Microsoft Shares A List Of Every Xbox Console Exclusive Coming In 2021

If you’re one of the few early adopters of the Xbox Series X/S or just an Xbox fan in general, you may be wondering what games you can expect to be playing on your new console this year. Games taking advantage of the new Xbox consoles have been sparse so far, but that all changes this year with a number of new and interesting exclusives to sink your teeth into.

In a blog post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft has detailed every Xbox console exclusive coming to the system this year. This includes previously delayed titles such as The Medium and Halo Infinite, with the former releasing on January 28th and the latter likely releasing towards the back end of 2021, although there is currently no confirmed release date. One other big release is the Xbox Series X/S version of Microsoft Flight Simulator which will be hitting stores this summer.

There are also a couple of strange inclusions in the list, the first of which is Psychonauts 2, a game also coming to the PS4. However, Psychonauts 2 is going to be on Game Pass on the release day, which is why the game is included. What’s less justifiable is the inclusion of almost every Yakuza game, a series that is already on PS4 and has been for quite a while. The list does mention they’re coming to Game Pass in 2021, but it’s strange to see them included in a list of console exclusives.

Other than that, the rest of the list is made up of interesting looking indies. One such title is the next game from the creators of the SteamWorld franchise, The Gunk. Other notable indie titles coming exclusively to Xbox consoles this year are Tunic, Scorn, Sable, and The Artful Escape, although none of them have confirmed release dates yet. Here’s everything else on the list that will be coming to Xbox consoles in 2021, also with no confirmed release date:

  • Adios
  • The Ascent
  • The Big Con
  • CrossfireX
  • Dead Static Drive
  • Echo Generation
  • ExoMecha
  • Exo One
  • The Last Stop
  • Lake
  • Little Witch in the Woods
  • RPG Time
  • She Dreams Elsewhere
  • Shredders
  • Song of Iron
  • Twelve Minutes
  • Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy
  • Warhammer 40K: Darktide
  • Way to the Woods
  • The Wild at Heart

It’s looking like a year dominated by indie games for Xbox, with a few big-budget titles sprinkled in. This will likely upset a few people, but some of the indies on this list do look very promising. Microsoft also promises that there is more coming, so we could possibly be looking at a big showing for the publisher during this year’s E3 week.
