Xbox Games with Gold will no longer feature Xbox 360 games from October

Xbox today confirmed that it will no longer include Xbox 360 games in the Xbox Game with Gold lineup from October 1, 2022. This was confirmed in an email sent to myself regarding my Xbox Live Gold membership.

This is due to Xbox having reached the limit of its ability to bring more Xbox 360 games into the catalog. This will not affect games already included in the Games with Gold lineup and downloaded by users.

Especially in recent months, Xbox 360 games have been a staple of Xbox Games with Gold series, but it became clear that the number that had not yet been included was shrinking.

The full email from Xbox reads:

“Our Games with Gold rosters will be changing soon:

Beginning October 1, 2022, the monthly games offered to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members through Games with Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 titles.

We’ve reached the limit of our ability to bring Xbox 360 games to the catalog; However, Games with Gold continues to feature exciting Xbox One titles and exclusive savings every month.

This will not affect Xbox 360 games downloaded before October 2022. All Xbox 360 titles redeemed through Games with Gold before that time will be retained on your Xbox account whether or not you continue your subscription.

Thank you for being a loyal member.

Team Xbox”
