Here's What Might Be Leaving Xbox Game Pass In May 2024

Update: Microsoft has begun revealing some of May 2024's Xbox Game Pass departures, as we've highlighted elsewhere on Pure Xbox. The table below has been updated with the games that are definitely leaving soon.

Original story (Sat 6th Apr, 2024 14:30 BST): What's leaving Xbox Game Pass in May 2024? 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 May 2024, 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 May 2023 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 May 2022 list as well. Based on those original announcements, here's what we think could potentially leave Xbox Game Pass in May 2024:

May 25, 2023 Railway Empire 2 Console, PC
May 30, 2023 Chicory: A Colorful Tale Console, PC
May 30, 2023 Farworld Pioneers Console, PC

As usual, there could be plenty of additions to this list, and a few of these games might stick around for Xbox Game Pass for even longer, but it seems likely that we'll lose at least some of these in May 2024. Our predictions usually turn out to be anywhere from 30%-80% correct - you never quite know how accurate they'll be!

It's still early days for April as well of course, so we've got some great Xbox Game Pass additions (and a few departures) still to come over the next few weeks. And then, May marks the arrival of the long-awaited Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2!
