Microsoft Responds to Claims of Elden Ring, GTA 5 on Xbox Game Pass

Recent reports led some gamers to believe Xbox Game Pass could be getting two new big titles, and now Microsoft is weighing its response.

Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s subscription service that allows gamers to choose from hundreds of titles on their PC or Xbox, depending on the membership they choose. Game Pass is constantly adding new and interesting titles and many upcoming major releases such as: redfall and high in life, will be available from the first day of service. Recently, some gamers have spotted a couple of big titles that appear to be making their way into Xbox Game Pass.


Those titles were elden ring and grand theft auto 5, both of which would be major additions to the Xbox Game Pass roster. While some screenshots posted online looked like these titles were coming to Game Pass, there was another theory that instead of being available on the subscription service, elden ring and GTA5 would instead be playable via Xbox Cloud Gaming, which streams games to a user’s device. However, it appears that the titles may not be available on both services, following a statement from Microsoft.

Microsoft explained this to Eurogamer elden ring and GTA5 Showing games compatible with Game Pass and Cloud Gaming was an error. Microsoft said it was “aware of a bug that was incorrectly showing some titles as available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.” According to the company, a fix for this bug has been rolled out, and that elden ring and GTA5 Store pages have since been updated, removing mention of availability with Xbox Game Pass.

This will no doubt be disappointing to some who wanted to play these major releases at the Game Pass Ultimate price point instead of paying for the titles in full. elden ring and GTA5 also won’t be coming to Xbox Cloud Streaming, something fans were hoping for, given Microsoft’s previous statements about expanding the service. Some had even hoped that releasing these titles on both services could be part of Xbox’s Gamescom presentation. However, it seems the company has other plans for that show later in August.

Xbox recently revealed its plans for Gamescom 2022, and while fans might be disappointed, they won’t be getting it elden ring There are many other things to look forward to on Game Pass. Minecraft Legends, A Plague Tale: Requiemand Obsidian’s new title Buses are all scheduled to be shown later in August at the start of Gamescom.
