    Contrast is a fun, creative game by Compulsion Games, a Microsoft studio. I didn't realize it wasn't already on Game Pass.


    Some of the games that are leaving Game Pass are notable. Control, The Medium, and The Falconeer are all exiting Game Pass and I find it interesting that Amazon Luna recently picked up Control Ultimate Edition (it previously had the standard version of Control) and will be adding The Medium to the Luna+ library this month. The Falconeer is already on Luna. Amazon also added Yakuza 0 around the time it left Game Pass.


    Games bouncing around to different subscription services is going to become more common, I think, and one of the clearest reasons for Microsoft to bolster a first party library of exclusive games for Game Pass.
