is Diablo 4 Coming To Game Pass featured image

The game that has spanned generations is soon getting a fourth installment. Diablo 4 is the next long-awaited dungeon crawling, loot-grabbing, game from Blizzard. The highly anticipated action RPG heads to many different platforms in June 2023, but will Diablo 4 be on Game Pass? For anyone subscribed to Microsoft’s instant-access gaming service, this question is important.

Will we see Diablo 4 on Game Pass?

Sadly, Blizzard is not currently under the almost all-encompassing umbrella of Microsoft. The publisher does own an incredible swathe of studios, but its hasn’t gotten its hands on Blizzard — yet. The game will be released on Xbox; however, this does not guarantee that it will also show up on Game Pass.

This being said, Microsoft is currently in the process of acquiring Activision, but the finalization has not finalized. There are not many days left before the official release, but there is still a glimmer of hope for those subscribed to Game Pass. Microsoft does plan to gift all its loyal subscribers with the full library of Blizzards games, as announced in a blog post.

Anyone looking to play Diablo 4 on release may have to jump the gun and buy it before it becomes available on Game Pass. For anyone willing to wait, there is every chance it will someday be available via the service.

Blizzard Merger

If the merger between Activision Blizzard and Microsoft happens, a massive swathe of incredible games will become available. Call of Duty, StarCraft, Diablo 1 through 3 (maybe 4), and Overwatch will likely be added to the already monstrous library of Game Pass. The value of the package is already, in my opinion, fantastic, and it’s only looking to become better. So, is Diablo 4 coming to Game Pass? Probably not on day one, but as the unstoppable buying power of Microsoft rolls on, it probably will be soon.

Diablo GM Rod Furguson has mentioned in a tweet that Diablo 4 won’t be immediately ported to Game Pass. Just because it isn’t out on release, doesn’t mean it won’t be after the merger though. Can you wait that long, or will you be pre-ordering? Don’t forget, the Open Beta is coming soon.
