    Can not recover purchased game in My Library


    Hi all,

    Bought and downloaded RDR2. It worked fine until today. An error message showed up, telling me the game needs to be connected to my account ( it already was, coz I played it for a few days )

    Regardless, after lots of research, it was advised to uninstall and reinstall this game. After uninstall, the game icon was nowhere to be found. I could not even download it from the Microsoft store! They expected me to repurchase the game again.

    The purchase is both in my Microsoft payment history and Store Order history. On the Gold Pass site, it even says I own this game.

    Now totally out of ideas. I have tried all troubleshooting measures listed on the net, and Xbox site. I also informed Microsoft and requested a refund. (to be used to buy a fresh copy of RDR2). Unfortunately, Microsoft bluntly informed me, that games that have already been played, will not be refunded.

    Now I'm in a corner, no game, and lost $54.

    Anyone out there with an answer, or a fix? That would be a tremendous appreciation.

    Thank you

    :)

    Hi Mateus,

    Thank you so much for your quick reply. I tried all the steps on your list twice over without any luck. Actually worked on this issue until 3am ( Thailand time ).

    In the end, the whole problem was, that I downloaded the “free” RDR2 online through Game Pass Ultimate. Nobody ( including forums ), had mentioned that in order to play RDR2 story mode, you would need the RDR2 “online” DLC.. Unknowing to me, Game Pass erased this free DLC this month. I did buy the story mode only, but without the DLC.....this game was not downloadable anymore.

    I took the chance of purchasing the RDR2 “online” DLC to see if this would resolve the missing Game.

    Bingo 😎

    Thank you again Mateus

    Regards Olli
