Xbox Game Pass: Do We Really Know When A Newly Added Popular Game Will Be Leaving?!

A newly added Xbox Game Pass game already has a removal date, so fans may want to prioritize it over other games on the service.



According to correspondence from 2K, NBA 2K24 will only be available on Xbox Game Pass until August 31, 2024. This is already progress; based on the first news, it seemed that he could leave even sooner. However, it’s still rare for subscribers to know a game’s removal date months in advance.

Xbox Game Pass games are usually removed on two specific days each month: the 15th of the month and the last day of the month.

Game Pass subscribers usually only get two weeks’ notice that games are about to leave the service. There are rare exceptions to the rule. Now, newcomer NBA 2K24 is one of those rare exceptions.

NBA 2K24 was added to Xbox Game Pass on March 11. Its addition to the subscription service came as a big surprise, as NBA 2K24 was not mentioned anywhere in the Game Pass Wave 1 announcement. Although the game received mixed reviews, the popularity of the NBA 2K franchise cannot be denied. There are many people who would jump at the chance to play the latest game in the series. Without having to buy it at the total price. Unfortunately, Game Pass subscribers can only access NBA 2K24 until August 31, 2024. That means the game will only be available on the service for about five months.

In addition, there have been times when a game was announced to be removed from Xbox Game Pass, but it ended up staying on the service.

The most recent example is Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered is reportedly leaving Game Pass on March 15, but this claim was later retracted. However, the same is unlikely to happen with NBA 2K24. So, anyone who wants to play it with their subscription should definitely do so while they still can.

PlayStation players also don’t have to give up the ability to play NBA 2K24 without purchasing the full game. Sony recently announced new PS Plus Extra and Premium games, with NBA 2K24 being part of the March 2024 lineup.
