The next console generation is looming over the horizon, as both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are scheduled to launch this holiday season, pending any potential delays due to “The Event” anyway. For a while, we’ve heard more about the Xbox’s hardware, but as we near launch, we’re finally hearing more about the games we’ll see on the Xbox Series X.
There’s been plenty of certainties regarding what games we’ll see on the new hardware, including titles like Halo Infinite, along with updated versions of games such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Gears 5. We can also speculate on potential sequels such as a new Fable game and maybe a new Killer Instinct. Yes, that is just wishful thinking on Ash’s behalf.
With that in mind, we’re compiling a database of all the confirmed Xbox Series X games we can expect on the new console. Naturally, we’ll update the list once more games have been confirmed.
While there’s a few gems to sink your teeth into here, we obviously don’t have the full extent of what games we can expect on the Xbox Series X. More games will be announced over the coming months, though for now, we know there’s plenty of Ubisoft games coming to the next generation of hardware.
Expected Xbox Series X Games
Here’s a list of games we expect to see available on the Xbox Series X:
Apex Legends Call of Duty: Warzone Cyberpunk 2077 DOOM Eternal eFootball PES 2021 Fortnite Forza Horizon 4 Gears 5 GTA V Halo: The Master Chief Collection Madden NFL 21 Marvel’s Avengers Minecraft Minecraft Dungeons
Mortal Kombat 11 NBA 2K21 NHL 21 Overwatch 2 Red Dead Redemption 2 Resident Evil 3 Remake Skull & Bones
Will The Xbox Series X Support Backwards Compatibility?
The short answer: yes.
The long answer: Microsoft have fully committed themselves to cross-compatibility across all four generations of consoles, so players will be able to play original Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games on the Xbox Series X.
Currently, Microsoft have put the backwards compatibility program on hold, as they attempt to ensure that all current games that are compatible with the Xbox One will also be compatible with the Series X. Fingers crossed that Microsoft resume the program once the Xbox Series X launches, as there are some cracking titles from previous generations that deserve a new home.
As Xbox Game Studios are prepping to release a host of games on the next generation of hardware, which will all launch onto Xbox Game Pass from day 1, the subscription service is only going to become stronger and stronger.
