Is Rust on Game Pass? Answered

is rust on game pass

Rust feels like it has been around forever, but in actuality, it’s only been fully released on PC back in 2018 after existing in early access back in December 2018. Console fans have had to wait all the way until May 2021 before they got their chance to experience Rust’s survival experience. If you’re here, you’re likely wondering if Rust is on Game Pass then? Not only is it on PC, but it’s on Xbox now too, so there’s always a chance these days right? Here’s what you need to know.

Is Rust on Game Pass

Let’s cut right to the chase, shall we? Rust, currently at the time of this writing, is not available to download from Xbox Game Pass on PC or just regular ol’ Game Pass.

This could change in either the near or far future. It’s very hard to predict what games do come to Xbox, only that Microsoft is trying to aggressively expand the service and you can regularly expect good games to trickle onto the service.

If we were to offer up a guess, generally if a game isn’t added to Game Pass right when it comes out, if it’s a paid game, it may be a few months or more before it does eventually get added. It could be that the developers are waiting to get some sales first before joining Game Pass once the sales start to slow.

This is just speculation, though, and we have no idea when or if Rust will ever come to Game Pass. That’s all you need to know for now. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but hopefully you got your answer and you can move on with your life. Just keep a close eye on the Game Pass Twitter to see if Rust ever gets added. If it does, we’ll be sure to update this post.
