Xbox Cloud Gaming Will Lose 9 Games This January

Xbox has announced the 9 games that will be leaving Game Pass Ultimate (and therefore the Xbox Cloud Gaming service) throughout January. Microsoft has announced that it is working towards enabling purchased games to stream via the cloud. Hopefully, that comes in the near future to rectify this issue.

Leaving Game Pass on the 1st of January

  • Iron Harvest
  • Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars
  • Tropico 6
  • Scarlet Nexus
  • Secret Neighbour
  • Outer Wilds
  • Gorogoa
  • The Pedestrian
  • Embr

This is your chance to play them before these games leave Game Pass next January. If you have a console or play on PC, you may also save up to 20% on your purchase to keep them in your library, so this doesn’t have to be the last you see of them. And, again, we are expecting the ability to play (at least some) purchased games via the cloud to roll out from the Xbox team this year.

But just as they take games away, they give us more! Once the new games are announced, we will let you know. For the moment, have fun playing titles like High on Life and many more. Additionally, check out our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways post and test your luck to win many prizes. Happy Holidays, gamers!
