- Today is the last day to play Grand Theft Auto 5 on Xbox Game Pass, so make sure to play it while you can.
- If you want to own the game, you can buy it at a discounted rate before it leaves Game Pass.
- Grand Theft Auto 5 is highly rated and popular, so its departure from Game Pass is disappointing.
Today is the last day that Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 with their subscription. Grand Theft Auto 5 has been a part of the Xbox Game Pass lineup on multiple occasions, but it never stays available for too long. The same can be said about GTA 5‘s latest visit, as Rockstar’s critically-acclaimed open world crime game was only a part of Xbox Game Pass for about six months.
Grand Theft Auto 5 joined Xbox Game Pass last summer, but longtime subscribers already knew that it was unlikely to stay part of the service for a full calendar year, which is the standard for other games. Sure enough, Grand Theft Auto 5 was added to the Xbox Game Pass Leaving Soon section this past December, and then it was officially confirmed that its last day would be Friday, January 5.
Xbox Game Pass Game Getting Full Release on January 25
A hectic Xbox Game Pass title that’s been part of Microsoft’s subscription service since late 2022 is finally leaving early access this month.
Today is the last day that Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available through Xbox Game Pass, so anyone interested in playing the game through their subscription should make sure to do so while they still can. One day is certainly not enough time to complete Grand Theft Auto 5, so anyone that wants to buy the game for keeps can do so at a discounted rate while it’s still on Game Pass. There are four versions of GTA 5 to choose from, including some that include Shark Cards so players have some extra money to spend in Grand Theft Auto Online. Keep in mind that the discounted prices for GTA 5 and its Shark Card bundles will only be available while the game is still on Game Pass, so those interested have only a day to take advantage of the lower prices.

- Grand Theft Auto 5: Premium Edition & Whale Shark Card Bundle – $23.99
- Grand Theft Auto 5: Premium Edition & Megalodon Shark Card Bundle – $35.99
With Grand Theft Auto 5 being one of the best-selling video games ever made, it’s safe to say that there are many who already own it and won’t be stressed about it leaving Game Pass. Even so, Grand Theft Auto 5 leaving Xbox Game Pass is still disappointing, given its status as the highest-rated game on the service. Grand Theft Auto 5 has a 97 overall rating, making it the ninth-highest rated game of all time at the time of this writing.
