Microsoft is Delisting Over 40 Games From its Xbox 360 Marketplace

Posted February 1, 2023 | Games | Windows | Xbox | Xbox 360


Microsoft has quietly announced that it’s planning to delist over 40 games from its Xbox 360 marketplace. On a support page, the company said that removals will start on February 7, and the list of games include several classics from the Xbox 360 as well as some original Xbox games.

In a statement shared with Gematsu (via Windows Central), Microsoft also confirmed that delisted games that are backwards compatible on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles will remain available to purchase on the Microsoft Store. Moreover, Xbox 360 owners will still be able to play these delisted games if they don’t uninstall them or if they keep the discs.

“Beginning on February 7, 2023, a limited set of games, add-ons, and in-game content will no longer be purchasable in select markets via the Xbox 360 Store,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. “These titles will no longer be purchasable on the Xbox 360 Store only, and titles that are available to be purchased on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S Stores will remain purchasable. You will still be able to play discs or previously downloaded games on your Xbox 360 and modern consoles if they are backwards compatible titles.

Some games that are about to be delisted are cross-gen games that have also been released on Xbox One: That’s the case for Assassin’s Creed IV, Call of Duty: Ghosts, or LIMBO. There are also many backwards compatible games in the list including The Witcher 2, Far Cry 2, Valve’s Left 4 Dead games, and the OG Xbox game Star Wars KOTOR 2.

You can check out the full list of games that will soon disappear from the Xbox 360 marketplace below:

It’s not uncommon for old games to disappear from online stores after a certain amount of time. As an example, Microsoft’s Forza games are usually delisted from the Microsoft Store after four years due to licensing issues, though Forza Horizon 4 is the rare exception.

Despite Microsoft stopping Xbox 360 production back in 2016, online services on the console are still supported and Microsoft still offers weekly Deals with Gold with Xbox 360 titles as well. It certainly helps that hundreds of Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible games on newer Xbox consoles, and some of them are also enhanced with 4K graphics and Auto HDR on Xbox Series X|S.
