    Games Disappearing on Xbox for PC

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    If the game didn't install properly, or stopped for a time it would uninstall itself. This has been in effect for a while. Same as if you stop an installation, or pause it. After a while it will uninstall to protect from corruption. All you need to do is install again. Make sure you do not pause or stop it.

    There really is no way to know to know for sure. Maybe the games tried to update and the update failed so they were removed from the PC.
    Hi, I understand but I'd been playing this game perfectly fine up until today, and yet it still uninstalled itself, A failed update is the only option here that seems possible, but it seems a very bad system to have to completely reinstall a game because of a failed update, particularly for very large games.

    Xbox PC game disappeared

    cancelling gamepass games and windows games updates on windows acts like it does on console, it will remove the entire game as it cannot verify the files that have partially been updated, it does not work like all the other launchers. you basically have to reinstall the entire game again. yes it is a royal pain but there is an update coming sometime next year to resolve this problem.

    Ubisoft servers and trials fusion?

    I wish Uplay would just disappear. It does nothing but get in the way, both on console and on PC (it's even worse on PC).
