As the Xbox Series X/S slowly approaches its two-year anniversary, Microsoft’s platform is gradually amassing a respectable library. Consoles typically do not start to flourish until the latter half of their existence, once cross-gen stops being a priority and developers can focus exclusively on crafting projects for only the most modern systems. The Xbox Series X/S has yet to reach that point, although things are moving in that direction.


So far, 2022 has produced a number of stellar games, particularly in the open-world genre. Elden Ring, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands are all good-to-great, and they offer wildly different experiences from each other. While big releases have slowed down since the end of March, that should change the longer 2022 goes on, with games like Saints Row, Gollum, Gotham Knights, and, Modern Warfare 2 set to drop by the end of the year.

November 2022 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

november 2022 xbox games evil west sonic frontiers call of duty warzone 2

November 2022 has been a solid month for Xbox Series X/S owners thanks to a couple of noteworthy projects. Flying Wild Hog’s Evil West has an awesome Western aesthetic and visceral combat, and it has received decent reviews so far.

Goat Simulator 3 drops players into a sandbox that is built to embrace chaos, and silliness is the name of the game here. Following in the footsteps of the original Goat Simulator, which is still a fun physics-based romp, the sequel looks primed to be bigger and better. Sonic Frontiers has made its long-awaited debut, bringing Sega’s legendary mascot to an open-world setting. The game garnered a mixed reception, although it certainly has its positives.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is Activision’s newest iteration of its battle royale, coming out just a couple of weeks following Modern Warfare 2. Smaller games like Somerville, Pentiment, and Ship of Fools should also not be ignored.

December 2022 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

xbox december 2022 games

The Holiday season launches well before the last month of the year, but December is typically an exciting period in terms of releases. At the moment, a couple of big games have been announced for the end of 2022, including The Callisto Protocol, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion.

These three titles are all highly anticipated and scratch wildly different itches. The Callisto Protocol looks set to be one of the more exciting Xbox games of 2022, and it should fill the horror void until the Dead Space remake launches in January 2023. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG by the developer behind the XCOM games, which should, at the bare minimum, translate to strong gameplay fundamentals. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion is a remaster of Square Enix’s PSP classic, making the story more widely available to modern audiences.

Hello Neighbor 2 will be making its full release by the end of the year, and the same can be said about Need for Speed Unbound.

  • December 1: Sword of the Vagrant (XBO)
  • December 1: Warp Drive (XBX/S, XBO)
  • December 2: The Callisto Protocol (XBX/S)
  • December 2: Marvel’s Midnight Suns (XBX/S, XBO)
  • December 2: Need for Speed Unbound (XBX/S)
  • December 5: Swordship (XBX/S, XBO)
  • December 6: Firefighting Simulator – The Squad (XBX/S, XBO)
  • December 6: Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr (XBX/S)
  • December 7: Bot Gaiden (XBX/S, XBO)

Major Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games Announced For The Rest Of 2022

disney-speedstorm-new

With each passing day, the likelihood of games tentatively announced for 2022 confirming a release date for this year steadily declines. Technically, Disney Speedstorm, AEW Fight Forever, and Instinction could still debut before January 2023, but it is better to assume that any project without an announced date will not be debuting until the next year.

  • Berserk Boy (XBX/S, XBO)
  • Dinos Reborn (XBX/S, XBO)
  • Disney Speedstorm (XBX/S, XBO)

January 2023 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

xbox january 2023 games persona spongebob dead space

January 2023’s opening two weeks lack much in the way of games; however, the month should pick up momentum as it goes along. Anime fans can look forward to Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot on the Xbox Series X/S. People who own the Xbox One version will receive a free current-gen upgrade. One Piece Odyssey will also be coming out on the same day as DBZ.

Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable have been confirmed for not only Xbox hardware but also Game Pass. Persona 5 Royal was the first title in the series to make the jump to a Microsoft system, and it will not be the last. While not as visually impressive as their successor, P4G and P3P are nevertheless highly regarded turn-based JRPGs with fantastic stories.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is a 3D platformer starring Nickelodeon’s icon, and the game is developed by the same company behind Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. The biggest release of January 2023 is undoubtedly the Dead Space remake, developed by Motive Studio. This project will be the first entry in the series in almost a decade.

February 2023 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

February 2023 Xbox Series X & Xbox One Games

A number of big titles have been confirmed for February 2023, and the month will hit the ground running. Deliver Us the Moon‘s sequel, Deliver Us Mars, looks primed to be a fascinating sci-fi adventure, and the game was delayed from a planned September 2022 debut. Hogwarts Legacy is one of the standout games of 2023’s early months, allowing fans of Harry Potter to step into this universe as they become wizards and witches.

Soleil’s Wanted: Dead should be on the radar for hack and slash fans, particularly ones fond of the developer’s previous titles like Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time and Valkyrie Elysium. Tales of Symphonia Remastered will be making its way to last-gen consoles, and it is generally considered to be among the strongest entries in the action JRPG franchise.

Originally released in 2014 in Japan, Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin! will be making its way to Western nations in the form of a remake called Like a Dragon: Ishin! This spin-off recasts Yakuza‘s characters as samurai. February 2023 should end on a high note with Destiny 2‘s next expansion, Lightfall.

Major Xbox Games In Development With No Release Year Or A Post-January 2023 Estimation

- beyond good evil 2, outer worlds 2, hellblade 2

“Coming soon” can mean anything from a few months to a couple of years. Beyond Good and Evil 2, Diablo 4, Dragon Age 4, and Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 are all in development, but players will have to wait patiently to learn when these games will be made available to play. Projects like the new Bungie IP are still a long way off from becoming a reality; however, at least the studios have confirmed they are working on them.

There are so many exciting announced projects that will eventually come to the Xbox Series X/S, some of which have revealed very little information about themselves. Alan Wake 2, The Elder Scrolls 6, Kingdom Hearts 4, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are all highly-anticipated titles that could still be a long way off from becoming a reality, and these projects are just the tip of the iceberg.

Rumored Xbox Games

Just because a project has not been officially announced doesn’t mean it cannot be discussed. Some rumored games, such as Gears 6, should happen sooner or later.

All these games are suspect to speculation and nothing more. Therefore, they should all be taken with a grain of salt.
