We hope it is a Microsoft mistake, as there was a promise that the first party games, that is, the company itself, once on the Xbox Game Pass, would never be withdrawn. Well, we have the final list of games that left the service until October 31st.
There is still time to enjoy many of them, we are still in the middle of the month. However, what catches the most attention is the withdrawal of Halo Wars, which is a title of Xbox Game Studios. Many believe his withdrawal is that he will be able to join Games With Gold for Xbox Live Gold members in December. However, this has recently happened with Gears 4, and yet this game has not been removed from Game Pass.
List of games that will be removed by 10/31:
- The Escapists
- Thief of thieves
- Halo wars
- Darksiders II
It may have been a mistake, or we expect more clarification from Microsoft. Let's wait for more information. For now, play these by the end of this month. The most likely hypothesis is that the “no withdrawal” rule only applies to new games.
