Supersleuths of the internet unite. Eagle eyed Reddit user u/statenotcity may have unearthed something spectacular. To all and sundry, it seems as though Xbox has let slip a belter in its latest Xbox Cloud Gaming trailer. The trailer, which aired on the 17th of November, features a split second clip of CD Projeckt RED’s most recent, most ambitious, and most notorious title. That’s right, it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Games Pass.
The trailer which launched to celebrate the launch of Xbox Cloud Gaming on consoles demos a brief clip of what seems to be Cyberpunk protagonist V shooting desperately into a hoard of cybernetic foes. You can check out the original post below.

Of course, Xbox hasn’t come out with it yet in any official capacity. But it would certainly be a little strange to feature a game that wasn’t coming to the service, wouldn’t it? A deeper dive into the comments of other reditors following the initial post seems only to bolster the certainty.
Perhaps the most commanding evidence was given by u/dalthdan who says “This frame was used in one of the Cyberpunk 2077 trailers, so yes. I can assure you OP, it is from Cyberpunk 2077”. They go on to share a link of the official Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, complete with the timestamp of 3:04. It is, unmistakably, the same trailer. Don’t belive us? Check it out for yourself.
If that’s not the same game then I’ll…it’s the same game.
Further, Reditor u/TemptedTemplar confirms that the clip is from Cyberpunk 2077’s Mission 14 – Life During Wartime. This seems to be the final confirmation needed by the Reditt hive mind, with unanimous opinion favouring the original speculation. Which is, in our opinion fantastic news.
Of course, Cyberpunk has been through the mill a bit this last year. The launch was an absolute disaster which fans of the developer will have followed with increasing disappointment. But CD Projekt RED have not been idle, busy beavering away on those pesky bugs and adding content with the sort of dedication we wish it’d invested before the game released.
Nevertheless, if Cyberpunk really is coming to Games Pass then any stubborn hold-out (which includes me, by the way) will final be able to get their hands on the game for the best price going. Absolutely free.
