Update: Just when we were thinking about May's games, Xbox dropped a few more for April.
We've updated the lineup below!
Xbox Game Pass is arguably the best deal in gaming, and Microsoft continues to roll out plenty of titles for gamers to jump into every month.
Last month we had Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, The Falconeer, Jurassic World: Evolution and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age.
Here's everything we know about the new games coming in April as well as everything we know about those being removed from the service.

When Will Xbox Game Pass April 2021 Games Be Announced?
Games are often teased, if not outright announced, at the beginning of the month – meaning it's likely we could hear something in the first few days of April 2021.
Xbox Game Pass often gets more than one update, so while we expect an update early in the month, don't rule out even more games being added in the days and weeks that follow.
