Can you play Hogwarts Legacy on Xbox Game Pass?

Short answer: No

Unfortunately, for Game Pass subscribers, Hogwarts Legacy is unavailable through the subscription service.

There haven’t been any talks or rumors about the game coming to Game Pass. Although, that’s definitely a possibility.

Hogwarts Legacy is a huge title from Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Studios. It’s rare for major games like this to release on Game Pass unless they’re from under Microsoft’s umbrella of studios.

But there’s still a chance for the game to come to Game Pass down the line. Warner Bros. will want to get as many people as possible to pay full price for the game after its initial release.

And after that, the company might strike a deal with Microsoft to bring the game to Game Pass.

But until that potentially happens, you’ll have to purchase Hogwarts Legacy the old-fashioned way.
