Microsoft brought its Xbox Game Pass subscription service to both Xbox consoles and Windows 10 PCs, with the goal of providing top games for the users to enjoy. As Microsoft itself claims, Xbox Game Pass offers over 100 high-quality games for the above-mentioned platforms.
In less than two weeks, another highly-rated game is coming to Xbox Game Pass: Red Dead Redemption 2. While this can only be good news since the game is a great hit, winning several awards in 2018 (for best performance, audio design, soundtrack and narrative), the addition comes at a huge price.
GTA 5 gets removed from Xbox Game Pass
This could easily be the surprise of the year for the gaming world. GTA 5 is the best selling game of all time, and there’s no wonder why: it has pretty much anything a gamer willing to play open-world titles could want. From car chasing, drug dealers, thieves, bank robbers, killers, destroying vehicles, driving a tank, flying a jet, getting a pet or even becoming one, GTA 5 is simply a fabulous game. Just what on Earth is Microsoft thinking?
On the other hand, the arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox Game Pass will surely delight a lot of people. Developed and published by Rockstar Games last year in December, RDR 2 has a compelling story and fun gameplay. As the official description from Steam says:
Winner of over 175 Game of the Year Awards and recipient of over 250 perfect scores, RDR2 is the epic tale of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the infamous Van der Linde gang, on the run across America at the dawn of the modern age. Also includes access to the shared living world of Red Dead Online.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available for the usual platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC), and featuring support for the next-generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X is also highly-probable.
