Xbox said this week that it’s “on track” to release at least five first-party games in the next year, which would match or exceed its output in the previous 12 months.

So far, Bethesda’s Redfall and Starfield – which were recently delayed to “the first half of 2023” – are the only titles officially confirmed for release during Microsoft’s next fiscal year.

Assuming Microsoft’s definition of “new games” is only relevant to Xbox platforms, two additional titles from Bethesda, Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo, could also release for Xbox within the next year, when their exclusivity deals with PlayStation expire.

Xbox Game Studios has a multitude of other announced games without confirmed release windows, including Obsidian’s Avowed, Ninja Theory’s Hellblade 2, Turn 10’s Forza Motorsport and Undead LabsState of Decay 3.

Other announced games including Rare’s Everwild, Playground Games’ Fable and The Initiative’s Perfect Dark are understood to not be close to releasing.
