Not the first time GTA 5 is leaving Xbox Game Pass
To recall, this is not the first time GTA 5 is leaving the Xbox Game Pass service. The game made a return to the service on April 8, 2021. This hints that the game might make a comeback. Also Read - Sony PlayStation Showcase 2021: God of War Ragnarok, Marvel's Spider-Man 2, 16 other games revealed
The only thing that might affect some, would be that the game via the Xbox Cloud Gaming service could be played on Android devices too, which increased the accessibility for players. Players who purchase the game via the Game Pass would still be able to take advantage of this feature. However, if the Game Pass expires, they won’t be able to play games on the service unless they resubscribe or buy the game.
If you are sad that GTA 5 is leaving the service, there will be a lot of new games being added to the service including Hades and much more.
As of now, there is no definitive date for GTA 5’s exit from the Xbox Game Pass service. However, we expect the game to make its exit in roughly two weeks.
