Will Tekken 8 be on Xbox Game Pass?

At this moment in time, Tekken 8 will not be punching and kicking its way to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service.

As of now, there’s no official announcement from Bandai Namco about Tekken 8 coming to Xbox Game Pass. Usually by now, through trailers and even subtle hints on the game’s Xbox store page, we’d have seen indicators that this was a reality.

So, as for right now, we need to go on the basis that Tekken 8 is only available as a full-price, standalone release for players.

But what about the future? Even though there’s no current plan to bring Tekken 8 to Xbox Game Pass, it’s crucial to remember that gaming is a landscape of constant change and evolution. Microsoft has shown its commitment to expanding the Xbox Game Pass library, continuously adding new titles and blockbuster hits. So, while Tekken 8 may not be making its way to the subscription service at this moment, there’s always a possibility of it happening later on down the line.

If this does happen, we’ll be the first to update this guide and let you know, so keep checking back!
