Hi everyone. So, now felt like a good time to revive this thread. As I’m sure some may be aware, Javy is currently on indefinite suspension, but this project should live on. We worked on this together back in the day (I did the initial ideation, Javy expanded on it), and it seems right to continue it. Massive thanks to Javy for his work on this project to date.

There was talk of a Project Pax Dei by Mainframe Industries but unsure if that was connected to Xbox in anyway :thinking:

Apparently it was supposed to be published by xbox but the devs pulled out (Got funding elsewhere or something). Apparently… source: the Grubbster, I think


70 upcoming games, only 1 with gameplay showcased

It’s hard to show gameplay for stuff that hasn’t been announced yet :phil_lmao:

True, but not for the announced ones.

I’m hoping the lack of gameplay showcase vertical slices is speeding up development for all these games.

I think some need to take a moment and remember Xbox has more games in the works than anyone out there so I’m bumping this. There is an absolute metric ton that they are working on. And they are coming off the highest rated metacritic year EVER for a publisher, so relax for a bit. They need to get better at marketing and communicating news and yeah they’ve been a little quiet so far, but they have a show next week and we aren’t far out from June either. Xbox is the place to be.


Up to 73

If you told me just 5 years ago Xbox would have over 70 games in the works, I would’ve laughed and called you nuts and don’t be stupid… imagine what it’s going to be like in another 5 years time with the 100% support from the top, the head of Xbox is now part of the top of the company which in itself is crazy. I was going to list the games I’m excited for but that would take too long haha!

I still believe an Xbox exclusive Minecraft MMO would be insane. We’ve already seen how loot/combat can work in Minecraft Dungeons, add Zenimax Online expertise into it and I honestly think it would be the biggest MMO ever.


What about these?

  • Xbox Game Studios: Ninja Theory - Insight: Project
  • Xbox Game Studios: The Coalition - Alpha Point
  • Xbox Game Studios: Rare - GoldenEye 007

To the best of my knowledge, Insight is for the medical field and thus not really a game in the conventional sense. I have put it in other.

Alpha Point is a tech demo, not a game.

Thanks for reminding me about Goldeneye! :slight_smile:

Ahhh no wonder we have not heard much about those projects!

I have edited a cool graphic some guy made i’ll try find it and upload it

We could continue to add to it and give him credit for it.

Great list by the way lots of info!!!

Updated through to E3


Perfect Dark looks enticing.I know that the game comes from a previous era and because I hadn’t tried playing it I will do so this time.What matters is the fact that with Xbox Series you can play games from the past which have been positively improved.That way you feel like you were many years before.Not many can offer this chance except Xbox’s.


Nick, just watched your appearance on Colt’s podcast - which was great. Thought I would draw your attention to this thread since you seemed surprised at the “50 or 60 games in development” comment.

See the original post above for the community’s working list. I’m sure there are errors in it, but it’s easy to see how people are coming up with that number from the announced games plus leaks about various projects.
