Is Sons of the Forest coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Currently, Sons of the Forest has not been confirmed to arrive on Xbox Game Pass and is only available on PC through Steam. This may be disappointing to Game Pass members who hoped to pick up the game through their membership.

This isn’t too surprising as the original, The Forest, did not release on the Xbox console and was initially available on PC before later being added to the PlayStation 4. So, it’s possible that Sons of the Forest may never arrive on Game Pass.
