Most of the new releases announced on Tuesday are for Xbox One and Xbox Series X, with a few set aside for PC and cloud gaming. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers get access to all of the games.
GTA 5 was on Xbox Game Pass before, but only briefly — from January to April of 2020. MLB The Show 21, made by Sony San Diego Studio was announced for Xbox One and Xbox Series X at the beginning of April. NHL 21 joins the library via EA Play (meaning it is available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers) about a month before the Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to begin.
Microsoft also announced a change to the Xbox Game Pass menu in the console dashboard; it will now show friends who are currently playing Xbox Game Pass titles, encouraging users to jump in with them.
