If you are trying to install or update Final Fantasy XIII-2 on Game Pass PC or have already finished playing it and would like to uninstall FF13-2. This article will show you how to troubleshoot update, installation and uninstallation problems that are known issues with Final Fantasy XIII-2 on Game Pass.
Game Pass PC is my favourite gaming service at the moment which is surprising because I’ve always been a huge fan of Steam. However, you can’t deny the fact that Game Pass is super good value, has a ton of different games on offer, with a list that seems to grow faster than you can finish games. With over 100 games to choose from, Game Pass is a no-brainer. A one-month subscription is cheaper than buying any single game outright.
As most people who use Game Pass on PC already know, the Xbox app and the Microsoft Store app on both Windows 10 and 11 are useless. We’ve all had more problems with Game Pass than decades of Steam use. The worst part is that all these issues are universal and affect every Game on Game Pass, including Final Fantasy XIII-2.
So how exactly do you Update Final Fantasy XIII-2 on Game Pass? Final Fantasy XIII-2 won’t update on Game pass.
For whatever reason, some Game Pass games won’t update automatically in the Xbox App. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is one of them. So you’ll need to do the following to manually force an update.
- First, open the Microsoft Store app, 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 the game you want to update, you should see an Update icon. If you don’t the 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 game updates are quite big so expect it to take some time to complete.

Game Pass really is that annoying. We’ve listed the options in order of ease so work your way down the list. Be aware that games sometimes remove from the catalogue but the space on your drive stays used.

Try using the Microsoft Store to Install or Uninstall Final Fantasy XIII-2.
The second best option and one of the easiest methods is to use the Microsoft Store, find Final Fantasy XIII-2 in the list of installed games, then click the Uninstall option. This should allow you to remove the game from your device fully. However if it doesn’t, which is a likely scenario you’ll need to try the next option below. As long as you are signed in with the Microsoft account that you have your Game Pass sub on. This method will work perfectly.
If you have installed Final Fantasy XIII-2 on a secondary drive. Try unplugging it then plugging it in again.
The third option is to physically unplug the drive where the games are installed on your computer. If you have the option that is. Disconnect the SATA and power cables. Wait about a minute then reconnect the drive to your computer. Once the drive reappears you should be able to manually delete the files from the installation location using File Explorer. Just be aware that this method does come with the potential to corrupt or damage other data on the drive, however, I’ve used it quite a few times and never had an issue. But it’s still important to mention it.
Format your drive to uninstall Final Fantasy XIII-2 from Game Pass.
The final option is a 100% working solution but it can be quite a time-consuming process depending on how your computer is configured. The simple answer is to format the drive by right-clicking it and selecting Format from the list of options. Now, this isn’t going to be possible for everyone, as you may have Windows installed on your drive and only have one drive in your computer.
This will wipe the drive clean and remove everything on it. If you have a secondary hard drive I would suggest setting this as your Game Pass games drive so that you can format it quickly and easily in the future Game Pass is notorious for storage issues.
