Is RIDE 5 on Game Pass? That's what a lot of Xbox gamers are wondering with the release of Ride 5 on Xbox Series X | S.

The Gran Turismo of bikes is back again and we're impressed by it. Is it available on Microsoft's Game Pass from launch, though? We've got everything you need to know about RIDE 5 on Game Pass right here!

Is RIDE 5 on Game Pass?

Xbox Game Pass has been a huge success since it launched back in 2017. Game Pass allows players on Xbox and PC to play many titles without actually purchasing them.

Gamers pay a monthly subscription and gain access to a huge library of games, with all first-party Xbox titles available on day one of their release.

That means that titles such as Forza Horizon 5 were available on Game Pass from the first day of its life cycle. Forza Motorsport will also be on Game Pass next month. Unfortunately, though, Ride 5 is developed by Milestone, so it's not an Xbox Game Studios title.

This means RIDE 5 isn't on Game Pass, but this could change in the future. However, that's not likely to be the case for at least a year. RIDE 4 was also never released on Game Pass, so we'll have to wait and see if RIDE 5 becomes the first game in the series to launch on Game Pass.

Also, remember that RIDE 5 isn't available on Xbox One, so players on that console can't play RIDE 5 no matter how they choose to get the game.
