Balatro: Is it Coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Balatro is the next runaway indie hit, so naturally, players want to know if they can try it for free on Xbox Game Pass. Here’s what you need to know.

Balatro is a poker roguelike game that has absolutely exploded in popularity since its release on February 20, 2024. Since then, players on all platforms, including Xbox, have been enjoying it. However, there are still those who aren’t willing to commit the low cost to entry and are wondering if it’s coming to Xbox Game Pass. Below, we explain if Balatro will grace the subscription service any time soon.

Is Balatro Coming to Xbox Game Pass?

No, Balatro isn’t coming to Xbox Game Pass any time soon. While the game is currently available on Xbox, there have been no official announcements of it appearing on the subscription service. If you want to play Balatro on Xbox, you’ll need to purchase it from the store. It only costs US$14.99/¬£12.79.

Of course, it is possible that Balatro will eventually come to Game Pass. For starters, it’s already on Xbox, meaning that no development time needs to be spent porting the game. However, the developer has not announced that this will happen. Considering its huge success, it’s likely it won’t happen any time soon.
