Madden and Gundam lead the Xbox Game Pass games for February 2023

Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Pass games for February 2023, and while the lineup is a bit slim, there are some heavy hitters in the mix. Leading the pack, and just in time for Super Bowl LVII, is Madden NFL 23 for console and PC. Mech-loving folks can get their hands on Gundam, and you can plan the city of your dreams – or everyone else’s nightmares – in Cities Skylines.

As always, the new month’s releases are staggered across a week.

These three go live on Feb. 9, 2023.

  • Madden NFL 23 (console and PC via EA Play)
  • SD Gundam Battle Alliance  (console and PC)
  • Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord (cloud, console, and PC)

On Feb. 15, 2023, you can grab Cities Skylines – Remastered via the cloud and Xbox Series S. Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition lands on Feb. 16, 2023, for cloud, console, and PC, and on Feb. 21, 2023, you can play Atomic Heart for cloud, console, and PC.

A handful of games are leaving Game Pass on Feb. 15, 2023.

  • Besiege 
  • CrossfireX 
  • Infernax 
  • Recompile
  • Skul: The Hero Slayer 
  • The Last Kids on Earth 

Xbox and Tango Gameworks surprise-released Hi-Fi Rush in January after the Developer_Direct conference, but it looks like February will be a lighter month for releases on the Series X|S, at least from Microsoft studios.
