As usual, there are ten games leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of February. Much like licensing rights you will see on Hulu or Netflix, Microsoft has to go through the same thing for their service. On a side note, you can always see some sites that aren’t fans throw shade at the company. “Xbox Game Pass offers a “curated selection” of about 200 titles to subscribers, with the catch being they can disappear from the library at any time.”
Anyways… if you’re playing one of these games and it is scheduled to bail, you can purchase it. I know, but you get a 20 percent discount before the cutoff date. In this case, the cutoff is February 28th. Once the game is removed, it goes back up to full price.
Here’s the full list of outgoing games, with their prices for Game Pass subscribers until Feb. 28.
