Grand Theft Auto 5 will return to Xbox Game Pass in April, after previously being available between January and May 2020. This time, a friend comes along in the form of cloud support, so players can experience the game on their Android phone or tablet of choice, provided they are a subscriber to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Grand Theft Auto 5 will be reintroduced on Xbox Game Pass on April 8 for console and cloud gaming specifically and headlines a busy month ahead for the gaming subscription service. Again, PC players will, unfortunately, have to look elsewhere if they want to play GTA 5 soon.
Other titles added in April include, oddly enough, Sony’s MLB The Show 21 (a day one release on Xbox Game Pass), the charming indie game Rain On Your Parade, and NHL 21 via EA Play among others. Most of the month’s additions will also have support for cloud gaming, except for NHL 21 and the PC exclusive Pathway.
Grand Theft Auto 5 might also be a turning point for cloud gaming on Xbox Game Pass. This is especially true for the still wildly popular GTA Online, where a large number of players could put a lot of pressure on Microsoft’s servers.
If Grand Theft Auto 5’s addition to Xbox’s cloud gaming service proves successful, that in turn could encourage Rockstar to reintroduce Red Dead Redemption 2 on Game Pass, itself hopefully experimenting with cloud support along with its online counterpart Red Dead Online.
We also hope that playing GTA 5 via the cloud will benefit from 1080p picture quality, a feature Microsoft tested for Xbox Game Pass last month. Currently, cloud gaming via Game Pass is limited to only 720p resolution. This isn’t a big deal on smaller screens, but you’ll definitely notice a drop in image quality if you’re playing on anything larger than a smartphone or tablet.
