Xbox revealed the first wave of Xbox Game Pass games for July 2023 this week with a household name on the list: Grand Theft Auto 5. GTA, which has come and gone from Xbox Game Pass more than once in the past, has now been added back to the subscription service starting July 5, where it will be available on consoles and through cloud gaming, but is not part of the PC Game Pass collection.
Other games are coming to that platform though, with six additional games beyond GTA V coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next week or so.
In the past, Grand Theft Auto 5 was available on Xbox Game Pass for several months, but was then removed from the game catalog in 2020. It was later brought back the following year, but was removed again after being available for around four months. .
Along with GTA V this month, several more games will be added to Xbox Game Pass, two of which are day one releases. More details on the games we’ll see added, as well as when they’ll arrive and the platforms they’ll be playable on, can be found below:
- Grand Theft Auto V
