The Microsoft concern has started the new, ninth generation of consoles with … no games exclusive to the Xbox Series X / S. Halo Infinite had the best chance of release, but all interested players know how it ended (and if they don't, then after the show the disappointment was so great that it was decided to delay the launch of the space shooter). Nevertheless, even before the release of new consoles, Microsoft announced real news as part of the Xbox Games Showcase in July 2020. New Fable, often referred to as Skyrim of the next generation RPG Avowed by Obsidian Entertainment or State of Decay 3. There was also a new trailer for Everwild from the creators of Sea of Thieves and Banjo-Kazooie, which is supposed to be something unique (and it looks like it on the trailer). Only they were announced too soon …
According to unofficial reports, we will wait a few more years for the premiere of such games as Fable, Avowed, Everwild and Perfect Dark. Although work on some titles is advanced, it is still far from complete – it was simply announced by Microsoft too soon.
At least that's what Christopher Dring, the editor of GamesIndustry.biz, says in the VGC podcast. He spoke to his sources at Xbox Game Studios, and they say development on games such as Fable, Everwild and Perfect Dark is far from complete. The same is likely to be true of Avowed, State of Decay 3, and perhaps to a lesser extent Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga. Some games have been developed for several years (Avowed, Fable or the continuation of Ninja Theory production), it cannot be denied that many of them are so complex that hardly anyone expected them sooner than at the end of 2022 – and this at best. Unofficial reports are not surprising, especially since some of the trailers do not show any gameplay (Fable, State of Decay 3 or Perfect Dark), so it was rather to be expected.
Microsoft apparently did not draw conclusions from the decisions of other companies and wanted to show players what they can expect in the future on the Xbox Series X / S (and PC and possibly Xbox One) to encourage them to buy a new console. Except that Chris Dring even joked that by the time they come out, there might be another … Xbox. This doesn't mean Microsoft won't be offering other games in the next two years. Psychonauts 2 is coming, although it's a rather niche title and will also be available on PlayStation 4. According to rumors, this year's Forza Horizon 5 and Starfield from Bethesda may be released, and next year the new Forza Motorsport should also arrive. Hellblade 2, which seems to be the least extensive production of those listed, has the best chance for a quick debut. Avowed is also in development for a few years, so the premiere in 2023 seems to be achieved by the authors of Pillars of Eternity and The Outer Worlds. To fill the publishing calendar, Microsoft wants to sign temporary exclusivity contracts – supposedly Hideo Kojima's new game is in the spotlight.
