Xbox announced new titles coming to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service in November 2021. Notably, Minecraft: Java and Bedrock Editions are joining as well as Forza Horizon 5 on release, but perhaps the most notable addition included in today's announcement is the fact that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition will be joining the service for consoles on release.

In addition to the above, the full list of upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles includes Unpacking, It Takes Two, Kill It With Fire, Football Manager 2022 and its console version Football Manager 2022: Xbox Edition, and One Step from Eden. As usual, PC, console, and via the cloud are platforms included for them, though it varies by title.
