Although Microsoft didn’t pay attention to the second half of 2018, the company made sure that players didn’t have any complaints about the products that were planned for customers in the first quarter of 2023. Numerous signs point to Xbox gamers and Xbox Game Pass subscribers continuing to play important content on a regular basis.
The first Xbox Developer Direct verified the favorable scenario while providing an interesting presentation of various Microsoft titles. Users may expect to see intriguing debuts and productions on the American corporation’s consoles and in the Xbox Game Pass library.
It’s understandable why the gaming community complained that Microsoft didn’t deliver the anticipated titles last year, but it turns out that in the first five months of this year, players can look forward to a total of seven first-party releases, and at the same time, the library will be expanded with a number of high-profile games heading to Xbox Game Pass:
- 25.01 – Hi-Fi Rush
- 27.01 – GoldenEye 007
- 31.01 – Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition
- 25-31.03 – Ghostwire: Tokyo*
- 18.04 – Minecraft Legends
- 02.05 – Redfall
- 05.05 – The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom
Microsoft filled more than just February. Despite the fact that the teams of the American corporation submitted three ideas in January, we can mention them all. Since Microsoft cannot announce the release of Ghostwire: Tokyo on Xbox before Sony’s contract expires, the status is still unknown. This is similar to what happened with Deathloop, which was made available to players immediately after the exclusivity period ended. The production, according to reports, will be made available at the end of March.
At the same time, Microsoft has yet to confirm the specifics of the release of Forza Motorsport and Starfield (the game is still scheduled for “the first half of 2023”). ( supposedly it will debut in the second half of 2023).
Third-party games heading to Xbox Game Pass at launch:
- 19.01 – Persona 3 Portable
- 19.01 – Persona 4 Golden
- 20.01 – Monster Hunter Rise
- 21.01 – Atomic Heart
- 03.03 – Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty
- 11.05 – Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2
The Xbox Game Pass collection will feature a sizable number of projects in 2023, although no release dates have yet been announced for the games.
However, it should be mentioned that in the first quarter of 2023, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get access to some pretty intriguing games.
