You may have noticed recently that some New codes It’s starting to appear as part of the My Games & Apps library on Xbox, and there’s clearly been some confusion in recent days and weeks about what exactly it means.
Specifically, there is Two symbols Which is discussed privately. The first is the disk icon shown below, which means just what you would expect The game requires a disc to run. The other is Warning symbolwhich basically means that for some reason, You may not have a license to access the content.
These codes (or “badges”) were first released to Xbox Insiders almost a year ago! Here is the proof:
The warning icon is strange because many people have seen it appear in games we didn’t expect. In the example at the beginning of the article, we have Mafia: Definitive Edition on disc, but the warning sign appears anyway. In other words, it doesn’t seem to be entirely accurate.
In theory, it should appear in Games that have left Xbox Game Pass, for example, or which are not yet released but you have already installed previously. Some have reported a warning icon appearing in all of their games, which is clearly just a bug and something you shouldn’t worry about.
Xbox Alpha & Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders: Today we start testing new badges that will tell you if a game won’t launch because a disc isn’t inserted or you don’t have a license for other reasons (for example, a game left Game Pass, and you’re not signed in).

So this is it! There’s a good chance you’ve been seeing it for a while if you’re part of the Xbox Insider program, but others are just getting access to it. Nothing to worry about…they’re just a simple UI improvement!
