Twelve games leaving Xbox Game Pass in March

Gaming / Xbox

The games listed below are also currently 20% off in case you want to pick them up at a bit of a discount.

While eight games are joining the Xbox Game Pass in March (including Sea of Thieves on March 20th), twelve titles — mostly Xbox 360 CAPCOM and SEGA games — will be leaving the subscription service on March 1st. If you go to the Xbox Game Pass on your Xbox One, there’s a tile on the far right under featured called “Games leaving 3/1” and today was the first time we saw it pop up. Last month, it mentioned games leaving on 1/31 so it’s unclear if you’ll still be able to play these games on March 1st or if tomorrow will be the last day.

So if you’ve got some free time over the next 24-48 hours, you might want to check out these games one last time for free if you’re a Game Pass subscriber. The games listed below are also currently 20% off in case you want to pick them up at a bit of a discount. A few of these have been free with Games with Gold in the past so you may already have them in your owned game library.
