After the massive success of 2014’s The Forest, Sons of the Forest is a highly anticipated title. The game features tons of new mechanics that make the game interesting and worth getting. As such, many Xbox players are wondering if Sons of the Forest is on Game Pass or not.

No, Sons of the Forest is not on Game Pass at launch. Since it is only on PC, it wouldn’t make much sense to place the game on Game Pass on day one.

If you are curious to know more about the game, continue reading to find out. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.

Sons of the Forest: Is It on Game Pass?

PC Game Pass Subscription

As mentioned, Sons of the Forest is unavailable on Game Pass at launch. While this might sound disappointing, the developers gave a good reason behind this move. Since it is a PC-only title, it wouldn’t make much sense to put it on Game Pass.

Usually, games on Game Pass – especially on launch – are Xbox exclusives like Hi-Fi Rush and Pentiment. However, the possibility is still there that Sons of the Forest will make its way to the Game Pass in the future. For now, you cannot play the game on Game Pass.

Just like The Callisto Protocol, the devs have slight hesitations about bringing the game on Xbox’s live service. That’s not to say that single-player games cannot be successful on the Game Pass, but as an independent studio, it doesn’t sound like the most profitable scenario.


That’s everything to know about is Sons of the Forest coming to Game Pass. While the game will not be on the service at launch, we might see it there later down the road. We can understand why the devs are hesitant to release this indie experience on the Game Pass for now.
