In October, Xbox 360 games will be removed from Xbox Games with Gold

In October, Microsoft plans to eliminate Xbox 360 games from its monthly Games with Gold promotion. The software business has begun notifying Xbox Live Gold users of the change, stating that it has “hit the limit of our capacity to introduce Xbox 360 games to the portfolio.”

Games with Gold is a monthly perk for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users. Every month, Microsoft handpicks free games, and all Xbox 360 titles are playable on the most recent Xbox Series X / S consoles and Xbox One.

Microsoft’s Xbox backward compatibility programme reappeared briefly last year with 76 new games, but the firm stated it had “hit the limit of our capacity to introduce new games to the catalogue from the past owing to licencing legal, and technical constraints.” That would explain why the number of new Xbox 360 titles available for Games with Gold has now been surpassed.

This change will not affect Xbox 360 games that you have previously downloaded or redeemed through Games with Gold. This simply implies that, from October 1st, Microsoft will not be adding any new Xbox 360 titles to the Games with Gold programme.

While Xbox Game Pass has become the must-have subscription for Xbox owners, Xbox Live Gold remains a huge hit. Last year, Microsoft intended to raise the cost of a yearly subscription to the programme, but after public outcry, the corporation reversed course and even removed the Xbox Live Gold need for free-to-play games.

Although Xbox Live Gold offers monthly savings on the Microsoft Store, the majority of the subscription’s essential services are now available to all modern Xbox owners for free. However, an Xbox Live Gold subscription is still required for an Xbox 360. Concerning the future of Xbox Live Gold, Microsoft began phasing down the Xbox Live name last year, instead referring to the collection of software and services as the Xbox network.
