Indication for Games Removed from Game Pass Catalogue
Have some way of indicating that a game installed on my hard drive(s) is no longer part of the Game Pass catalogue, especially if I don't own it another way - i.e. I don't have the licence to play it if I try to boot it up.

Send me a monthly report. Hey, send it on that new game pass app?
List titles leaving the catalog that I have ever or currently do have on HDD in descending order with exact days. I include those I've downloaded in the past because I along with many I shuffle my hard disk all too often. This has lead me to put a few longer titles on hiatus with only an evening or two left and after campaigning through a AAA a great deal of endgame is left "for another day".
In these cases it becomes simply frustrating.
Similar to the feature we want which can easily identify which games installed see via Gamespass. These are simple things! Come on now...
Have the game show up with a colored border and a counter in the top right corner showing the days left in GAME PASS. this would easily highlight games leaving and also show how long they have left.
Amber 30-10 days remaining
red less than 10
Very much needed but to go a little further on this idea not only tell me that the game has left gamepass when i try too start the game. But also have a section in the game pass App and also in the microsoft store of games leaving gamepass in the next 30 days
I agree with mizitch. Fade out. Add red border, maybe overlay a symbol. Opening should bring to a store page to buy that makes it clear it has been removed from the Game Pass library.

This could probably be expanded to everything. If there are any games installed I don't have the license to play, like after a free play weekend, or my gold has expired, or it is no longer in games pass, indicate that visually somehow.
I would really like a badge or something that goes on any of the Game Pass games installed that shows up in say the upper right corner of the game art that indicates that it will be leaving Game Pass soon. Maybe a 10-14 day warning.
Or fade the icons out so it's apparent that they're installed but you no longer have an active license to play them. Would do this with also with GWG and EA Access.

Show expiration date for Game Pass titles when it is available (preferably before the usual ~14 days before).
