Microsoft has made it offi­cial. The Xbox Series X will be launch­ing in Novem­ber of this year, but the com­pa­ny has­n’t giv­en any spe­cif­ic release date. How­ev­er, they did out­line what the Xbox Series X will be launch­ing with and it’s a doozy of a list. 

Accord­ing to Microsoft, they’ll have thou­sands of games to play, “span­ning four gen­er­a­tions” when the Xbox Series X launch­es. A hun­dred of those titles will be opti­mized for the Series X, including:

  • more that 50 new games planned for this year across gen­er­a­tion and opti­mized for Xbox Series X like, Assas­s­in’s Creed Val­hal­la, Dirt 5, Gears Tac­tics, Yakuza: Like a Drag­on and Watch Dogs: Legions.
  • New games devel­oped for Xbox Series X and launch­ing with Xbox Game Pass includ­ing, exclu­sives like The Medi­um, Scorn, Tetris Effect: Con­nect­ed and more
  • More than 40 pop­u­lar games new­ly opti­mized for the Series X such as Des­tiny 2, Forza Hori­zon 4, Gears 5, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Mad­den NFL 21 and more.

Microsoft also stat­ed that hun­dreds of devel­op­ers are work­ing on games for their next-gen con­sole and the “best way to dis­cov­er new games will be with Xbox Game Pass.” Begin­ning Sep­tem­ber 15th, Xbox Game Pass Ulti­mate mem­bers will be able to play more than 100 games from the cloud on their Android phone or tablet. 

This is the first time either Microsoft or Sony have said any­thing about a release of their con­soles. The Xbox Series X’s launch date was leaked ear­li­er this year, say­ing it would be released around Thanks­giv­ing (which appears to be true).
