Are you excited to play Hot Wheels™ Unleashed Game Of The Year Edition? If the answer is yes, and you don't want to pay $50 to play it now, then I have some disappointing news. Hot Wheels™ Unleashed is not yet coming to Xbox Game Pass. It was announced earlier this week that Hot Wheels™ Unleashed WAS coming to Xbox Game Pass. An update was posted yesterday stating, "Hot Wheels™ Unleashed – Game of the Year Edition is no longer coming on December 15, 2022 as previously announced. We will update you with a new date when we have more information to share." So what's the deal? Can Game Pass subscribers play this game any time soon? Let's figure it out.
Hot Wheels™ Unleashed Was Coming To Game Pass
It was exciting news when Xbox announced that Hot Wheels™ Unleashed Game of the Year Edition would join Xbox Game Pass on December 15. This game is, of course, a fan favorite, and many racing and Hot Wheels™ fans looked forward to adding it to their Game Pass playlist. Players that didn't want to dish out $50 for the game had a chance to try it out with their Game Pass subscription. What happened next was a lot less exciting.
Then Hot Wheels™ Unleashed Wasn't Coming To Game Pass
It's been reported that Hot Wheels™ Unleashed, the game that was supposed to be coming to Game Pass, will not be released after all. This is disappointing news, as many players were looking forward to playing the game. However, there are still plenty of other great games on Game Pass, so don't let this setback stop you from enjoying the platform. In the meantime, check out the other great games on Xbox Game Pass, like the Forza Horizon 5's Hot Wheel Expansion. The expansion isn't free, but the Forza base game is available on Game Pass.
What's The Update With Hot Wheels™ Unleashed?
So far, the game has not been released onto the Xbox Game Pass and is no longer coming on December 15, 2022. The game features more than 60 vehicles, including iconic Hot Wheels™ cars from past and present seasons. It's an online multiplayer game that supports up to eight players. For the time being, a mysterious force has taken away the rights to release Hot Wheel on Xbox Game Pass. Lame.
When Can We Expect Xbox Game Pass To Add Hot Wheels™ Unleashed?
Xbox Game Pass is impressive, and I'm not the only one thinking so (29 million subscribers must agree). The December 15 release appears to be off the tables, but the updated message stated, "we will update with a new date." That's a positive remark. That makes me think there is an expected release to Game Pass some time in the (near) future.
What Is Hot Wheels™ Unleased?
