Xbox Game Pass just had a banner year in 2019. It’s about to get a little bit better right at the start of 2020. Microsoft and Rockstar Games announced today that Grand Theft Auto V is now part of Xbox Game Pass.
Originally released on Xbox 360 and PS3, Grand Theft Auto V has found a second life on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. And now that it’s part of Xbox Game Pass, the game will have an even larger audience.
Despite its age, GTA V has remained a consistent presence both among online players and YouTubers. Just as recently as November 2019, GTA V was among the top five best-selling games on the PlayStation Store. That’s pretty impressive, considering it’s now going on seven years old.
GTA Online has played a big role in that staying power with regular new content added to the game in the form of officially-released DLC and fan-made mods. Over the years, fans have done everything from transform Trevor into the Joker to recreating the Teletubbies.
Microsoft recently revealed its upcoming Game Pass lineup, which now also includes The Witcher 3 just in time for the release of the Netflix show. And as if to put a cherry on top, right now you can get three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1. Ultimate includes both Xbox Game Pass for PC and console as well as Xbox Live Gold. It’s a good time to own an Xbox One!
