    Is it possible to make a Game Launcher/Patcher using WPF or .NET MAUI?
    If so, please link me to resources that I need to learn in order to achieve this.
    Also, will it work if I make GitHub Releases as the server where the Game Patcher downloads its updates?

    That's pretty complicated to do. I'd recommend to leverage the updaters that each store platform (Steam, Google Store, etc...) gives you when you publish on them.
