Complete list of Xbox Series S and X games available at launch for consoles

by Henry Brown

In less than a month, the next-gen Xbox Series S and Series X consoles are on sale. Microsoft has repeatedly said the consoles will be backward compatible with thousands of older games, so gamers can count on a huge library. However, for those who do not want to go back to the old, but want to try out all the features of the next generation on the very first day (the consoles will hit the market on November 10, 2020), there is a special list. It includes both new games and add-ons that will become available on launch day (for example, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Beyond Light DLC for Destiny 2), and titles redesigned and optimized specifically for Series X (like the recently released NBA 2K21).

Most games support Smart Delivery. This means that if a person has already purchased the game for Xbox One, then he will receive its version for Series S and Series X for free. The list below also shows the games that you can play with an Xbox Game Pass subscription without having to buy a copy.

Optimized versions will also get The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Control, Doom Eternal, Marvel’s Avengers and many more games, but not at the start of console sales.

Halo Infinite from Microsoft will not be released until 2021 at all. Interestingly, the official list of optimized games also includes STALKER 2 from GSC Gameworks.
