They must have quite the haul of games to announce for the service.
I'm quietly optimistic.

Microsoft published titles stay for good so I think those 3 are safe.

Correct. I was nearly at the end of Strider when that was pulled and the game will no longer start up. :x

I don't mind the games going as we get a bit of time to play them. I look through the list and rinse some for easy achievements. For instance, I started Bound with Blood this week and am happy that I will only want to play it for a week or two as it is a middling action RPG. Just want those 110G achievements for killing 150 creatures (very doable)

Wasteland 2 is supposed to be really good as well.

Xbox Game Pass Has a Remarkable First Year Creating New Opportunities for Gamers and Developers

So, how is Game Pass creating new opportunities for both gamers and developers? In its first year, Xbox Game Pass has proven to be great for both gamers and game developers as an additive means to drive discovery and engagement of games. The freedom to explore and play more great games is changing gaming habits in incredibly positive ways.

After joining Xbox Game Pass, Game Pass members are playing more games than ever before — not only games in the Game Pass catalog, but also other Xbox games outside the catalog. As a result, we’re seeing more active players for games across the board, which is having a notable positive impact for our publishers and developers, including increased sales for games in Xbox Game Pass.

It’s also been exciting to see titles in Xbox Game Pass experience revived gaming communities across a variety of genres and franchises. Games in Xbox Game Pass have a longer tail of engagement, sustain their community and help developers connect with new audiences than before. What’s more, those same community members often go on to then try the next major release from those franchises thanks to being introduced to new genres and content they may not have otherwise explored, simply by having unlimited access through the Xbox Game Pass catalog.

Might give KotOR another try. Played it for the first time after Mass Effect to see what all the hype was about and it didn't really do anything for me.

Xbox Game Pass. The Xbox Game Pass catalog continues to expand, with exciting new blockbuster titles available to members starting today, including Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Microsoft also announced several notable titles launching through the ID@Xbox program that will be coming to Xbox Game Pass this year to coincide with their debut on Xbox One. These include Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Ashen, Afterparty and Phoenix Point, as well as blockbusters from some of our biggest first-party franchises such as Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, Gears 5 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will release later in 2018 and beyond.

I think I'll give Elder Scrolls Online a go. Seems okay from what I've seen an heard, and it'll get a bunch of new players starting at the same time thanks to this.

Gamepass is really suited to ESO and The Division, should get numbers up.
