Microsoft treated us a fantastic lineup of new Xbox Game Pass games for December 2022 earlier this week, but one of the games that unfortunately appears to have dropped out until 2023 is Hot Wheels Unleashed - GOTY Edition.
In an update on the Xbox Wire website, it's simply mentioned that the game is "no longer coming on December 15th, 2022", with no specific explanation as to why this is the case. You can see the message below:
"Editor’s Note: “Hot Wheels Unleashed – Game of the Year Edition is no longer coming on Dec 15, 2022 as previously announced. We will update with a new date when we have more information to share.”
It's strange that the game is being pulled out of the list so quickly, but then again we've seen this sort of thing before - Gang Beasts, for example, was supposed to arrive in December 2020 but ended up being delayed by six months.
There's no telling when Hot Wheels Unleashed will finally make its way to Xbox Game Pass, but hopefully we won't be waiting quite as long as we were with Gang Beasts. Maybe it could even still arrive this month...?
