Games with Gold will stop including Xbox 360 games in October

Out with the old.

We will no longer be getting any Xbox 360 games included with Games with Gold as of this October.

This is due to the fact that Microsoft has now "reached the limit of [its] ability" for adding new Xbox 360 games to the service, Microsoft stated in an email to customers seen by Eurogamer.

All is not lost though, as we will still be getting the usual monthly offering of Xbox One games.

And you will also still be able to redownload any Xbox 360 games you had already claimed, as normal.

"From 1st October 2022, the monthly games provided to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members via Games with Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 titles," Microsoft wrote.

"We have reached the limit of our ability to bring Xbox 360 games to the catalogue; however, Games with Gold will continue to include exciting Xbox One titles and exclusive savings each month.

"This will not impact any Xbox 360 games that you downloaded before October 2022. Any Xbox 360 titles that you redeem via Games with Gold before that time are yours to keep on your Xbox account, regardless of whether you continue your subscription. Thank you for being a loyal member."

Meanwhile, those who use the Games with Gold service can check out our full guide on July's offerings here.

Earlier today, Microsoft also announced its upcoming Xbox Game Pass releases. These include the return of three Yakuza titles, and the family friendly faces of Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol.

For a complete list of everything on this service, see our Xbox Game Pass games list page.
