Xbox Will Release 5 First-Party Games in the Next 12 Months

Xbox says it will release around 5 first-party games in the next year, planning to match or exceed its output in the last 12 months. In a recent press briefing, Microsoft stated that it had released “five new games” across consoles and PC during its last fiscal year, which started on 1 July 2021 and ends on 30 June 2022.

Those last five games were Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Psychonauts 2 and Age of Empires IV. The company’s next fiscal year is set to begin on 1 July 2022 and end on 30 June 2023. In that period, 5 first-party games will be released under Xbox.

Two exclusives expected to release in that time frame are Bethesda’s Starfield and Redfall, both of which were previously delayed to the first half of 2023. If Microsoft considers “new games” as titles only relevant to Xbox, then it’s possible both Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop will release within the next year too once the exclusivity deals expire with PlayStation.

That leaves one more first-party game to release within the next year. The second half of 2022 is looking empty for Xbox releases, so it’s possible that the company might have an answer to that deserted window. Rumours indicate that we might either see the Gears of War Collection release before the end of 2022, tallying up the total number of releases for the next year to five.

On the off-chance that the Gears of War Collection – a remastered bundle of older games – isn’t seen as “new” by Xbox, then we could also expect that spot to be filled out by numerous other first-party games currently in development, including the next Forza Motorsport, Obsidian’s Avowed or Ninja Theory’s Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga.

Playground Games’ Fable reboot isn’t expected to launch anytime soon, if recent reports about the game’s rocky development are to believed. Whatever comes next for Xbox, the future is looking a bit brighter.
