Is Madden 22 on Xbox Game Pass?

Madden 22 has only been out for a little over a month, but players are already wondering when the game will land on Xbox Game Pass.

It would definitely come as part of EA Play, as other EA titles have, and we've got everything you need to know about Madden 22 and Xbox Game Pass.

Is Madden 22 on Xbox Game Pass?

Here's the bad news. No, Madden 22 is not on Xbox Game Pass as of right now, and we don't have a confirmed date to expect its arrival.

Unlike MLB The Show 21, which seemed to break the mold by going to Xbox Game Pass on Day One, we're seeing a more traditional approach from Madden 22.

WAITING GAME: Players will have to wait and see when it arrives on Game Pass

While there is still a 10-hour EA Play Trial available for Madden 22 if anyone hasn't already used that, the full game isn't available through the service.

If you're not ready to buy and have already gone through the Trial time, keep an eye out for free weekends, as EA did one of those during the initial NFL Kickoff and made the game free-to-play through several days.

That could give players a chance to try it out a bit more if they're not yet ready to make the leap of purchasing.

When will Madden 22 be on Xbox Game Pass?

Madden 21 didn't land on Xbox Game Pass via EA Play until about six months after the title was released, and right now all indications are the same for Madden 22.

With Madden 21 hitting Xbox Game Pass on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, just over six months after the title's August 28, 2020 release date, we've got a good idea of when Madden 22 could arrive.

As of now, the most likely release date for Madden 22 on Xbox Game Pass is Tuesday, March 1, 2021, which aligns with the date when we saw Madden 21 arrive.

GO BACK TO 21: You can always jump back to last year's Madden

Madden 21 is still available on Xbox Game Pass, so players who need a football fix do have the option of playing last year's game, which some would argue isn't drastically different from what was released this year.

There's no indication as to when Madden 21 might leave Xbox Game Pass through EA Play, but it's unlikely to be any time soon, as Madden 19 is also still available through EA Play on Xbox Game Pass.
