If you were wondering about what future improvements Microsoft has planned for the Game Pass PC app, you’re about to find out about a new one right now.

Apparently, the Redmond-based tech company is thinking about adding a few more details about the games that make up the service.

It appears the new Microsoft Store app on PC is now displaying dates for when games might drop out of Xbox Game Pass.

As reported on Twitter, the updated Microsoft Store app on PC has begun showing what looks to be a date for when a game will leave Xbox Game Pass or when a title’s 20% Game Pass discount will end.

For the time being, we can’t say for sure what the date is, but generally, when a game’s 20% Game Pass discount is up, it means the title’s time in the service has also come to an end.

However, keep in mind that Xbox did not officially confirm end dates for the games depicted in the post, so don’t the information might not coincide with future plans.

After taking a closer look at the Store, anyone can see end dates for a wide variety of different Xbox Game Pass titles, though not all of them.

Among them are Hades, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Among Us, Back 4 Blood, Outer Wilds, Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, Yakuza 5, Yakuza 6, Children of Morta, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Stardew Valley, and many, many more.

Most of the dates displayed seem to line up with the game being in the service for around 12 months, so it is possible that these dates could change in the future and should not be taken as definitive.

For more accurate information about the titles that are officially leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of the month, we’ll have to wait for official news from Microsoft.

From what we have seen right now, the predictions are as follows:

  • Yakuza 3 Remastered (Windows) – January 31st, 2022
  • Yakuza 4 Remastered (Windows) – January 31st, 2022
  • Yakuza 5 Remastered (Windows) – January 31st, 2022
