“From 1 October 2022, the monthly games provided to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members via Games with Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 titles,” it reads.
Xbox - July 2022 Games with Gold
“We have reached the limit of our ability to bring Xbox 360 games to the catalogue; however, Games with Gold will continue to include Xbox One titles and exclusive savings each month.
“This will not impact any Xbox 360 games that you downloaded before October 2022,” it added.
“Any Xbox 360 titles that you redeem via Games with Gold before that time are yours to keep on your Xbox account, regardless of whether you continue your subscription.”
UPDATE: A Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed the plans in a statement issued to VGC.
“We’re always looking at ways to evolve the Xbox experience based on community engagement, feedback and shifting company priorities,” they said.
“We have reached the limit of our ability to bring new games to the catalog from the past due to licensing and technical constraints. We will continue to focus on providing Xbox One titles through the Games with Gold program.”
Earlier today Microsoft confirmed the latest wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for console, PC and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
They include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Last Call BBS, DJMax Respect V, Matchpoint: Tennis Championships, Road 96, Escape Academy, My Friend Peppa Pig, Overwhelm, Paw Patrol the Movie and PowerWash Simulator.
