Apparently Control isn’t coming to Xbox Game Pass, according to publisher 505 Games.
According to 505 Games, the information about Control shared by Xbox boss Phil Spencer “is incorrect.”
“We have no news or announcements regarding Xbox Game Pass at this time,” said the company in a statement sent to VG247.
Must be a case of wires being crossed as Microsoft also released the following statement:
“We’re aware that “Control” was mentioned as coming to the Xbox Game Pass library and can confirm this was in error. While we are always updating the library and looking for new ways to provide our members with value and choice in their games, we do not have plans to bring “Control” to the library at this time.”
