At this time, there are 8 confirmed games for the Xbox Series X, only 6 have been named. However, considering comments of certain developers on games not yet released, it stands to reason there’s a chance we’ll be seeing these upcoming games on the new console in 2020.
- Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was announced at The Game Awards 2019.
- At E3 2019, Microsoft confirmed that Halo Infinite would be a launch game on the Xbox Series X, which will be released in late 2020.
On October 31st 2019, Ubisoft announced that many of its upcoming titles that were delayed to 2020 will be cross-generation games, and appear on both PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett. These include the following games:
- Watch Dogs Legion
- Rainbow Six Quarantine
- Gods and Monsters
- 2 Unannounced AAA games
- On October 30th, Electronic Arts confirmed that Battlefield 6 will appear on next gen consoles – but only when the a strong player base has already been established.
- Given that both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 have been barely announced and are still early in the development, it is likely both of these games will comes to Xbox Series X.
- Eden Ring, published by Bandai Namco and developed by From Software in collaboration with George R. R. Martin was shown at E3 2019 with no release date, making it likely that it may launch sometime in 2020 around the Xbox Series X.
- Cyberpunk 2077 maybe releasing earlier in 2020 than the planned release date of the new console, but a game of that size is likely to drastically improve in load times, framerate, and other capabilities when bolstered by the next gen console.
