Here’s what’s coming and going from Xbox Game Pass this week (August 17-26)

Xbox Game Pass has enjoyed a fantastic 2021 thanks to the expansion of the Cloud program and introduction of EA Play as part of the subscription. Each new month brings with it new games, and the next two weeks will be no exception.

The downside however is that with new additions comes some removals, and we also say goodbye to a few games this month as well.

Blair Witch, Double Kick Heroes, NBA 2K21 and Stranger Things 3: The Game will all be leaving Xbox Game Pass on August 31. This is across all three iterations of Game Pass: PC, Xbox, and Cloud.

Thankfully, from August 17 through to August 26 we can expect the following games to be added in some capacity to Xbox Game Pass.
