What’s leaving Xbox Game Pass in December 2022? Well, Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, but based on some games that were added to the service this time last year, we can at least make a few predictions ahead of time.
We know that a lot of Xbox users want more advance notice of games leaving Xbox Game Pass, but Microsoft understandably gives us around two weeks right now – and don’t forget, publishers sometimes secure late deals with Microsoft to keep their games on Game Pass, even after they’ve been announced to be leaving!
So, before we take a look at the following list of potential games leaving Xbox Game Pass in December 2022, we want to stress that nothing has been confirmed yet, and this will not be a 100% accurate list by any means. Some of these games might leave, some of these games might stay, and many others might be added to the list.
The most common (but definitely not the only) trend with Xbox Game Pass seems to be that games stick around for one year, so we’ve gone back to December 2021 to look at the games that were added to Game Pass at the time. That said, we’ve also added a few games from the December 2020 list as well. Based on those original announcements, here’s what we think could potentially leave Xbox Game Pass in December 2022:

As mentioned previously, there could be plenty of additions to this list, and many of these games might stick around on Xbox Game Pass for even longer, but it seems likely that we’ll lose at least some of these in December 2022.
Of course, we’ve still got plenty of games set to leave Xbox Game Pass in November 2022 as well, with the first batch having already been announced a few days ago. Another set of games will likely be leaving on November 31st.
