Microsoft reveals all the launch games for the Xbox Series consoles

Many pre-existing games will be getting enhancement patches

Microsoft has dropped the full list of games coming to both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S when they launch next month.

The games were revealed in a new Xbox Wire post, which outlined not only the list of launch titles, but also Xbox One games that will have a next-gen upgrade available through Smart Delivery.

Thirty games headline the list, with 20 being made playable through the Xbox’s Smart Delivery function. The tech giant has described the launch line-up as “a creative, diverse and deep collection of iconic, inventive, and critically-acclaimed games from amazing creators around the world”.


Outside of the day one titles, multiple other games will also be coming in the weeks after launch. The Xbox Series console exclusive The Medium has been confirmed for December 10, and Bungie has announced that Destiny 2’s next-gen upgrade will be arriving on December 8.

Halo Infinite was intended to be the big game to usher in the company’s latest systems, however, the title was later delayed after its initial reveal caused critical backlash over the game’s performance and graphics.

Microsoft also recently delved into the backwards compatibility features for both consoles, highlighting how older titles will look and perform better on the new systems.
