A number of games will soon be removed from Xbox 360 Marketplace

If you still own and use an Xbox 360 console, you should stock up on some digital games soon. Microsoft has a new Xbox support page (via Windows headquarters), stating that a long list of games and associated DLC content will be removed from Xbox 360 Marketplace starting February 7th.

The support page contains links to the games that will be removed in each country and territory. The list of titles being removed in the US market includes:

  • Aegis Wings
  • Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Assassin’s Creed IV
  • Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD
  • Blood of the Werewolf

The site advises that you can always delete a game you’ve purchased from the Xbox 360 Marketplace from your hard drive and download it again from the storefront.

It’s currently unclear if any of the games on this list will also not be available to play via backwards compatibility on the newer Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Many of these Xbox 360 games are also not available digitally on Microsoft’s newer consoles, so it’s possible that some Xbox 360 titles will simply disappear from sale altogether after February 7th.

The removal of these digital game titles comes even as physical game sales continue to decline. There is always a risk that digital games, like all digital media content, may become unavailable for sale at any time for various reasons.
