Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox cloud streaming options offered for Elden Ring and Grand Theft Auto 5 were a “bug.” Last night, enthusiasts discovered that titles like Soul Hackers 2, GTA 5, and Elden Ring could be played through cloud streaming.

Some suspected that this was being given out immediately in anticipation of an announcement at Gamescom later this month.

However, Microsoft has since said that the game listings – which also indicated that they were part of Xbox Game Pass – were incorrect and that the problem has been resolved.

“We’re aware of an issue that wrongly advertised some games as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available,” a Microsoft spokeswoman informed Eurogamer. “We released a patch, and this has been updated.”

A simple search of the Xbox store catalogue reveals that Soul Hackers 2, GTA5, and Elden Ring are not now available for cloud streaming.

Fans had anticipated that these games would be included in Microsoft’s plans to enable cloud streaming to titles not included in the Xbox Game Pass library.

Fortnite was just made accessible for this type of streaming, and being a free-to-play game, it is clearly not included in the Xbox Game Pass membership.

Fans will have to wait a bit longer to find out how Xbox cloud streaming will grow in the future.

This afternoon, Microsoft revealed its Gamescom 2022 lineup, which includes Pentiment, Age of Empires 4, and Grounded.
