The Octopath Traveler games will leave Xbox and PC Game Pass in January 2026. That means Game Pass subscribers have one year and seven months to complete both Octopath 1 & 2.

Usually, the Xbox Game Pass official X(formally Twitter) account will notify users when a game is leaving the service two weeks before it becomes unavailable.
