Unlike other horror titles like Dead by Daylight and The Medium, Resident Evil 4 Remake will not be available on Game Pass. It's been heavily pushed in PlayStation's marketing and was featured in February's State of Play alongside Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice LeagueAdditionally, Capcom does not have a history of supporting Xbox Game Pass with its titles on day one. 

Capcom currently shares no plans for Resident Evil 4 Remake on Game Pass. However, it has provided its games on the service before, after their launches. At the time of writing, you can check out Monster Hunter Rise on Xbox Game Pass. Capcom has also made Devil May Cry 5 available in the past for Microsoft's subscribers as well. There's a possibility that Resident Evil 4 Remake would find its way on Xbox Game Pass at some point in time, but it isn't confirmed right now.

Resident Evil 4 Remake missing Xbox Game Pass is a huge bummer, but there are some stellar horror games on the service you shouldn't miss. 

The closest you'll get to a Resident Evil game on Game Pass is The Evil Within series. They are entertaining third-person horror titles that will test your wits and have some over-the-top horror situations that fans of the original Resident Evil 4 would love. In fact, The Evil Within's director is the same as RE4's! 

Another game you should check out, in place of Resident Evil 4 Remake, is the original Dead Space trilogy. While the remake of Dead Space hasn't made its way to Game Pass yet, the original sci-fi horror games (especially the first two) are still suspenseful and will keep you on your toes from start to finish.
