Xbox Game Pass Will Remove Over 20 Titles on May 31

Over 20 Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles currently included in Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass will be removed from its library on May 31.

Xbox Game Pass boasts over 100 games in its catalog to fully download and play for $9.99 per month. The company has been adding 5-10 games to the monthly subscription service since its launch in June 2017. Only a few games in the catalog have been removed since then, including WWE 2K16 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here’s the full list of games that will be removed at the end of the month (via Bleeding Cool):

Xbox 360

  • Age of Booty
  • The BioShock trilogy
  • de Blob 2
  • Borderlands
  • Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
  • NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
  • Dig Dug
  • SoulCalibur
  • Final Fight: Double Impact
  • SEGA Vintage Collection Golden Axe
  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
  • Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2
  • Pac-Man Championship Edition DX
  • Bound by Flame
  • Sacred 3
  • SEGA Vintage Collection Alex Kidd & Co.
  • XCOM: Enemy Within

Xbox One

  • Defense Grid 2
  • Blood Bowl 2

Most of the games in the list were published by third-party companies such as 2K Games, Bandai Namco, Capcom, and Sega. The deals between these companies and Microsoft must be concluding, since Microsoft does not own the rights to these games. It is unknown whether the titles will reappear on the service in the future.

This month’s batch of Xbox Game Pass titles have already been added except Microsoft’s own State of Decay 2, which launches on May 22. Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, another title added this month, will only be available on the service from May 1 to Aug. 31.
