While new games are added to Xbox Game Pass regularly, Microsoft also removes games from the service as well, giving six titles the boot today.
Microsoft makes sure that it’s always adding more games to its Xbox Game Pass subscription service than it’s removing, but games still leave the service sometimes regardless. Generally, Xbox Game Pass games leave at the middle of the month and the end of the month, and since today is November 15, six games are being removed from Xbox Game Pass. Anyone interested in the games has until November 16 to play them, and they can also purchase them at a discount for a limited time.
Whenever Microsoft removes games from Xbox Game Pass, it gives subscribers the opportunity to purchase the games at a discount. So right now any Xbox Game Pass subscriber could purchase the games that are leaving for 20% less than their usual asking price, just in case they didn’t have time to finish them while they were available on the service.
The six Xbox Game Pass games leaving on November 15, 2021 are headlined by Final Fantasy 8 Remastered, the enhanced version of the PS1 JRPG classic. Final Fantasy 8 Remastered brings the original game to modern consoles with some huge quality of life improvements, such as the ability to speed up the gameplay so that players can get through grindier sections at a much faster rate than they could before.

- Final Fantasy 8 Remastered
- Planet Coaster: Console Edition
- Star Renegades
- Streets of Rogue
- River City Girls
- The Gardens Between
Another notable game leaving Xbox Game Pass on November 15 is Planet Coaster: Console Edition. While theme park simulation games may be relatively niche, Planet Coaster: Console Edition earned mostly positive reviews at the time of its release and is generally considered one of the better games in the genre. Other titles being removed on November 15 include Star Renegades, Streets of Rogue, River City Girls, and The Gardens Between.
Even more games will be leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of the month, though Microsoft not revealed what they are at the time of this writing. However, it has touched on some of the games that will be added to the service in the second half of November 2021. For example, UnDungeon and Evil Genius 2: World Domination are coming on November 18 and November 30, respectively.
Looking ahead, there’s even more for Xbox Game Pass subscribers to look forward to in December, with Among Us coming to Xbox Game Pass on December 14 and of course, Halo Infinite dropping on December 8.
