However, other games that have a February 1 release date, according to the Microsoft Store PC app (and not included in our original article), are actually leaving. Nowhere Prophet, Xeno Crisis, Cyber Shadow and Prison Architect – all of which showed a February 1 date on the PC Store app – have now been announced as leaving Xbox Game Pass soon, so it looks like some of the dates listed on the Store PC app could still be accurate, although we can’t confirm this for sure – they could just point to the end of a sale.
