Apple recently shared a list of games that will soon be removed from its Apple Arcade subscription service. On Wednesday, Apple published a new support document explaining what happens when a game is removed from its all-you-can-play Apple Arcade subscription service.
In the document, Apple says that users who download a game before it is officially removed from Apple Arcade can continue to play the game for at least two weeks after:
If a game is leaving Apple Arcade
Games might sometimes leave Apple Arcade. If you download a game before it leaves Arcade, you can play the game for at least two weeks after. If you try to launch an Arcade game that is no longer playable, you receive a No Longer Available message.
After a game leaves Arcade, the game developer might choose to make their game available on the App Store. These games might vary from the Arcade version. If the developer makes their game available on the App Store and allows you to load your saved progress, you can pick up where you left off in the Arcade version.
Once a game is no longer playable, users who attempt to launch an Apple Arcade game that is no longer playable will instead see a “No Longer Available” message.
After a game has been removed from Apple Arcade, developers can choose to make their game available in the App Store for all users. The App Store version may differ from the Apple Arcade version.
Apple recently shared a list of 15 games that will be removed from Apple Arcade soon. The games are:
- Projection: First Light
- Various Daylife
- Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree
- Over the Alps
- Dread Nautical
- Towaga: Among Shadows
- Dead End Job
- Don’t Bug Me!
- BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner
