Switch, explained

But I want to kill Death now!

Death Must Die is a fantastic entry in the Bullet Heaven genre and takes undeniable inspiration from Hades. The issue is that it’s not available on every platform. With this in mind, let me answer: Is Death Must Die on consoles and Game Pass?

Is Death Must Die available on Switch, Xbox or PS5?

At the time of writing, Death Must Die is only available on PC. More specifically, you can only purchase the game on Steam or the Humble Bundle store. Several other sites list Death Must Die for sale, but these are mostly Key Sellers, and you’ll end up with the Steam version regardless.

Is Death Must Die on Xbox Game Pass?

As Death Must Die is PC Exclusive, it’s unavailable on Game Pass on Xbox or PC. That said, it’s very likely that the game will be coming to Xbox or Game Pass in the near future. Death Must Die was briefly shown in the Triple-I Initiative showcase on April 10, 2024.

This montage showed several upcoming indie titles, including Death Must Die, coming to Xbox platforms. Other titles include heavy hitters like Cat Quest III and Wizard of Legend 2.

Will Death Must Die come to all consoles?

We can only speculate at this point, but I imagine Death Must Die will come to all platforms when the title leaves Early Access. At the time of writing, Death Must Die is playable but unfinished. Act II was added to the game on April 20, 2024, and there’s no word on how many Acts will be present in the finished release.

Some titles go through an early access phase cross-platform, but it can lead to issues with hotfixes and updates. Because of this, many developers wait until their games are finished before releasing them on consoles. 

Death Must Die puts a fun spin on the Bullet Heaven genre popularized by Vampire Survivors. I know the waiting game is frustrating, but hopefully, console players won’t be kept in the dark for long concerning release dates.
