After more people started noticing that video games like Elden Ring and GTA 5 were being flagged as available through Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft released an official statement saying it was all some kind of mistake. , which has since been corrected.
“We are aware of an issue where some games were incorrectly showing as available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. We have rolled out the fix and it is now up to date,” the spokesperson said. Eurogamer.
Of course, all that supports this claim is that the titles appeared in lists where they shouldn’t have appeared. It’s still unclear if Elden Ring, GTA 5, and others arrived before their planned future launch, or if they weren’t planned for Xbox Game Pass at all, and this issue was completely random.

If Microsoft has a major Xbox Cloud Gaming or Xbox Game Pass announcement to make in the near future, doing so during Gamescom 2022 would be the logical move.
