Microsoft responds to Elden Ring, GTA 5 on Xbox Game Pass

Depending on their membership, customers may pick from hundreds of games on either their PC or Xbox via Xbox Game Pass, a subscription service from Microsoft.

Many anticipated significant releases, like Redfall and High on Life, will be accessible on Game Pass from the start. Game Pass is constantly introducing new and intriguing games.

A few big games that looked to be coming to Xbox Game Pass have recently been discovered by several players.

Elden Ring and Grand Theft Auto 5 were those games, and both would be significant additions to Xbox Game Pass.

Elden Ring and GTA 5 seemed to be heading to Game Pass in some online images, but there was also the rumor that they would be playable through Xbox Cloud Gaming, which streams games to a user’s device, rather than the subscription service.

Following a statement from Microsoft, the games may not be coming to either service.

Microsoft admitted that Elden Ring and GTA 5 showing up as compatible with Game Pass and Cloud Gaming was a problem in an interview with Eurogamer.

“Aware of an issue that wrongly advertised certain games as accessible with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate,” Microsoft said.

The Elden Ring and GTA 5 shop sites have subsequently been modified, deleting mention of availability with Xbox Game Pass. The business claims that a remedy for this error has been released.

Some people will surely find this frustrating since they had hoped to enjoy these important releases for the cost of Game Pass Ultimate rather than purchasing the games outright.

Fans had anticipated that Elden Ring and GTA 5 would be included in Xbox Cloud Streaming in light of Microsoft’s prior announcements on the service’s expansion.

Some others had even anticipated that Xbox’s Gamescom presentation would include the launch of these games on either service. However, it seems like the firm has other plans for that exhibition later in August.

While gamers may be sad that Elden Ring won’t be available on Game Pass, Xbox just disclosed their plans for Gamescom 2022, and there are many other exciting things to look forward to.

The beginning of Gamescom is scheduled for later in August when Obsidian’s new game Pentiment, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Minecraft Legends will all be unveiled.
