GTA 5 returns to Xbox Game Pass

After a brief stint on Xbox Game Pass early last year, Grand Theft Auto 5 is returning to Microsoft’s subscription service after being replaced by another of Rockstar’s blockbuster titles, Red Dead Redemption 2, and will be available on consoles and the cloud starting tomorrow. available on the platform.

Rockstar Games is clearly keen to get GTA 5 and Online into the hands of as many players as possible, likely due to the insane profitability of “recurring spending opportunities,” as Take-Two likes to call them microtransactions. That’s probably what prompted the company to partner with Epic and give away GTA 5 for free on the Epic Games Store last year.

A new wave of Game Pass games was recently announced on Xbox Wire and will launch on April 8th, which means you just have to wait until tomorrow as a Game Pass subscriber to enter the world of Los Santos and Blaine County if you haven’t already .

GTA 5 will join Zombie Army 4: Dead War, Disneyland Adventures and Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure tomorrow. A number of other games join the lineup later this month, including NHL and Pathway on April 12, Rain on your Parade on April 15, and finally MLB The Show 21 on April 20.

The last one is a bit interesting because it was developed by PlayStation Studios and published by Sony, Microsoft’s main gaming rival. The fact that the game is available through Game Pass is interesting because to be able to play the game on a PlayStation console at launch, you’ll have to pay the full AAA MSRP of $60.
