The List of Xbox Series X Launch Games Isn’t As Good As You Hoped

Let’s just say that we’ve seen better day-one launch lineups

With just a month to go before the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S officially launch, Microsoft has finally announced its list of day-one launch games along with cross-gen releases. The full list also include games that support Smart Delivery – games that will be upgraded for free to next-gen hardware – and what games will be available on Xbox Games Pass.

It should be noted that this list doesn’t include any brand-new first-party Xbox Games, but it does mark the arrival of Gears Tactics to console after its PC release earlier in 2020. Console exclusives like Tetris Effect: Connected and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, but these games are available on current-gen platforms – they just won’t be available on the PlayStation 5 until mid-2021. In addition, you can count on all the games currently available on Xbox Games Pass unless Microsoft adds or removes titles between now and launch day.
