Microsoft extending free Xbox 360 games promotion indefinitely

But no word of extension to Xbox One.

Microsoft's free Xbox 360 game programme Games with Gold will now run indefinitely, the company has announced.

It had previously only been confirmed to last until the year's end.

Today's announcement made no mention of any extension of the programme for Xbox One, however.

Games with Gold began earlier this year and offers two free titles for download each month to all Xbox Gold subscribers. The free game changes on the 1st and 16th of every month, with each available for two weeks.

The current title is Halo 3, which will be available through 31st October. Previous offerings have included Assassin's Creed 2, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes, Dead Rising 2, Crackdown and Fable 3.
