Xbox 360 Marketplace Purge Sees Dark Souls, The Witcher 2, and More Removed Next Week
Microsoft has announced that 46 games will be removed from the Xbox 360 marketplace on February 7, including Dark Souls, The Witcher 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and more.
As reported by Game Informer, Xbox has shared the list of endangered games on its official support website, although it varies slightly from region to region.
Disc versions of these games will remain playable, and previously downloaded copies can also be played. Gematsu has also confirmed that versions of these games available for download on Xbox One or Xbox Series consoles will also remain on those respective stores.

Microsoft has made dozens of Xbox 360 games available on its latest consoles, although it has confirmed that no other titles will be backwards compatible in the future. However, those who still own an Xbox 360 should use the next few days to make sure they’ve purchased games from this list, as this will be the last chance to do so digitally.
