Xbox Game Pass has already been updated in the past few hours with the complete list of all the titles that will leave the catalog these days.
The list has therefore lengthened to 8 free games ready to say goodbye, divided between Xbox consoles and PCs, which will soon no longer be playable at no additional cost by users subscribed to the subscription service ( you can find it on Amazon).
Among these stands out the farewell of Quantum Break, with the Redmond house ready to remove the exclusive developed by Remedy from the list of outgoing games.
Now, as also reported by Gaming Bolt, it has emerged that the farewell of the title in question would be due to licensing problems, but it cannot be excluded that the game could return to the Game Pass catalog sooner or later.
Quantum Break will leave the Xbox Game Pass library by April 15, which took quite a few gamers by surprise. In a statement released to Xbox Dynasty, Microsoft confirmed that Remedy Entertainment’s sci-fi shooter will be leaving the service due to licensing issues.
The publisher hasn’t clarified what exactly these issues are specifically, but it’s worth noting that they don’t it is exactly the first time that a first party title has been forced out of the Game Pass catalog for the same reason (even Forza have been removed from the service catalog due to problems license).
That said, Microsoft has confirmed that it is working behind the scenes to solve these headaches and that, thanks to the ongoing negotiations, Quantum Break will soon return to Xbox Game Pass . How long that will take remains to be seen, but subscribers can at least rest assured that Remedy’s shooter won’t be saying goodbye to the service permanently.
Staying on the subject, Xbox Store has punctually renewed the appointment with the new weekly discounts for users of Microsoft home consoles, like every Tuesday.
Finally, incredible but true, Microsoft seems to be already actively working on the next generation of consoles.
