It’s that time again where we have to prepare to say goodbye to a selection of titles currently available in the Xbox Game Pass library. Want to know which ones will be leaving the subscription at the end of May 2018?
The end of April only saw a measly three titles leave the service and many more have arrived in their place since the start of May, thus filling any potential void. But as May draws to a close, we’ll be seeing something of a mass exodus from Xbox Game Pass as 21 titles are set to disappear. The silver lining here is that majority of them are the backward compatible Xbox 360 classics, although the entire BioShock trio will surely be a loss for some. Fortunately there are just the two on the Xbox One departure front; the tower-defense challenge of Defense Grid 2 and the turn-based fantasy take on American football, Blood Bowl 2.
UPDATE – Four additional games are being removed and have been included on the list below.
