Grand Theft Auto V Exits Xbox Game Pass Unannounced: What to Expect Next"

Microsoft recently surprised Xbox Game Pass subscribers by abruptly removing Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) from the lineup on January 5, ending its six-month stint on the service. Unlike the usual practice of providing advance notice for Game Pass additions, the inclusion of GTA 5 happened without warning, catching subscribers off guard. The departure also marked the exit of four other games—Garden Story, MotoGP 22, Persona 3 Portable, and Persona 4 Golden.

Dedicated subscribers who had been with the service for an extended period had anticipated the departure of GTA 5, as the game had been featured in the "Leaving Soon" section of the app a month prior. Despite initial speculations suggesting a potential removal on January 15, the game left the service earlier than expected.

In addition to GTA 5's departure, the announcement of the GTA 6 trailer has stirred excitement among fans. The trailer, viewed over 90 million times in the first 24 hours, has become the most viewed non-music video, surpassing the previous record set by YouTuber Mr Beast.

Moving forward, the attention is shifting to the highly anticipated GTA 6, especially its online features. The success of GTA 5's online mode, particularly the rise of GTA Online RP servers, has generated widespread interest. Fans are hopeful that Rockstar will build on this success in GTA 6's online experience, potentially introducing authorized RP servers to enhance multiplayer aspects.

Speculations about GTA 6 exploring multiple main locations, including Vice City, hint at an expansive and diverse multiplayer setting. Reports suggest that Rockstar might partner with existing RP server trailblazers like NoPixel to ensure a smooth transition from community-driven RP experiences to an officially supported mode by the developers.

The GTA 6 trailer and the potential for an enriched online experience have ignited enthusiasm among fans, setting the stage for a new era in the Grand Theft Auto gaming franchise. As gamers eagerly await further details, the unexpected removal of GTA 5 from Xbox Game Pass serves as a reminder of the dynamic nature of gaming subscriptions and the exciting developments in the world of gaming.
