Just saw this on the Store home page, assuming this was supposed to be announced on Inside Xbox tomorrow?

Edit: Also listed on the games web page as being included in Game Pass.



Seeing as Rocket League was being teased for Inside Xbox I guess this confirms that’s the announcement. I’m a bit dissapointed as I was really hoping it was the X Enhanced patch releasing.

Holy shit, huge. We were wondering the other day why Rocket League popped up in the "continue playing" section of Game Pass, guess this is why. PUBG next?

When I saw this earlier today I thought it’d be an announcement that the X Enhanced patch is finally out. Hopefully they will announce that as well

If gamepass continues to boost sales of 3rd party games in ways it did for SOT, SOD2 I can't imagine how the portfolio will look like in a few years. Very exciting to say the least.

Microsoft, you're not meant to leak your own secret announcements!

Still though, I'll take it!

Funny, I just reinstalled it on PS4.

So of course I don't care, because there will be no crossplay. I would play it on X if I could bring my profile.

Could MS make We Hapy Few a game pass launch title? or they wouldn't bother with gearbox?

Fantastic for Rocket League. It'll be a perfect Game Pass game. Hoping for X Enhancement soon!

Pretty crazy they didn't bother upgrading it yet for such a big hitter, pro version looks amazing compared to the original.
They are still a pretty small team. They have done a lot of work on the Switch version since launch(it was ported by another dev) and this summer has some huge updates where they overhaul the XP system, account system adding crossplay parties and rocket pass. I'm guess the enhanced patch needed to be put in the backburner till these are all done.

Wow, that's pretty huge. RL already has a massive install base on Xbox despite never being free and releasing a year later. Wonder what the numbers will look like after it hits XGP.
