[Total: 1 Average: 5]

Subscribers to the Xbox Games With Gold program offered by Microsoft will no longer get Xbox 360 games beginning in the month of October.

In an email to consumers, which was then posted on Reddit, Microsoft said that from October 1, 2022, Xbox 360 titles would no longer be featured in the monthly game lineup for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members as part of the Games with Gold program.

Titles with Gold will continue to offer members with outstanding Xbox One games as well as monthly discounts; but, we will not be able to add any further Xbox 360 games to the collection going forward. Games that were either bought physically or downloaded digitally for the Xbox 360 before October 2022 will not be impacted. Regardless of whether or not you decide to retain your subscription to Games with Gold after this date, you will be able to keep any Xbox 360 Games with Gold redemptions you made before it.

Two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games are normally included in the Games With Gold promotion throughout each and every month. For instance, the Xbox game Conker: Live & Reloaded from the original Xbox was substituted for an Xbox 360 game in the month of July 2021.

There has been no formal announcement made by the company on whether or not they would replace the two Xbox 360 games with four Xbox One games, or if they will just decrease Games With Gold to only include four Xbox One titles.

As part of Microsoft’s continuous attempt to consolidate its membership offers, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, for example, now includes Xbox Live Gold. This endeavor is being carried out in conjunction with other initiatives. In 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide a 12-month subscription option for Xbox Live Gold; nevertheless, the firm has said that it has no plans to discontinue offering the program altogether.

Included in this month’s Games with Gold lineup are Torchlight, Thrillville: Off the Rails, Relicta, and Beasts of Maravilla Island.
