A new month is fast approaching, and that means there’ll be some additions to Xbox Game Pass for May 2022, including new games coming to the subscription service, and some being removed.
There are over 100 stellar games on Game Pass already, but that doesn’t stop a wide variety of games being brought to both consoles and PC in this next month, as per Microsoft’s usual ways. We’re especially looking forward to the day one release of Trek To Yomi and older games like Sniper Elite 5. These titles add to some that have launched in the last week of April, like the long-awaited Bugsnax. These will more than make up for any games being removed from the service.
Here is everything we've seen so far for May 2022 on Xbox Game Pass. If that’s not enough gaming for you, then check out our PlayStation Now roundup for May, too.

When Will Xbox Game Pass May 2022 Be Announced?
Xbox doesn’t announce all their games ahead of a month’s Game Pass roster, they tend to be drip-fed across a few weeks. Keep an eye on their Twitter page, as this is where a lot of their announcements are made. It’s likely that we’ll get some more news in the first few days of May as to what else is coming to the service.
