Xbox has today confirmed that as of October 1st, 2022, it will no longer include Xbox 360 games in its Xbox Game with Gold line-up. This was confirmed in an email sent to myself in regards to my Xbox Live Gold membership.
This is due to the fact that Xbox has reached the limit of its ability to bring anymore Xbox 360 games to the catalogue. This will not effect games that have already been included in the Games with Gold Line-up and downloaded by users.
Xbox 360 games were a staple of Xbox Games with Gold line-ups particularly in recent months, but it was becoming clear that the amount that were left that hadn’t been included were becoming increasingly thin.
The full email from Xbox reads:
“Our Games with Gold selections will be changing soon:
From 1 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.
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.
