When do Xbox Games with Gold change?

Xbox tends to announce its upcoming free games just a few days before the offer goes live. Unlike the PS Plus games that can come at anytime in the first week of the month, Games with Gold has a much stricter format.

On the 1st of each month, two games - one for just the Xbox One and one for the Xbox 360 (backwards compatible with the Xbox One) - are made available. The Xbox One game is available to download until the end of the month, while the Xbox 360 game is available for just 15 days, until the 15th.

This is then followed up by two more games following the same format on the 16th of the month. The Xbox One game will stay available until the 15th of the following month, while the Xbox 360 game will leave the service at the end of the month.
