Xbox Projects | Official and Rumored List (58) - Velvet = Compulsion new Project


Hey everyone felt bored so I decided to make a thread on all rumored and confirmed xbox games in case we wanna funnel talk of all those projects into one place. Wanna give @DeoGame a shout since I took his list from weeks ago for the core version and I added some different touches to it.

If anything seems to be missing let me know but the total count for now using Deo’s list and what we know right now it stands at 56 projects across Xbox.

Great thread @javycane


We went from nada on xbox one to era to having 56 projects between rumored and confirmed. Sheesh.


This thread needs a table so we can sort by perspective and co-op versus single player. Would help for future list wars.


And sad dad games!


Ill add one for camera perspective

Haha I’m just kidding

A column just for projected @Hindle date


The next ESO chapter (DLC) will release next year. We will get a teaser by the end of the year.

There is also the next DLC (Deadland) which will release on November 1 for PC and around 2 weeks later for console.

Great initiative @javycane !

Should had added Psychonauts 2

I got an idea for the main post but Ill edit later tonight

xBoX hAs nO gAmEs.

Great work expanding on the list. Only thing I think may be worth mentioning is the Windows Central article said 2 Minecraft Spinoffs. Cheers! :slight_smile:


Crazy. More than enough content for Xbox to expand into having two major shows, which they totally should do.

Good job! By the way, I remember there was a rumor about a game derived from an IP or spin off? Was it denied or am I getting confused?

No you are correct but idk if thats the rumored indie game at 51.

Great job on the list

Project Gravity (Gravity Well)?

I mentioned this in the other thread but I thought someone, maybe Jez said Project Gravity was something else/possibly already released?

I’m excited for at least 28 of those games, and keen to see the ones we don’t fully know about.
