Listings for Grand Theft Auto V (which has already been on the service and left) and, weirdly, Soul Hackers revealed the identical factor, in that not one of the video games had beforehand been accessible both on Game Pass or on Cloud Gaming, however now right here they had been. Even weirder is the truth that none of these issues had ever been introduced, which you’d suppose can be the case given the prominence of each Elden Ring and GTA V.

There’s a motive for that, after all, as a result of Microsoft have since instructed Eurogamer that the listings had been a “bug”. “We’re conscious of a bug that incorrectly displayed some titles as accessible with Xbox Game Pass Final,” a consultant says. “We rolled out a repair and that is now up to date.”

Usually this sort of administrative, backend stuff wouldn’t be that thrilling, however what bought folks right here is that GamesCom is lower than two weeks away, with Microsoft because of make a major look (and a dwell presentation). And in June, Microsoft introduced that Xbox Game Pass Final customers would be capable of play “choose” titles they personal through Cloud Gaming, even when they weren’t a part of the Game Pass catalogue.

Put these two issues collectively and it appeared totally believable that Microsoft had merely jumped the gun on a few GamesCom bulletins. Calling these listings a “bug” definitely appears to place a dampener on that enthusiasm, however GamesCom kicks off on August 22 simply in case you need to control issues anyway.
