Fifteen games are leaving Apple Arcade ‘soon’

As noted by MacRumors, Apple Arcade will be losing 15 games in the near future, according to a new section in the Arcade area of the App Store titled “Leaving Arcade Soon.” 

The departing games are: Projection: First Light; Lifeslide; Various Daylife; Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree; Over the Alps; Dread Nautical; Cardpocalypse; Towaga: Among Shadows; Dead End Job: Don’t Bug Me!; Spelldrifter; Spidersaurs; Expolottens; and BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner.

From MacRumors: This isn’t the first time Apple has removed a title from Arcade, but it has not previously officially revealed which games are leaving and in such large numbers.

As noted by MacRumors sister site TouchArcade, Apple doesn’t explain what happens to the games that are exiting the service, leaving players unsure about what will happen to their save data. Whether the games will transition to a premium or free release, or be delisted altogether, is also unclear.

Apple Arcade is Apple’s U.S.$4.99/month or $49.99/year game streaming service that has over 200 games. Apple Arcade is also available as part of the Apple One bundle.
