We now know that the Xbox Series X is releasing in two months. November 10th will mark the start of a new generation and whilst new hardware is exciting, it’s all about the games. The Xbox Series X launch line titles are a bit harder to follow than usual.
We’ve done our best to round up the games based on those that we know will have Xbox Series X specific releases, those that we know are getting Xbox Series X optimised versions that are assumed to be coming at launch, Xbox One games that will be optimised to run on Xbox Series X and those that we know are coming near after launch or at some point during the launch window.

It’s also worth mentioning that all Xbox One games will play on the Xbox Series X on day one, so Cyberpunk 2077 for instance, which is getting released the week after the Xbox Series X will run on the console (and presumably run better, with faster load times), but because it’s not specifically getting an Xbox Series X version/update until 2021, it doesn’t feature on the list.
