Microsoft has all its eggs in the Xbox Game Pass basket, dedicating itself to make the service as must-have as possible. Microsoft accomplishes this by releasing fresh Xbox Game Pass games on a regular basis, including brand-new, day one releases.

Microsoft recently revealed the new Xbox Game Pass games for August 2022, which consists of nine games so far, including four day one releases. The new Xbox Game Pass games for August 2022 should keep subscribers plenty busy, but they may want to prioritize some games leaving the lineup instead. Along with announcing the new Xbox Game Pass games for August 2022, Microsoft has also confirmed five games that are leaving the service this month.
