Xbox Game Pass 'Leaving Soon' dates now showing on Microsoft Store PC app [updated]

By Sean Carey,
Update: While we are still waiting for an official Game Pass announcement from Microsoft about what games are leaving the service soon, the ‘Leaving Soon' section of the Game Pass app has been updated.

As previously stated, the dates listed previously were not confirmed, and it appears that The Yakuza Remastered series, A Plague Tale Innocence, Control, and The Medium, all of which had either a January 31st or February 1st date, are not leaving Xbox Game Pass.

However, other games that do have a February 1st leaving date, according to the Microsoft Store PC app (and not included in our original article), are in fact leaving. Nowhere Prophet, Xeno Crisis, Cyber Shadow, and Prison Architect — all of which showed a February 1st date on the Store PC app — have now been announced as leaving Xbox Game Pass soon, so it appears some of the dates listed on the Store PC app could still be accurate, though we can't confirm that for certain — they could just be pointing towards the end of a sale.

Nowhere Prophet

Original Story: It appears the new Microsoft Store app on PC is now displaying dates for when games might drop out of Xbox Game Pass.


As spotted by Alias79514632 on Twitter, the updated Microsoft Store app on PC has begun showing what looks to be a date for when a game will leave Xbox Game Pass or when a title's 20% Game Pass discount will end. At the moment, we can't say for sure what the date is, but generally, when a game's 20% Game Pass discount is up, it means the title's time in the service has also come to an end. Just remember here that none of this is confirmed, so don't take these dates as gospel.

Hades Game Pass leaving date

We've had a peek at the Store ourselves and can confirm we are seeing dates for a wide variety of different Xbox Game Pass titles, though not all of them. Games such as Hades, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Among Us, Back 4 Blood, Outer Wilds, Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, Yakuza 5, Yakuza 6, Children of Morta, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Stardew Valley, and many, many more, are now all showing dates on their Store pages. Most of the dates displayed seem to line up with the game being in the service for around 12 months. It's possible that these dates could change in the future and should not be taken as definitive. Here is what we've found so far:
The Microsoft Store PC app is showing dates for loads more games, though some, such as Spelunky 2, Dead Cells, and Generation Zero, don't seem to show dates at all.

We should hear about what games are officially leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of the month from Microsoft in the coming days. If the dates that we've found are correct, then Yakuza 3, 4, 5, and A Plague Tale: Innocence should all be in Microsoft's official announcement.

Again, none of this has been confirmed, and while it is looking promising, take this information with a pinch of salt. We can't say for certain that these games will leave on the dates shown.
