Xbox Game Pass is losing some pretty games on both PC and Xbox One in the near future. As you may know, Microsoft is really, really great at promoting and highlighting all the new games that join Xbox Game Pass every week. However, they aren't great about advertising what games are leaving the service, for obvious reasons. That said, each month the service does lose games. Sometimes the games that leave the service aren't that notable, but sometimes they are. This time we have a case of the latter.
At the moment of publishing, it's unclear when these games will leave the service, as Microsoft doesn't divulge this information. However, what Microsoft does note is that every game in the leaving soon section will be gone within two weeks. In other words, if you're interested in playing any of the games below, make sure to do so sooner rather than later.
For those that don't know: Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service available for $10 a month. With it -- whether on Xbox One or PC -- you get unlimited access to a vast library of games that is constantly evolving with weekly additions and subtractions. On top of this, you get other perks, such as the ability to play some games early and exclusive discounts.
