Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s cornerstone in the gaming industry, adds new games to its ever-growing library of titles each month. Similar to Netflix, while new titles are added, some old ones are also removed to make place for the newcomers. And it looks like the titles coming to Game Pass this month have just been leaked, along with the ones that will be sadly going away.
Over on the Dealabs forums, user “billbil-kun” has posted a list of games they claim to be coming to Xbox Game Pass for the month of March. It’s important to note that this user has correctly predicted PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass for previous months a lot of times so their word is reliable. Here are the games Microsoft will be reportedly adding to Game Pass this month:
- F1 2021
- The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk
- Weird West
- Zero Escape: The Nonary Games
That’s a pretty solid lineup that adds on top of Guardians of the Galaxy, Lawn Mowing Simulator, Kentucky Route Zero, Young Souls, Far: Changing Tides and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII that were added to Game Pass this month. Of course, the most notable game here is F1 2021 which will certainly headline the announcement. Apart from this, here are the games leaving Xbox Game Pass month:
- Nier: Automata (Cloud, Console & PC)
- Phogs! (Cloud, Console & PC)
- Torchlight III (Cloud, Console & PC)
- The Surge 2 (Cloud, Console & PC)
The leaker says that these games will leave Xbox Game Pass on March 15th. Nier: Automata is the biggest offender here and its removal has the potential of creating an uproar or backlash in the community but that is not uncommon with these monthly subscriptions as games come and go all the time.
Microsoft will reveal these games as part of the Game Pass update officially in an announcement coming soon as these games will reportedly be added to Game Pass in the second half of March. We’ll update this article when the news becomes official or if anything interesting comes up. Till then, you can consider this a sort of heads up to plan ahead.
