Games with Gold to phase out free Xbox 360 games

By Sean Carey,

Microsoft has announced that free Xbox 360 games included with Games With Gold will be phased out soon. As of October, Games with Gold will only offer Xbox One games.

In an email sent to Xbox users, Microsoft confirmed that from October it will no longer include Xbox 360 titles in its monthly Games with Gold lineups.

"Beginning with October 1st, 2022, the monthly games Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members receive through Games with Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 titles," Microsoft said in an email which has been translated via Google.

"We've reached the limit of our ability to add Xbox 360 games to the catalog. However, Games with Gold will continue to feature exciting Xbox One titles and exclusive savings each month."

Any Xbox 360 games redeemed before October 2022 will not be affected and are yours to keep regardless of whether you continue your Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

In recent months, Microsoft has been repeating Xbox 360 games included with Games with Gold, so it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that Microsoft is phasing out older 360 games.

What do you make of the news? Sad to see Xbox 360 games phased out of Games with Gold? Let us know.
