Neon White, the first-person shooter and puzzle-platforming game from developer Angel Matrix, released for PS4 and PS5 last December after spending some time as exclusives to Nintendo Switch and PC. It looks like Xbox players will finally get to play the acclaimed game soon as it has now been rated for Xbox consoles.
A recent ESRB rating hinted at Neon White arriving on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S in the near future, though no date has officially been announced yet by Microsoft. Additionally, popular leaker Nick from XboxEra previously stated that the game would be coming to Xbox Game Pass at some point. The developer quickly shot down this rumour, stating that nothing was confirmed yet. That might all change soon.

It makes sense that Neon White would eventually make its way to Xbox Game Pass. The game originally launched in June 2022 so enough time has passed for Microsoft to potentially sweep up a Game Pass deal. While it doesn’t appear on the PlayStation Plus Extra or Deluxe libraries, Neon White is currently available to purchase on PS4 and PS5.
Neon White received generally positive reviews at launch with many praising its stylish presentation, fast-paced action and parkour elements that made it stand out from other first-person shooter games. The game was nominated for Best Indie Game, Best Debut Indie Game and Best Action Game at The Game Awards 2022.
The game’s description on Steam reads:
“Neon White is a lightning fast first-person action game about exterminating demons in Heaven. You are White, an assassin handpicked from Hell to compete with other demon slayers for a chance to live permanently in Heaven. The other assassins seem familiar, though…“
As with all rumours, take this with a pinch of salt for now until we get confirmation from Microsoft. If it’s already listed by the ESRB, then we can surely expect the announcement to happen sooner rather than later.
