I would say that it was because the Reubenites and Gadites (as noted in Numbers 32:16-33) agreed to fully participate along with the other ten tribes in the conquest of the land on the west side of the Jordan River until the heathen nations residing in the Promised Land had been fully defeated -- a promise to which Moses gave approval in Numbers 32:29.
