Xbox Game Pass is, without a doubt, one of the best deals in gaming and if you're a fan of GTA 5 you might be interested to know about whether Grand Theft Auto V is coming back to the service.

LATEST - GTA 5 Is Back, Baby!

You read that right! It's been a long time, but GTA 5 is returning to Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate from April 8th!

It is joined by Zombie Army 4: Dead War, Disneyland Adventures and Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure. So, there's plenty to do over the next few days!


Xbox Touch Controls for Cloud Gaming with Game Pass are also currently in Beta testing so who knows, you might be able to play GTA 5 on your mobile phone before too long!

Will GTA V Come Back To Game Pass?

In January 2020, the hugely popular GTA V was added to Xbox Game Pass.

The game remained on the service until May 2020 before it was replaced by Red Dead Redemption 2, which is no longer on Game Pass.

VARIETY: Xbox Game Pass offers hundreds of games for one subscription fee

Games are added every month, while other games rotate out as well, always giving players something new to play each month.

This month will see these games come to Xbox Game Pass,

  • Wolfenstein Youngblood
  • Jurassic World Evolution
  • Stealth Inch 2
  • Project Winter
  • The Falconeer
  • Final Fantasy XII
  • Ghost of a Tale

This list highlights the variety of games we see on the service each month, from some of gaming's biggest IPs to much smaller and lesser-known titles.

GTA V could come back at any time, as could any game, but as of right now there appears to be no suggestion that it will be coming back.

Especially with the upcoming next-generation port of the game, due for release in 2021.

Microsoft, and Take-Two, will be looking for players to purchase the next-gen version of the game, so it is unlikely that we will see the game come back to the service any time soon, although not completely out of the question.
