Seven Games Leaving Xbox Game Pass at the End of December 2018

By Rebecca Smith, 30 days ago
We've passed the midway point of December and everybody is getting ready for the holiday season. Despite this, we are the bringer of bad news with the list of titles that will be leaving Xbox Game Pass. Like last month, seven titles have been added to the Leaving Soon section and they'll disappear at the end of the month.

Xbox Game Pass 2018

Five of the titles are Xbox One games, with the final titles being Xbox 360 Games on Demand available through Backwards Compatibility. If you're currently playing any of these titles through Game Pass, make sure you finish them within the next two weeks before you lose access to them. Here's the list:

Xbox One

Xbox 360

Meanwhile, the saga of games being removed from the Xbox Game Pass master list continues. Of those removed from the list, #IDARB, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse have all been added back and are appearing as normal. Unfortunately, there are still five games missing from that list — OXENFREE, Rise & Shine, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, The Final Station, and Westerado: Double Barreled — but all of them can be downloaded through the program by searching for them individually on the Microsoft Store.

In better news, thanks to a surprise announcement that followed The Game Awards, we know that Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Shadow Warrior 2 are due to join the program on Thursday. Of course, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice joined the program today. As a bonus, Kyub and Roundabout, which were removed at the end of March 2018, have also been readded to the program. We haven't heard anything about games to be added in January, though, and we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
