Xbox Game Pass subscribers received a heavy blow this week as GTA 5 exits service.
Grand Theft Auto 5 was retired from Xbox Game Pass on August 8.
While there is always a chance it will make a comeback later, subscribers will need to purchase the game directly to continue playing right now.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently available for £ 24.99 on Xbox One.

This is for the premium edition, which comes with the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack for GTA Online.
“The Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack is the fastest way for new GTA Online players to launch their criminal empires with the most exciting and popular content plus $ 1,000,000 in bonus cash to spend in GTA Online – all the content over 10,000,000 GTA $ if purchased separately. “
Other versions come with the same single player and online content, along with some extra in-game cash to spend on upgrades.
If the announcement of the release of GTA 5 Game Pass surprised you, also know that six other games are disappearing this weekend.
RETRO GAMING: More of your favorite childhood games may be making a comeback soon
This includes Ape Out and Crossing Souls on PC, as well as Darksiders Genesis, Don’t Starve, Final Fantasy VII, and Train Sim World 2020 across all platforms.
Of course, that’s not all bad news, as new games are joining the Game Pass lineup all the time.
This includes Sega’s upcoming strategy game, Humankind, which will be available on Game Pass for PC when it launches on August 17th.
“Humanity is a convergence of culture, history and values that allows you to create a civilization as unique as you are.
“You are going to rewrite the entire narrative of human history (… without pressure) from its humble beginnings in the Neolithic era, as you set out to leave the greatest mark on the world.”
The game features over 60 historical cultures from the ancient era to the modern era.
“Each of these cultures will bring a unique layer creating almost endless results. You will further personalize your civilization with each act you perform and each moral choice you make.
“Everything you do builds your fame, and the most famous player will win the game.”
Other upcoming Game Pass releases include Art of Rally and Hades, which will join the lineup later this week.
