Every Game Coming to Xbox Series X

By | October 12, 2020

Last Edited:

The Xbox Series X touts a lot of power to support bigger games than its predecessor. Previously known as Project Scarlett, Xbox Series X has more games announced nearly weekly as the suspected 2020 release date approaches. Below we are keeping an updated list of all the Series X games.

Confirmed Xbox Series X Games

In an interview with the Head of Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty confirmed that during the launch of the Xbox Series X, all of its games will “play up and down that family of devices” – meaning all of the Series X launch games will likely also be playable on the Xbox One and even PC. This means that the Xbox Series X may have no true exclusive games for at least a year or two.

First party games or PC/Series X exclusives will be listed in bold. Games in green will utilize Smart Delivery – letting users who have purchased the title on Xbox One play it on Xbox Series X at no additional cost. You can also find the full list of Smart Delivery games here. Games known to be exclusive to next gen Series X/PS5 will be noted with a † icon

  • While EA has announced Madden NFL 21 to be coming to the Series X with a temporary upgrade plan for those who purchase the game on Xbox One, it has not been confirmed that the same will happen for games like FIFA 21 yet.
  • During EA’s EA Play Live 2020, they showed a next-gen tech teaser featuring what looked like BioWare’s Dragon Age, DICE’s Battlefield, and a new Need for Speed from Criterion. EA Motive also showed an untitled next-gen project. [1]

The following games have all been announced or shown by Microsoft at E3 2019 to be releasing on the Xbox One in 2020, which makes them likely candidates to get ported to the Xbox Series X:
