Microsoft’s got a heck of a console with the Xbox Series X. The hardware is impressive, while the Xbox Live and Game Pass ecosystem is a foundation that has been solidified over several years of development and fine-tuning.
What the Xbox Series X truly needs though, is a line-up of games that will be system-sellers. Whereas Sony has built up a reputation over this last console generation as the platform for first-party titles, Microsoft’s line-up has been sporadic at best on that front.
That all changed several years ago when Team Green went on a buying spree, snapping up more than a dozen studios and tasking them with creating the games that would define Xbox in the 2020s.
After years of waiting, it’s finally time to see what Xbox has in store come the end of the year. Here’s everything being announced tonight, so hit F5 to stay updated as we add more content to this post over the next hour!
