Immortals of Aveum, the recent first-person magic shooter, is likely coming to Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus at some point.

"This was a painfully difficult but necessary decision that was not made lightly; nevertheless, we have to make this adjustment now that Immortals of Aveum has shipped".
In the interview with Windows Central, Robbins was asked whether a release on subscription services would have helped the game's launch. Although the CEO didn't directly say that launching Immortals of Aveum on the services would have benefited the game's launch, he did say that he's currently in talks with both Sony and Microsoft to get the game on PS Plus and Game Pass.
"Yes, we are talking to them about getting the game onto both of those services", the CEO said. "We don't have a date yet, I'm pretty sure it's gonna happen, though."
