This process should work for future builds as well as this is a standard process to remove metro apps since Windows 8.

Disclaimer: This should be a relatively simple removal of two Metro apps but I have not fully tested this and it could cause issues within Windows.

  1. Start an Administrative Powershell window
  2. Run the command 'Get-AppxPackage | Select Name,PackageFullname' (This will list installed Metro apps displaying the Name and PackageFullname needed to uninstall)
  3. Locate the two Xbox packages (Microsoft.XboxLIVEGames and Microsoft.XboxApp)
  4. Copy the 'PackageFullname' from one of these
  5. Type 'Remove-AppXPackage <PackageFullname>' (replace <PackageFullname> with the text you copied from the list) and hit enter
  6. Repeat step 4 & 5 for the other Xbox metro app
  7. Reboot and the Xbox integration will be gone from Full screen games and the Start menu
