August 30, 2020 7:17 pm

Each passing day reveals valuable information on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, But even then, the companies have revealed nothing about their price or the date of reveal. Instead, fans have been saturated with information regarding the software of the consoles.

The Xbox Series X sites a lot of power and graphics to support bigger and heavier games than its predecessor. The list of the number of games the console supports is pretty long, but most remain rumors. However, even those rumors sound invigorating.

Xbox Series X: Upcoming titles

343 Industries, just a couple of weeks ago, announced that their much-awaited title ‘Halo Infinite’ won’t be releasing this year, a decision that was taken keeping in mind the global scenario.

This means that Xbox Series X exclusives might need more time in the oven and can be expected sometime next year.

The following is a list of games that includes titles that have been confirmed and others that are rumored to come out in a couple of years.

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Bright Memory Infinite

Rumored Releases

Battlefield 6 and Elder Scrolls 6 have announced nothing yet. Battlefield 5 was centered on World War II, but a timeline for the next title hasn’t been revealed.

Bethesda revealed a couple of years ago that it had already started working on a new title for its beloved franchise. But, considering how inactive they have been with updates, it might need more time than expected.

The previous title was an astounding success, selling over 30 million copies. Reportedly, Bethesda might be going in for a 2021 release.

Other titles like ‘As Dusk Falls’, ‘Everwild’ and ‘Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2’ won’t be releasing soon. But a 2021 window of release is expected.

Microsoft has confirmed ‘Backwards Compatability’

While the exclusives might take more time, Microsoft has enabled backward compatibility. This will enable the players to get their hands on titles that released for previous consoles. But these will feature enhanced visuals and graphics for Xbox Series X.

Phil Spencer, the Vice-President of Gaming at Microsoft revealed a few weeks ago that backwards compatibility will air with the launch of Xbox Series X this holiday season.

This means that a lot of titles will be available on the horizon. While we might have to wait for a few months for exclusives, first-party Xbox One games will still be playable.
