Have you heard of Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy game, “Victoria 3“? Last year, Paradox Interactive announced plans to release the game on Xbox Game Pass for PC, although it did not give an official date.
Now, however, it appears that these plans may not come to fruition, as Paradox has announced that, after discussions with its partners, it will not move forward with its original plan to launch on Xbox Game Pass.
This means it will be exclusive to Steam, and Paradox stresses that they look forward to working with Xbox in the future.
The game will be a Steam exclusive upon release. After discussions with our partners, it has been decided that Victoria 3 will not be included in Game Pass or the Microsoft Store. Xbox fans of Paradox’s epic grand strategy titles can enjoy our games such as Crusader Kings III, Stellaris, Shadowrun Trilogy, and Hearts of Iron IV on Game Pass starting today and in the future when we announce our next; we look forward to sharing more details about our upcoming partnership with Xbox.
