As 2022 draws to a close, it’s time to look forward to what lies ahead. If Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One is your console of choice, there’s plenty to get excited about, with several exclusive consoles and plenty of third-party titles coming to Microsoft’s platforms in 2023 and beyond. Below we highlight the games we’re most anticipating in the new year, from Embark Studios’ Arc Raiders to Outerloop Games’ Thirsty Suitors.
To keep this list manageable, I’ll stick to the rule that for a game to be included in this list, we must have seen gameplay of it at some point. I’m sure Xbox’s future first-party titles like Avowed and Fable will delight, and there are some great-sounding third-party games on the horizon like Dragon Age: Dreadwolf and Assassin’s Creed Mirage. But for now we’re trying to tame the hype and save our excitement for games where we actually know what the game is like.
Plus, despite this limitation, there are still loads of games to look forward to – too many to list. We had to draw the line somewhere, otherwise this article would never have been finished! From the selected games we have listed them in alphabetical order.
