Xbox Game Pass Leak Reveals Removal Dates for a Lot of Games

Xbox Game Pass has proven itself, time and again, to have the best bang for its buck out of all available gaming services. Every month, it seems Xbox Game Pass adds more games than it takes away, keeping the library fresh without forcing subscribers to rush to every game day one. The games leaving are often announced early enough too that those interested can play them before they leave.

Of course, fans are aware that many of these are limited-time agreements. The developer, publisher, and Microsoft are typically the only one aware of how long a game will be on the service, with “removal dates” decided way before. Now, an Xbox Game Pass leak reveals several removal dates for games both big and small this year.


These dates were discovered via the Microsoft Store app, while even more have been found using the PC app too. It’s unlikely that this was intentional, so fans should expect this to be fixed pretty soon. At the same time, each of these dates are also unconfirmed—behind-the-scenes, it is possible that some of the games stay on longer. Even with that in mind, Xbox Game Pass subscribers should take these with a grain of salt.

By no means is this list exhaustive either. There are likely more Xbox Game Pass titles to leave the service beyond these, but for many, this may account to several of the big titles leaving. These dates may also be tentative, but it would also be a good measure for subscribers to manage their backlogs.

Still, even with this many and more confirmed to leave Xbox Game Pass over the next year, there are already 31 day-one Xbox Game Pass titles confirmed for this year too (with many more to be confirmed), including Starfield, Scorn, A Plague: Tale Requiem, Slime Rancher 2, and several more games of all sizes.

Xbox Game Pass subscribers typically get a handful of free games every month.
