Xbox Game Pass is Losing 12 More Games Soon

Microsoft updates the ‘Leaving Soon’ section of the Xbox Game Pass app, revealing 12 more games that are leaving the lineup.

Xbox Game Pass is losing 12 more games within the next month, with 10 of those games seemingly being removed on September 30 and two more getting the boot in early October. Microsoft has yet to highlight all the games leaving Xbox Game Pass in the second half of September in a proper blog post, which will likely come early next week, but the “Leaving Soon” section of the Xbox Game Pass app has let fans know ahead of time what games are leaving the lineup.

Microsoft has established clear patterns when it comes to highlighting the new games coming to Xbox Game Pass and the games that are leaving Xbox Game Pass in any given month. An announcement happens around the beginning of the month that shines a spotlight on the games coming in the next couple of weeks, and then another announcement happens in the middle of the month. Based on the pattern, fans can expect Microsoft to properly acknowledge the games leaving Xbox Game Pass in the second half of September 2022 at some point early next week.

The official announcement will give the specific date that the games are leaving, but most of the time, games are removed on the 15th of every month and the last day of every month. There’s no reason to think that Microsoft will deviate from that pattern for the games leaving in the second half of September, so Xbox Game Pass subscribers can count these titles being removed come September 30.

Xbox Game Pass Games Leaving October 2022

While it’s true that games are usually removed from Xbox Game Pass on the 15th and last day of every month, there are some exceptions to the rule. Well-reviewed racing games Dirt 4 and Dirt Rally are two such exceptions, with both games set to be removed from Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on October 3. Dirt 4 and Dirt Rally are part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate through its EA Play integration, so those with vanilla Game Pass don’t have access to the games at all.
