What you need to know

  • Doom, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and more are leaving Xbox Game Pass soon.
  • DayZ, Red Dead Redemption 2, and more are joining the service in May.
  • More games are expected to join Xbox Game Pass in late May.
  • You can purchase Xbox Game Pass Ultimate through Amazon.

Recently, Microsoft announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 was coming to Xbox Game Pass in May. However, the news was coupled with the announcement that coveted titles like Doom, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and more were leaving. Luckily, there are more games in the pipeline that should make the departures less painful.

You can take a look at the titles joining each platform below. These probably aren't the only games coming to Xbox Game Pass in May, but represent titles for the first half of the month.

Xbox One

  • DayZ
  • Final Fantasy IX
  • Fractured Minds
  • Red Dead Redemption 2


  • Endless Legend
  • Final Fantasy IX
  • Halo 2 Anniversary
  • MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

All of these titles are amazing experiences, and while they may not be blockbusters like Doom, they're quite addictive. DayZ is one of the most popular survival games out there and Final Fantasy IX is one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made in my opinion.
