Xbox Game Pass For September 2021: All The Games Coming And Leaving

September is another big month for Xbox Game Pass--here's a roundup of all the games.


It's now September, and that means Xbox Game Pass subscribers are getting a fresh batch of games to play through the subscription service. It also means some games are leaving the program, and this month includes some big, notable ones. We're rounding up all the games being added to and removed from Game Pass here.

Coming to Xbox Game Pass on September 2 is Craftopia, which is an open-world survival game that will be available across cloud, console, and PC. Also arriving that day is the RPG Final Fantasy XIII for console and PC and the narrative card game Signs of the Sojourner for cloud, console, and PC. Bossa Studios' Surgeon Simulator 2 comes to Game Pass on September 2 as well across cloud, console, and PC.

Then on September 7, Xbox Game Pass welcomes the procedurally generated dungeon crawler Crown Trick for console and PC. Breathedge, a game inspired by retrofuturism and Soviet aesthetics, comes to cloud, console, and PC on September 9. Also arriving that days is the post-apocalyptic roguelike Nuclear Throne on console and PC, while the psychedelic guitar game The Artful Escape also comes out September 9 for console and PC.

In terms of games leaving Game Pass in September, there are a lot. Red Dead Online bows out on September 13, with Company of Heroes 2 exiting the program on September 15, alongside Forza Motorsport 7 (the game is being delisted everywhere), Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, and Disgaea 4. You can see a full rundown of the games coming to and leaving Game Pass in September below.

Outside of Game Pass, Microsoft has also announced the Xbox Games With Gold titles for September, and they include Warhammer: Chaosbane and Zone of the Enders: HD Collection, some of which are available to claim.
