PS Plus Extra, Premium no longer has Red Dead Redemption 2, Q*Bert

By Lee Brady,

PS Plus is losing Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 and Q*Bert Rebooted after only three months on Sony's subscription service. Both games will leave PS Plus the same day new games like Deathloop and Assassin's Creed Origins join.

Update: PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium subscribers can no longer access Red Dead Redemption 2 or Q*Bert Rebooted via the Game Library, as both games have now expired on the service. To continue playing either title, you will either need to own a PS Plus Essential version of each game in your library or own a purchased copy.

New PS Plus Extra and Premium games have joined the service in place of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Q*Bert, including Deathloop, Assassin's Creed Origins, and every title in the Sly Cooper series. Let us know in the comments if you're looking forward to jumping into any of the new additions, or if you're left scrambling to purchase Q*Bert Rebooted to once more get your sweary arcade fix.

Original Story: PS Plus is set to lose Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption 2 and arcade remake Q*Bert Rebooted on the 20th September, 2022. Both games were previously available on Sony's PS Now service, so it appears their joining PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium for such a short time was to fulfil a contractual holdover from Sony's previous subscription service. That said, Red Dead Redemption 2 leaving PlayStation Plus is quite a loss for subscribers.

While PS Plus losing one of its biggest draws in Red Dead Redemption 2 next week is quite the blow, we have known the AAA western would be leaving PlayStation Plus since July this year. The upside for subscribers is that whole ream of additional new PS Plus Extra and Premium games for September 2022 will be taking RDR2's place, including blockbuster titles like Deathloop, the entire Sly Cooper series, Assassin's Creed Origins (one of the highest ranked Assassin's Creed games), Chicory A Colorful Tale (one of PlayStation's best co-op games).
