Xbox Game Pass Will Lose 12 Games On September 30

Microsoft confirms that a dozen games are leaving the Game Pass catalog on September 30.


Microsoft's Game Pass library on Xbox and PC removes several games at the end of every month, and Microsoft has confirmed that a dozen games are going to be leaving on September 30. That means you have precious little time to play them before they're gone from the service.

As it does every month, Microsoft is removing more games from the Game Pass library soon. In a blog post, Microsoft confirmed that a dozen titles from the catalog are leaving on September 30.

These include titles across Xbox, PC, and streaming, along with games from the EA Play catalog that are available via Game Pass Ultimate. Some of the games leaving on September 30 include Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Slime Rancher, Subnautica: Below Zero, Lemnis Gate, and Astria Ascending, among others. The full list is below.

Microsoft also confirmed that, although it said earlier that Aragami 2 would leave the catalog soon, that is no longer the case--it will stay available on console, cloud, and PC.

As a reminder, Game Pass members can save 20% on any of the games heading out, so that's a silver lining at least if players want to keep the party going.

Microsoft removed 10 titles from the Game Pass library on September 15, so the additional 12 heading out on September 30 will bring the total numbers of titles banished from Game Pass at the end of September to 22. Microsoft has added eight titles to Game Pass so far in September and 10 more are coming by the end of the month for a total of 17. Combined with the removals, and assuming there are no further additions or removals this month, Game Pass will have seen its overall library shrink by four games in September.

As for games coming to Game Pass in the final weeks of September, these include Deathloop (September 20), Hardspace: Shipbreaker (September 20), Slime Rancher 2 (September 22), Grounded (September 27), and Valheim (September 29). You can see the full list of additions here.
