After much criticism over its lack of first party titles in calendar year 2022, Microsoft says it’s ‘on track’ to release at least five first-party games in the next year.
In a briefing to media outlets, the company says it released five such titles this fiscal year (which ends June 30th). Those were “Forza Horizon 5,” “Halo Infinite,” “Microsoft Flight Simulator,” “Psychonauts 2” and “Age of Empires IV” – all of which hit late last year.
They then say “we are on track to meet or exceed that amount in the next fiscal” which ends June 2023. So far Bethesda’s recently delayed “Redfall” and “Starfield” are the only titles confirmed in that grouping.
However, the official Xbox releases of titles already out on PlayStation & PC – “Deathloop” and “Ghostwire: Tokyo” – could also fit into that description. Both those games are expected to make the jump to Xbox before next June.
“Avowed,” “Hellblade: Senua’s Saga,” “State of Decay 3,” and most likely “Forza Motorsport” could vie for those remaining slots depending upon when they’re ready. Others however, like “Everwild,” “Perfect Dark,” and “Fable,” are said to be further off.
Microsoft’s Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase will be held on Sunday, June 12th.
