South Korean action game Gungrave Gore may be coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one, according to an Xbox newsletter.
As reported by numerous Twitter users across Europe, an email detailing upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles lists Gungrave Gore, which is due to be published by Prime Matter on November 22.
The game, developed by Gangnam-based studio Iggymob, is the third in the Gungrave series, and the first new entry in 18 years.
The game has never been officially confirmed for Game Pass, making this the first time it has been associated with the subscription service.
Given that the ‘announcement’ has only appeared in a European Game Pass email newsletter so far, there’s a chance it may be an error, at least until a more definitive announcement is made by Xbox.
Gungrave Gore is the sequel to Gungrave and Gungrave: Overdose, which released on the PS2 in 2002 and 2004 respectively.
The thid-person action series follows an undead anti-hero gunslinger called Beyond the Grave. In Gungrave Gore, Grave has to rid the world of the drug SEED and defeat the Raven Clan, its suppliers.
If the announcement turns out to be legitimate, this would be the latest example of a multi-format game coming to Xbox Game Pass on its day of release.
During Gamescom last week, it was revealed that the upcoming Pinocchio-inspired souls-like Lies of P will also be a day one Game Pass title.
Earlier this month it emerged that Microsoft had claimed that Sony pays developers for “blocking rights” in return for them agreeing not to put their content on Xbox Game Pass.
As part of a document sent to Brazil’s Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) to justify its proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the Xbox firm claimed that Sony actively attempts to “inhibit growth” of Game Pass by trying to prevent content appearing on it.
