Microsoft unveiled that in May 6 games will leave Xbox Game Pass, and that this list includes a Final Fantasy and a much loved (albeit dated) exclusive.
The subscription service of the American giant has just announced how it will renovate its library in the month just started, but that unfortunately includes spills.
Among the new entries, 9 in May, we find, if nothing else, titles of a certain depth, such as Red Dead Online, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and others.
Xbox Game Pass has surpassed the figure of 22 million subscribers only recently and this means that, inevitably, the demand for new titles will increase more and more.
But not all that glitters is gold, and that’s how it is, in the face of 9 new grafts, 6 games are set to come out Coming soon.
Here is the list just unveiled by Microsoft:
- Alan Wake (Console and PC)
- Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 (PC)
- Dungeon of the Endless (Cloud, Console and PC)
- Final Fantasy IX (Console and PC)
- Hotline Miami (PC)
- Plebby Quest: The Crusades (PC)
Unlike in recent months, the Redmond house has confirmed that goodbyes will all be celebrated on May 15 and not at the end of the month.
As is customary, subscribers to Xbox Game Pass they will lose access to these six titles but will be able to purchase them by that date with a 20% discount.
Among the most painful exits, inevitably, we must mention two: Alan Wake, Remedy’s acclaimed Xbox 360 (and PC) exclusive, and Final Fantasy IX.
Both will greet all the platforms on which they had arrived, relatively soon and therefore in a quite surprising way.
Alan Wake it had also been a technical showcase on Xbox Series X | S, making it one of the first products to take advantage of backwards compatibility to introduce Auto HDR.
