A new year has already begun and gamers want to know what awaits them in the next 12 months of gaming. To give a taste of the things they are preparing for their users, Xbox shared the list of exclusives that it has prepared for 2021.
In a post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft revealed which are some of the games that will reach the Xbox ecosystem exclusively in 2021. The highest-profile game on the list is Halo Infinite, the highly anticipated FPS from 343 Industries that is expected to debut sometime in the fall of this year.
That said, the reality is that there are other cool things on the list. For example, there it is confirmed that CrossfireX, the shooter whose campaign was developed by Remedy Entertainment, will arrive in 2021. There are also independent projects such as Sable, Tunic, and Twelve Minutes, which we have seen in Microsoft presentations and we have been waiting for a good little while.
We leave you full releases below:
- The Artful Escape
- The Ascent
- The Big Con
- Dead Static Drive
- Echo Generation
- Exo One
- The Gunk
- Halo Infinite
- The Last Stop
- Little Witch in the Woods
- The Medium
- Microsoft Flight Simulator (console)
- RPG Time
- She Dreams Elsewhere
- Song of iron
- Twelve Minutes
- Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy
- Warhammer 40K: Darktide
- Way to the Woods
- The Wild at Heart
THE LIST ALSO FEATURED SOME CROSS-PLATFORM GAMES COMING TO GAME PASS.
One point we should mention is that the list mentioned a few short games that, in reality, are not exclusive to Xbox. That said, they are of interest to the users of this ecosystem since they will be part of the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
What titles are we talking about? The first is Psychonauts 2, a Double Fine game that became a reality thanks to a campaign on Kickstarter. Although it is a project of a studio that already belongs to Microsoft, Psychonauts 2 will also arrive on PlayStation 4 and PC.
On the other hand, the list also includes Yakuza: Remastered Collection and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, both titles already available on PlayStation 4. Their appearance on the list is to indicate that they will be part of the Xbox Game Pass in the coming months.
It should be mentioned that you should not consider this list as definitive either for a couple of reasons. The first is that, although the intention is for all these games to arrive in 2021, the reality is that video game development is a very complicated task. This is why thinking about the possibility of a delay is not unreasonable.
On the other hand, we must also be open to the possibility that Microsoft is keeping a surprise up its sleeve. We’ll see if that happens. As usual, we will be waiting and we will tell you all the Xbox plans.
And to you, what did you think of the list? Are you excited to enjoy these titles in the Xbox ecosystem? Tell us in the comments.
