NBA 2K21, Star Wars: Squadrons, and more are coming to Xbox Game Pass this month

The first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles being added in March

As we start a new month, it's time for a new wave of games to make their way to Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft has announced a handful of them. Most of the lineup announced today is focused on sports titles, and a good part of those comes from Electronic Arts through the EA Play service, which has been included with Xbox Game Pass for console since last year.

The lineup of EA Play titles for March was announced last week, and those are the titles being added to Game Pass as a result. These include Star Wars: Squadrons and Madden NFL 21. Here's the full list of Xbox Game Pass games being added:

  • Madden NFL 21 (Console, EA Play) - Available now
  • Football Manager 2021 (PC) - March 4
  • Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition (Console and PC) - March 4
  • NBA 2K21 (Cloud and console) - March 4
  • Star Wars: Squadrons (Console, EA Play) - March
  • NHL 21 (Console, EA Play) - April

In addition to these new games, Microsoft also mentioned that Cricket 19 is now available on Game Pass for PC and Elite Dangerous is now available on the cloud, after being added to the console variant of Game Pass last month.

Microsoft has also highlighted a few titles that are leaving the service this month, which you may want to check out while you can. Here's the full list:

  • Alvastia Chronicles (Console and PC)
  • Astrologaster (PC)
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Console and PC)
  • Kona (Console)
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Console)

All of these games are leaving Game Pass on March 15, so you only have a few more days to try them out. As a reminder, a few games that were added a couple of weeks ago are still available to play at no additional cost. We should see another wave of games announced in the middle of the month, as per Microsoft's tradition.
