All Xbox Game Pass games will be removed in December 2021

Tech Highlights:

  • Xbox Game Pass is currently one of the best gaming subscription services available, but some standout titles have left the service this month, with a few more on the way.

  • All Xbox Game Pass games will be deleted in December 2021.

Xbox Game Pass is, undeniably, an incredible deal for gamers. With both PC and Xbox players being able to use the service for just $10-15 a month, and an extensive library of first and third-party games being available, Game Pass is a no-brainer for players who want to try as many games as possible.

December 15 saw the first round of games being kicked off Game Pass this month, with a select few that the removal might have upset some players. One such game is The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.

However, games don’t stay on Xbox Game Pass forever, and with every batch of excellent new releases also comes an array of excellent games that take their leave from the service. December is a very sharp double-edged sword for Game Pass, with juggernauts like Halo Infinite, Among Us, and Mortal Kombat 11 all hitting the service, making its relatively low price tag feel even more like a bargain. Yet, there are also quite a few titles leaving Game Pass that are just as worthy of players’ time, and a few that have already said their goodbyes.

With the success of Until Dawn, it only made sense for developer Supermassive Games to capitalize on their own particular style of narrative-driven horror gameplay. Thus, The Dark Pictures Anthology series was created, and the first entry, Man of Medan, has just left Game Pass. While the game saw average critical success, the game’s unique narrative focus and cinematic visual design does set it apart from many games on the service. Even if Man of Medan’s gameplay wasn’t a massive hit with many players, its removal from Game Pass is a bit of a blow to horror fans.

In another hit to Game Pass, Guacamelee! 2 also left on December 15. A Metroidvania with extreme style and visual flair, along with some very tight brawler mechanics, Guacamelee! 2 was not only one of Game Pass’ best brawler games, but also one of its best co-op titles. Guacamelee! 2 offered some excellent four-player co-op, with some very intuitive controls allowing for a wide range of gamers to jump straight in with a friend, regardless of their skill level or experience with the brawler genre. The game being taken off Game Pass is a definite hit, but there are plenty of other great co-op experiences, such as Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which was just added this month.
