15 games you can’t play on Apple Arcade anymore


apple arcade, Apple’s $5-per-month mobile gaming service, added a Leaving Arcade Soon section to its App Store page last month. The category included 15 titles – listed below – which have since been removed from the subscription service. As of August 1, the Leaving Arcade Soon section hasn’t been present on the Apple Arcade page, but if another set of games needs to be cut, we might see it return.

According to Apple’s support page, if you downloaded any of the games before it left Arcade, you can play the game for at least two weeks afterwards. After this time, if you try to launch the downloaded game, you will receive a No longer available message.

Apple Arcade has already removed games from its service, but the new category suggests the service could start rotating its content more consistently. It is unknown why these specific games were removed.

If you haven’t had a chance to play the titles on Apple Arcade, don’t worry: most of them are available on other platforms. Developers can also add older Arcade games to the general App Store, but titles may no longer be free of ads or in-app purchases. You may also be able to import your progress from the Arcade version of the app.

Here are the games that are no longer available on Apple Arcade and where you can find them now:

  • Dread Nautical (Steam, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Epic Games Store)
  • Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree (Steam)
  • Towaga: Among the Shadows (Steam, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One)
  • BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner (currently not available on other platforms)
  • Life Slide (Steam, Epic Games Store)
