I blame Microsoft marketing. Look how many times we saw Godfall and Look at these games


Good list, but a few corrections:

Second Extinction is 2020 (announced at Future Games Show)

Don’t forget: Tetris Effect Connected, ExoMecha, 12 Minutes, Crossfire X, Bright Memory Infinite.


So many games, they should make a show for all these games.

That is a great list of unique and really interesting 3rd party games. I’m probably one of the few but these are the types of games I really love and Xbox is doing great at getting them on Xbox.

Make sure and add Bright Memory to the list it looks amazing and more next gen than almost anything we have seen tot his point

Crossfire X is published by XGS


Is it? I thought so too but the beta only had the Smilegate logo as did the listing, and the trailer the Smilegate and Remedy logos. They also called it a console launch exclusive.

I think it is like PUBG or PSO2 where XGS heavily supported the game but waived publishing rights to the IP holder.

Don’t forget TUNIC!


All in for The Ascent, Bright Memory Infinite and Crossfire X campaign. 50/50 for Second Extinction and Stalker 2.


Gunk & 12 minutes look stellar.


I’m shockingly enough (to myself) kinda excited for all these games.

Lots and lots of great games coming, some I’ve been waiting to play for years. Not a console exclusive, but the one I’m probably looking forward to the most is Dragon Quest XI S. I really hope that we’ll get the Heroes and the Builders games eventually.
