Upcoming Xbox games: What’s coming soon on Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One

All the games you will be able to play on the Microsoft console

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S play host to a lot of new games.

It was the time that gamers lived for late last year as we got a brand new generation of gaming with the release of both the Xbox Series X and the PS5 – if you were able to get hold of either of course as demand far exceeds supply.


But those who were able to buy one have been enjoying the incredibly powerful Xbox Series X for some time now and the improved graphics and loading times, amongst many things that it has at its disposal.

And now the console is out, it is all about the games that we will be able to play on it and there is a lot in the pipeline – even if many of the big hitters are still awaiting a release date.

Here are all the games with confirmed dates for release on the Xbox Series X so far.
