Xbox Series X Confirmed Games: Every Game Coming To The New Xbox

The future is bright. And green.

Halo Infinite

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.

Will The Xbox Series X Support Backwards Compatibility?

Street Fighter IV

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.


Will The Xbox Series X Have Game Pass?

Game Pass

Absolutely. Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has become somewhat of a golden goose for Microsoft, with over 10 million Game Pass subscribers.

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.

The Xbox Series X is scheduled to launch in Holiday 2020. Check out some Xbox content below, and then a video after the jump:
