Red Dead Redemption 2 Replaces GTA V on Game Pass Next Month
Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be pleasantly surprised next month when Red Dead Redemption 2 joins the extensive lineup of titles. Grand Theft Auto V has been on the gaming subscription for a while now and Rockstar fans will be able to enjoy another giant game from their favorite studio in May.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC now, with the cowboy simulator joining Game Pass on May 7th.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is quite the extensive open world, with gamers being able to fulfill all of their cowboy dreams both in the main story and the online game modes.
