Microsoft has made a surprise announcement and added Grand Theft Auto V to Xbox Game Pass. GTA V can be downloaded and played now if you have an active subscription.
Microsoft dropped the news of GTA V coming to Xbox Game Pass as part of the January 2020 games lineup update. It is the only game that has been confirmed to launch later in January but it seems to be a rather major addition. GTA V is still quite popular all over the world and continues to chart in top-selling games on every platform.
Rockstar Games has slashed the price of the game a lot and it can be bough as low as $9.99 USD in sales but this doesn’t reduce the impact of this new addition for Xbox Game Pass. They revealed this announcement in a post made by the official social media account.
GTA V has sold through more than 100 million copies worldwide also becoming one of the best selling games in the series. It is quite popular even today and despite launching first in 2013 and then later getting remastered for PS4 and Xbox One followed by a PC release in 2014, it still has a fairly active userbase thanks to the popularity of GTA Online.
Rockstar Games is continuing to update GTA Online with new free content. They have recently released a large Casino Heist update for GTA Online adding tons of new content.
