Updated February 19, 2020: It seems like Stellaris: Console Edition has been removed from Xbox Game Pass without warning, but that may just be an error.
Xbox Game Pass is a monthly game subscription service that has garnered millions of subscribers over the past several months. It offers hundreds of games for $10 a month, and you can even bundle Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass for $15 a month.
Every month, Xbox Game Pass gets a lot of new games. However, in order to make room for those titles, older games leave the service. Today, the Xbox Game Pass app on iOS revealed that Batman: Return to Arkham, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, Just Cause 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Snake Pass are leaving soon. Aside from last month, this has to be one of the biggest exoduses because big-name games like Batman: Return to Arkham and Rise of the Tomb Raider are departing soon.
Batman: Return to Arkham
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Just Cause 4
Rise of the Tomb Raider
What do you think of these departures? Do you play any of these games? Let us know. If you do play them, be sure to purchase them because Xbox Game Pass gives you a discount on titles that are part of the subscription.

Good thing I've decided to polish off Return to Arkham soon.
Damn, never even got to JC4. Knew that was coming. I didn't even know Batman was on the service.
Yeah, I actually decided I wanted to play through the series, I own Knight but never played it and had finished Asylum previously but I never got around to beating City on the 360, now I've got two weeks (I assume) to finish that game. And agreed on JC4, I haven't actually played any of the Just Cause games always wanted to but just never gotten around to it.
Drat, playing thru Batman and may not finish it now...sigh...
