Two expansions have followed Remnant since its release in 2019, including Swamps of Corsus and Subject 2923. A prequel, Chronos: Before the Ashes, was released in 2020.
May 13 also marks the launch date of Remnant on Xbox Game Pass on PC, following its debut on the console version of Game Pass previously. Other new additions to Xbox Game Pass on May 13 include Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Just Cause 4 Reloaded, Psychonauts, and Red Dead Online.

In GameSpot's Remnant: From the Ashes review, Alessandro Barbosa wrote, "Confusing accurately describes Remnant: From the Ashes a lot of the time, especially when its combination of established ideas doesn't mesh. But for the most part, the experiment is a success, resulting in deeply satisfying combat against creative and challenging enemies."
Remnant was developed by Gunfire Games, the studio made up of developers who worked on the Darksiders franchise, among others.
