What's leaving Xbox Game Pass in December 2023? Well, Microsoft hasn't confirmed anything just yet, but based on some games that were added to the service this time last year, we can at least make a few predictions ahead of time.
We know that a lot of Xbox users want more advance notice of games leaving Xbox Game Pass, but Microsoft understandably gives us around two weeks right now - and don't forget, publishers sometimes secure late deals with Microsoft to keep their games on Game Pass, even after they've been announced to be leaving!
So, before we take a look at the following list of potential games leaving Xbox Game Pass in December 2023, we want to stress that nothing has been confirmed yet, and this will not be a 100% accurate list by any means. Some of these games might leave, some of these games might stay, and many others might be added to the list.
The most common (but definitely not the only) trend with Xbox Game Pass seems to be that games stick around for one year, so we've gone back to December 2022 to look at the games that were added to Game Pass at the time. That said, we've also added a few games from the December 2021 list as well. Based on those original announcements, here's what we think could potentially leave Xbox Game Pass in December 2023:
|Date It Joined Xbox Game Pass||Game||Platform|
|December 2, 2021||Console, PC|
|December 2, 2021||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 2, 2021||Stardew Valley||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 16, 2021||The Gunk||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 1, 2022||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 1, 2022||The Walking Dead: The Final Season (Seems unlikely?)||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 6, 2022||Hello Neighbor 2||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 6, 2022||LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 8, 2022||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 13, 2022||High On Life||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 13, 2022||Console, PC, Cloud|
|December 15, 2022||Rainbow Billy: The Curse Of The Leviathan||Console, PC, Cloud|
As mentioned previously, there could be plenty of additions to this list, and many of these games might stick around on Xbox Game Pass for even longer, but it seems likely that we'll lose at least some of these in December 2023. Our predictions usually turn out to be anywhere from 30%-80% correct.
Obviously we've still got November to come, so there's a lot more happening with Game Pass this month as well. Plenty of great games are on the way to the service including Like a Dragon Gaiden and Persona 5 Tactica!
