Xbox has indicated that all games developed by its studios will be available in Xbox Game Pass, but it is clear that this is not forever. Thus, we learn that Content for Midnight club available will be withdrawn from service and sale at the end of the year.

Forza Horizon 4 removed from digital sales and Xbox Game Pass

It’s official, Forza Horizon 4 will be removed from digital platforms (Microsoft Store and Steam) on December 15, 2024. This means that the game and its additional content will no longer be available for purchase on online stores. Xbox explains this “due to licensing and agreements with its partners”.

While we imagined obtaining all of the Xbox games in the Xbox Game Pass catalog, we learn that Microsoft can therefore remove one of them, as is the case with this announcement.

From July 25, the game will be entitled to the final series (series 77) which will include the last Playlist of the festival which will end on August 22. After this date, you will no longer be able to access the Playlist screen, except to view the history. The splash screen will also be changed accordingly. The developers note that you will still be able to access the Forza Events screen which will include a selection of daily and weekly challenges. By completing these challenges and participating in Forzathon Live events, you will earn Forzathon Points to redeem.
