Xbox Game Pass is Losing Three Games at the End of April

Play them now, or forever hold your peace.

Much like how the list of movies available on streaming sites like Netflix get culled every month, Xbox Games Pass too will be losing three games at the end of the month.

Starting on April 30, 2018, Lumo, NBA 2K17, and WWE 2K17 will no longer be available through Xbox's Netflix for games style service. Xbox removes games from the Game Pass on a monthly basis and luckily this month's list is pretty short.

Xbox Game Pass

As noted, two of the games leaving this month, NBA 2K17 and WWE 2K17, were added fairly recently in February. So if you've been putting off finishing those two games, now's the time to wrap them up because you won't have access to them much longer.

On the bright side, we should expect some new games to arrive to the service soon. The Master Chief Collection which includes the Halo 2 Anniversary Edition, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 3, and Halo 4 was recently teased for Game Pass. So if you're a fan of the Master Chief, you should expect his complete hits collection sometime in the future.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service where for $9.99 a month, players can have access to whatever games are available through the service. Microsoft also promised that first-party games like Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3 will automatically come to Game Pass, theoretically slashing the cost of a $60 game to $10, granted it'll be a recurring subscription cost.

Fans have been pretty receptive to Game Pass so far, and the problems with the service aren't inherently tied to how it's designed. Rather it's more about the catalogue of games offered through the service. We did a deep-dive into Game Pass and what it means for Xbox as a game console going forward and found Xbox's current position in gaming to be rather interesting. Thanks to Game Pass and Backwards Compatibility, Xbox is in a pretty strong position service-wise. Now if only we could get more games.
