Grand Theft Auto San Andreas – The Definitive Edition is set to leave the Xbox Game Pass service in the near future. The news comes from @Wario64 on Twitter that the game would be leaving “in the next two weeks”. Although a more specific date was not provided.
Players who wish to keep playing San Andreas will be unhappy to know that the game cannot be purchased on its own so they will have to shell out for the full Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition including all three of the games.
Vice City – The Definitive Edition is also being removed from PS+ within the next day or two so the news about San Andreas isn’t exactly a shock.
Usually fans get rather upset when they find out a game is leaving game pass. The original San Andreas is much loved by gamers around the world but the Definitive Edition of the game wasn’t well received by fans after launching with bugs and performance issues. Rockstar have since ironed out most of the problems, but it seems the damage is done and the reputation of the remasters has been tarred beyond repair.
Thankfully there is plenty of other choice for gamers who subscribe to Game Pass.
