Alas, it’s not all good news. With every game that comes to Game Pass, we must lose some. Think of it as Phil Spencer’s third law of Game Pass motion – every incoming game must force another one off the service. However, it’s not all terrible news, as you’ll still be able to bag these games for yourself with a special 20% discount with your Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
