After being removed and replaced by Red Dead Redemption 2 almost a year ago, Grand Theft Auto V. will return to the Xbox Game Pass for consoles on April 8, and it will also come to Microsoft’s cloud gaming service, xCloud.
Despite being almost eight years old, Grand Theft Auto V. is still popular and one of the best selling games of all time. Since its release in 2013, the game has been ported to PS4 and Xbox One, and it will receive the next generation port for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S later this year.
The release on xCloud will allow players to play the game, included GTA Online mode, while on the go without being tied to the console. xCloud is included for users who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, although the service is currently only available on Android devices.
Microsoft also confirmed in a blog post today that more than 50 games available in the xCloud library support touch controls, so you can play games on Android devices without a controller. The function debuted in September last year with support for Minecraft Dungeons, but now some of the biggest titles on xCloud, including Gir 4 and Sea of Thieves, support function.
