I absolutely love Game Pass on PC and have played so many great games that I wouldn’t normally have purchased because they didn’t seem like my kinda game. Games like A Plague Tale, The Gunk, Hades, The Medium, and a ton of others. Unfortunately, Game Pass isn’t the most reliable service, even though it is exceptionally good value. Why?

Game Pass on PC relies quite a lot on other Windows services to work, the Xbox app, Windows Updates, The Microsoft Store and a background service called Gaming services. All it takes is for one of these services to have issues and Game Pass starts to have major issues. Over the last few months, we’ve covered a ton of different Game Pass issues, from initial setup problems to game removal, problems downloading and installing games and a ton of different error codes. If you plan on using Game Pass long term, I suggest bookmarking our Game Pass guide collection.

The most common issue to date is the inability to uninstall certain games installed using Game Pass and the Xbox app fully. For instance, you may have installed Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, finished playing it, then uninstalled it using the Xbox app, only to notice that the entire 30GB installation worth is space is still being used on your drive.

The worst part is that this can and does happen with multiple games so you may install 5 games and have all 5 removed in the same manner, which will leave your computer with no space… Thankfully, there are quite a few different things you can do to get the space back from a broken Game Pass uninstallation. These methods will work for all Game Pass games.

Use Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age from the Microsoft Store instead. Install, Uninstall & Update.

Another option you can try using is the Microsoft Store. Some games that are listed on the Microsoft Store can be updated, installed and uninstalled directly from the Store rather than the Xbox app, which, in a lot of cases prevents or solves issues. Just make sure that you are signed into the Microsoft Store app with the account that holds your Game Pass subscription.

  • First, open the Microsoft Store, then click the Library icon in the bottom left-hand corner.
  • Next, change to the Games tab and you will see all the games installed on your computer from the Microsoft Store and Xbox app.
  • Next to Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, you should see an Update icon. If you don’t, there might not be a game update. So double-check there is actually a new version out. Click Update and the update will start. Most Game Pass PC game updates are quite big so expect it to take some time to complete. You can do the same using the Uninstall option if you wish to remove the game.
  • If you want to install or uninstall something just find the corresponding entry.

If you don’t have another drive to allocate fully to games you can always create a partition on your current drive. Just set aside some storage space, I would try to set at least 150GB aside to account for the biggest games on Game Pass. You don’t want to have to redo a partition down the track. It’s an annoying process.

A separate partition will allow you to format it regularly without having to worry about the other stuff on your computer. This game removal issue isn’t just a Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age issue, it can happen with any game on Game Pass.
