Despite there still being many details of the console we don’t yet know (such as it’s price and release date) Microsoft has just made a rather important statement regarding games for it’s new Xbox Series X platform. In releasing a list of upcoming releases, Microsoft has confirmed 22 games set for (or around) the launch of the console that is fully-optimized to get the best out of its significantly big performance potential!

“Optimized for Xbox Series X is the indicator for games that take advantage of the full power of Xbox Series X.

When you hear a game has been Optimized for Xbox Series X, you’ll know that the developer has either natively designed or fully rebuilt their game to take full advantage of the unique capabilities of our most powerful console ever.”

What Do We Think?

With there being some pretty notable titles on that list, it seems pretty clear that the Xbox Series X is going to be a pretty strong gaming option when it releases later this year. More so, it should be noted that this is only a list of current games and, as such, we can likely expect this to significantly grow before the console hits retail shelves.

While this is, however, all good news, as we noted right at the beginning, we are still firmly waiting on a firm release date and how much this console will cost. I must admit though, at the time of writing, I’m liking what I hear from Microsoft a lot more than Sony!
