Banned Xbox One Users Will Still Have Access to Game Library

by on June 17, 2013

The other day, an Xbox Support Twitter account was asked whether being banned from Xbox Live would also see a user losing access to their game library. Xbox Support said that licenses would be forfeited, in this instance.

However, in a recent interview with Reddit (via Joystiq), when Xbox’s Director of Programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb was asked a similar question, he said that this isn’t the case:

“Absolutely not, you will always have access to the games you purchased.”

The Major stated that users who are banned will only have to worry about losing access to multiplayer features in games.

As has been the case with this entire launch, it’s difficult to know which side is more informed. Their messaging continues to lack clarity, sadly.
