Xbox Exclusives To Look Forward To In 2024

Well, exclusive for now.

Just as we’ve established what’s in the pipeline this year for PlayStation and Nintendo in terms of console-exclusive releases, both first and third party, we now arrive at Xbox’s green machine which, at times, has put out a software line-up most would describe as lean

I feel like a broken record in saying that, after Bethesda shouldered a bulk of last year, the dominoes finally seem to be set up for Microsoft themselves to deliver a pretty robust line-up of games this year and deliver on the quarterly releases they were aiming for. Which is obviously great, it’s nice to see the fruits of some of their acquisitions from way back. 

The wonderful thing is that subscribers of Xbox Game Pass, which is still arguably the best deal in video games, are expected to get every single one of these releases as part of their patronage. 

Of course, so many questions remain about Xbox’s slate. We’re still relatively fresh from the closure of Activision Blizzard’s takeover and don’t know the full extent of how that’ll play into things, and of course there’s the recent move to push some of its first-party titles across to PlayStation and Switch. There’s also still a host of games we know exist without knowing when to expect them, like Clockwork Revolution, South of Midnight, and Fable.

With all that said, here’s a list of the games coming exclusively (as far as we know it) to Xbox’s ecosystem in 2024.
