Microsoft has confirmed it has put a bunch of Xbox 360 games on the chopping block for its Xbox Games Pass service.

May 31 will see a total of 21 games leaving the streaming service, only two of which are for the Xbox One. The rest are for Microsoft's last-generation machine, and include a number of high-profile titles such as BioShock, Borderlands, and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.

It's worth mentioning that third-party software never stick around permanently, although this is perhaps the biggest cull we've seen since Xbox Games Pass first launched. Have a butcher's at the full list of departing games below.

Xbox One: Blood Bowl 2, Defense Grid 2

Xbox 360: Age of Booty, Sega Vintage Collection Alex Kidd & Co., Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands, Bound by Flame, de Blob 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dig Dug, Final Fight: Double Impact, Sega Vintage Collection: Golden Axe, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Pac-Man CE DX+, Sacred 3, SoulCalibur, XCOM: Enemy Within.

Speaking of Xbox Games Pass, State of Decay 2 will be launching there day-and-date with its retail counterpart on May 22.
