New Xbox Series X console revealed

Microsoft has finally released the full list of launch titles coming to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S next month.

The highly anticipated next-generation consoles are set to hit shelves on 10 November 2020.

While many of the games coming to the Xbox Series consoles were announced earlier in the year, a new Xbox Wire blogpost details the full list of available launch games for the first time.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of several games coming to next-gen consoles in time for launch

The post also listed which Xbox One games will be the first to receive a next-generation upgrade via Xbox’s Smart Delivery service.

Described as “the largest launch lineup in Xbox history”, the 30-game list is comprised of 10 next-gen originals and 20 Smart Delivery offers, as well as “thousands” of backwards-compatible games from the Xbox back catalogue.

The only major omission from the list is the forthcoming first-person shooter Halo Infinite

Originally planned as the console’s flagship launch title, Halo Infinite was postponed until next year due to development complications stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

In the days after the next-gen consoles launch, a number of other high-profile games are also set to be released, including Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War (on 13 November) and Cyberpunk 2077 (on 19 November).
