Xbox Game Pass May 2024 (Wave 2): What’s new and leaving

We’re only halfway through May, and we’re already getting another round of title additions (and subtractions) from Xbox Game Pass. However, with every new game coming to the service, there is another game that we must say goodbye to.

In a blog post, Xbox has announced what’s new for Game Pass in the second half of May 2024. There is one game that is available to play right now, some more games that are coming throughout the rest of the month, and a number of games that are leaving the subscription service.

The announcement comes only two weeks after the company announced its first wave of updates to Game Pass in May, so this month is turning out to have a lot going on for subscribers. Let’s jump in.
