Xbox has confirmed that, from October, subscribers will not be receiving any more 360-era games with their monthly Games With Gold.
In an email sent out to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, Xbox wrote;
“From 1st 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”.
Whilst this is indeed the end of an era, Xbox was also quick to note how any 360 titles you have currently claimed will still be available;
“This will not impact any Xbox 360 games that you downloaded before October 2022. Any 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”.
Currently, subscribers can claim two Xbox One-era and two Xbox 360/original Xbox titles monthly.
Whether this means that, from October onwards, we will only be receiving Xbox One-era titles remains to be seen. For now, though, we at least know what this month’s Games With Gold are.
