As the Xbox Series X/S enters its third year, 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.

2022 produced many 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 slowed down a bit after the end of March, things started to pick up again in September and October with A Plague Tale: Requiem, Persona 5 Royal, Overwatch 2, Modern Warfare 2, and Grounded​​​​​.

What Xbox games are coming soon? Which titles are expected to drop after 2023? Please note that the focus is on the North American release dates of Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One games. Expansions will also be listed.

Updated August 2, 2023: The upcoming Xbox games were introduced to the scheduler over the last week: Demonic Supremacy, Simon The Sorcerer Origins, El Paso, Elsewhere, Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, Paperman: Adventure Delivered, Truck Driver: The American Dream, Broforce Forever, Double Dragon Advance, Super Double Dragon, Whispike Survivors - Sword of the Necromancer, Death Becomes You, WildTrax Racing, World Soccer Pinball, Bright Lights of Svetlov, Quantum: Recharged, Days of Doom, Terminator: Resistance - Complete Edition, Save Koch, Final Fantasy 14.

August 2023 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

August 2023 Xbox Series X & Xbox One Games 

August 2023 has a couple of noteworthy releases that Xbox fans can sink their teeth into. Deck13's Atlas Fallen might not be as massive of a title as Diablo 4 or Starfield, but the action RPG could prove to be a fun surprise. The developer is primarily known for The Surge, two Soulslikes that are generally respected. Atlas Fallen seems set to be a departure from these sorts of games, offering a more accessible and fast-paced experience.

EA's Immortals of Aveum is a first-person shooter revolving around magic instead of guns. The single-player title has produced a couple of captivating trailers that showcase its explosive and stylish combat system, all the while providing a glimpse into the world and story. Toward the end of August, FromSoftware will release Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, a highly-anticipated sequel in the publisher's long-running mecha franchise. While the company is nowadays primarily known for creating Soulslikes, Armored Core has a substantial fanbase in its own right.

September 2023 Xbox Series X/S & Xbox One Games

september 2023 games xbox starfield lies of p cyberpunk 2077 phantom liberty cropped

While August 2023 has its share of big names, the month's successor is on a whole other level. September starts with arguably the biggest RPG of 2023: Starfield. Bethesda's sci-fi epic has been highly anticipated for years, and the project will be launching immediately on Xbox Game Pass. Utilizing procedurally generated content, the title supposedly features more than a thousand planets.

Starfield will dominate the discourse for most of September and, perhaps, the rest of the year, but it is hardly the month's only noteworthy name. The Crew Motorfest could be a fun open-world racer akin to something like Forza Horizon; for those who prefer a kart racer, Disney Speedstorm will be free-to-play from September 28. Following a well-received demo, Lies of P is shaping up to be a special entry in the Soulslike subgenre.

Mortal Kombat 1 should keep fighting fans busy for a while as they get to experience NetherRealm Studios' newest timeline in the legendary franchise. First-person shooter fans who wish to pull off a few heists with some friends can turn to Payday 3, which will be huge if it is anywhere close to as successful as its predecessor. CD Projekt Red will be releasing the Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077.

Major Xbox Games In Development With No Release Year Or A Post-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, 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.

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. The Elder Scrolls 6, Kingdom Hearts 4, and Ark 2 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

rumored xbox series x and xbox one 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.
