Bandai Namco has confirmed that it has "no plans" to bring its upcoming action-RPG Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass after rumours suggested it was coming to the service on day one.

Speaking on the Xbox Era podcast, GamesBeat reporter and insider Jeff Grubb (who is usually pretty accurate when it comes to this sort of thing) said he'd heard that Scarlet Nexus might join Xbox Game Pass on June 25th, the day Scarlet Nexus officially launches. However, in a statement given to VGC, Bandai Namco has denied this rumour. "We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time and are excited for its launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on June 25," a Bandai Namco spokesperson said.

Scarlet Nexus is a third-person action-RPG where you play as either Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall. The pair are armed with supernatural abilities, and, as part of the Other Suppression Force, they must use these special extra-sensory abilities to defend humanity from the Others.

Scarlet Nexus launches for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on June 25th.
