What’s in Store: Upcoming Game Releases for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One


As Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S celebrates its third-year anniversary, it’s clear that the platform is slowly but steadily turning into a powerhouse. Gone are the days when consoles were just finding their footing in the first half of their lifespan. The Xbox Series X/S is on the verge of that pivotal moment where cross-gen games stop being a priority, and the focus shifts to taking full advantage of the platform’s capabilities.

“Consoles typically do not start to flourish until the latter half of their existence, once cross-gen stops being a priority and developers can focus exclusively on crafting projects for only the most modern systems.”

The Year of Stellar Games: A Recap

The previous year was a remarkable one for video games, especially those falling under the open-world genre. Titles like “Elden Ring,” “Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga,” “A Plague Tale: Requiem,” and “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands” have not only been good but also offer an eclectic mix of experiences. This year is no exception. From “Dead Space” to “Street Fighter 6,” the Xbox Series X/S continues to enrich its library.

“2022 produced many stellar games, particularly in the open-world genre. Elden Ring, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands are all good or great, and they offer wildly different experiences from each other.”

A Peek into the Future: What’s Coming Next?

As we inch closer to the end of 2023, the gaming calendar for Xbox Series X/S is filling up. While it’s unlikely that any more major announcements will be made for November or December, several titles were recently added to the schedule. Among these are “Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash,” “Strategic Mind: Spirit of Liberty,” and “Frog Detective: The Entire Mystery.”

“Updated October 18, 2023: Slowly but surely, 2023 is coming to an end, and that means most of the year’s Xbox releases have been announced by this point.”

October’s Rich Line-Up: A Month to Remember

October 2023 has not been a slouch when it comes to game releases. “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” kickstarted the month, albeit with some mixed reactions. On the other hand, Forza Motorsport has been a magnet for racing sim fans, seemingly one of the best entries in an already impressive franchise.

“October 2023 is no slouch either. Assassin’s Creed Mirage has started the month in a big but slightly polarizing way, and long-time fans might enjoy the game’s return-to-basics approach. Racing sim fans will naturally gravitate toward Forza Motorsport, which is shaping up to be one of the better entries in a franchise known for excellence.”

Horror aficionados have something to cheer about as well. “Alan Wake 2” has seen an overwhelmingly positive response during its pre-launch phase, promising an immersive experience.

“Even though the original game was a mixed bag, Lords of the Fallen has very little to do with its predecessor beyond sharing a name, and the Soulslike project has been received well enough so far. The month has its horror quota covered with Alan Wake 2, and Remedy’s sequel has garnered almost nothing but positivity during its pre-launch run.”
