The Culling was delisted from Xbox One on September 13th, 2018 according to reporting by On September 14th, the Steam version of the game transitioned to a free-to-play model, now known as The Culling: Origins.

In a Steam Community forum post preceding these changes, Xaviant addressed the Xbox One version specifically, stating that “we don’t have a firm date yet but we’re working to get the update to Xbox players ASAP. There is custom work required to support free-to-play on Xbox One as well as a certification process that must be passed. We’ll let you know when we have a better estimate”.

These changes to the original game came about following the disastrous launch and subsequent delisting of The Culling 2. A year and a half later, The Culling: Origins would pivot again, changing to a pay-per-play model and finally reappearing on Xbox One under the listing for The Culling. Given the changes, we are not currently considering this a relisting of The Culling but wanted to convey the next chapter in the series’ story here.
