Developed by the team that brought us Dishonored, Deathloop was announced by Arkane Studios and Bethesda in 2020. However, due to a pre-existing deal prior to Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, Deathloop was a console exclusive for PS5.
Is the end neigh?
At the time of its announcement, we had no idea how long this timed-exclusive deal would last. Thankfully, as reported by Pure Xbox, that timed-exclusive deal may be on the verge of coming to an end.
At the end of the Deathloop trailer revealed at State of Play last summer, it was confirmed that the game would remain exclusive for at least a year. However, considering that Deathloop launched on PS5 as well as PC on September 14th, 2021, that end is fast approaching.
So, when could Deathloop come to Xbox?
If that one-year exclusivity period remains true, it means that Deathloop could finally release for Xbox Series X|S next month on September 14th, 2022.
In our review of Deathloop, we said: “Arkane once again goes all-in with the dedication to its premise, building an entire zoo of possibilities for creative murder expression and sneaky sandbox antics. I haven’t seen anything quite like it in a long time.”
Could Deathloop 2 be coming?
In related Deathloop news, the voice actor of its main protagonist, Jason E. Kelly teased that a sequel to Arkane Studios’ time-bending shooter could be on the way.
