Victoria 3, the in-depth historical strategy title from the makers of Crusader Kings and "one of the most anticipated games in Paradox’s history," now has a release date of October 25th. [updated]Update: Paradox has reached out to inform us that Victoria 3 will not be joining PC Game Pass on release in October after all, or even coming to the Microsoft Store at launch. Previous communication such as the monthly update videos have included the PC Game Pass logo at the end (and still do as of this update), though this is no longer present in the most recent update video. As per an update on the Paradox forums, "the game will be a Steam exclusive at the release — after discussion with our partners it was decided that Victoria 3 won't be a part of Game Pass or Microsoft Store. Xbox fans of Paradox’s epic grand strategy titles can enjoy our games like Crusader Kings III, Stellaris, Shadowrun Trilogy, Hearts of Iron IV and more with Game Pass today and we look forward to sharing more details on our next partnership with Xbox in the future."
