Is Dead Island 2 on Xbox Game Pass?

Unfortunately, Dead Island 2 is not available on Xbox Game Pass at launch, so Xbox users will have to purchase a copy of the game in order to play it. However, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold is needed to play online multiplayer on consoles.

This may be disappointing to players that were hoping to pick up the zombie survival title through their Xbox Game Pass subscription. However, that doesn’t mean that Dead Island 2 will never be on Microsoft’s subscription service.

Even though Dead Island 2 is not available on Xbox Game Pass at launch, it’s entirely possible that it could be added to the subscription service at some point in the future as new games are added every month.

The first Dead Island was previously added to Xbox Game Pass, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the sequel also made its way to Microsoft’s subscription service. However, the developers have yet to officially announce any plans regarding this.
