Will MLB The Show 22 be on Xbox Game Pass?


As we all know, MLB The Show 22 is scheduled to arrive on April 5 and features one of professional baseball’s biggest superstars on the cover: Shohei Ohtani.

We also know that the game will be released for Nintendo Switch for the first time in MLB The Show history, alongside PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

However, since this is the first entry in the series to be released on both Xbox systems, it has led numerous fans to wonder if it will be in the Xbox Game Pass catalog.

In this guide, we’ll take a look at whether MLB The Show 22 will be on Xbox Games Pass, as well as other news about the upcoming release.

Xbox Game Pass gives gamers exclusive access to over 200 games for a small monthly fee. The service features some of the biggest titles in video games, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Mortal Kombat, and Hitman Trilogy, to name a few.

Will MLB The Show 22 be on Xbox Game Pass?

As revealed by Xbox Wire, MLB The Show 22 will launch on Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on the day one launch date of the game, April 5, 2022..

MLB The Show 22 stands as the second game in the series to come to Xbox and the second to launch on Xbox Game Pass. The first title, MLB The Show 21, saw huge success a year ago after its release in April 2021 and has remained on Game Pass ever since.

Although Sony San Diego Studio developed MLB The Show, MLB (not Sony) publishes MLB The Show on Xbox. This means that since MLB is in charge of publishing the game outside of PlayStation, they are free to make other deals with major platforms (like Xbox and Nintendo, for example).

The full standard edition of the game will be available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, and players on both systems will benefit from MLB The Show’s cross-play and cross-progression features. Both are functional for the Xbox system and PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.

However, even if you don’t have an Xbox console, you’ll still be able to get in on the action through Xbox Cloud Gaming, which allows gamers to stream gameplay from compatible smartphones and tablets.

So, fans of MLB The Show can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass to take advantage of the upcoming release.
