Xbox Exclusive Games Scheduled for 2023 Likely to Be Delayed

We are left with around only 40 days in 2022 as we head to an exciting 2023 for gaming fans. Just today, Jez Corden, the Managing Editor for Windows Central, took to Twitter to ask the fans what their main problem with Xbox was. One fan replied and expressed their concern. The concern was regarding the Xbox Exclusive games and their launch dates. The concern was whether there would be a delay in the launch date from 2023 until later. 

The fan posted a picture that displays multiple Xbox Exclusive games that Xbox will launch in the next 12 months. They said that although Xbox has given the games’ launch year to be 2023, it is very vague. There are more than 20 games. As of right now, none of the mentioned titles has any official dates announced. Some games, such as Starfield and Redfall, are scheduled to be released in the first half of 2023, but apart from that, there is not even an estimated release date for the other games, except we know that they will be launched in 2023. 

Major Points

  • There are more than 20 Xbox games scheduled to be launched in 2023.
  • No game has an official launch date yet announced.

As of right now, we are eagerly waiting for the official launch date announcements for these games. Even if one game were to be released every month, that would not be enough. Xbox needs to release at least two games every month in 2023 to reach its goal of launching all the games in 2023. Though, before that, they would need proper marketing. To market these games properly, they need to announce the launch dates for most of the titles mentioned within the first half of 2023. 

There will be multiple gaming events in 2023. Before that, Reboot Develop Red is scheduled to take place in Banff, Canada, from December 12 to December 14, 2022. They could announce release dates for at least 3-4 titles so they can adequately market these games. Then the gaming events starting from 2023, such as Taipei Game Show 2023 from February 2 to February 6, could have some announcements until the last event in October 2023. This way, they can properly market these games. 

If they have appropriately planned these announcements and launch dates, then we are unlikely to face a delay in the launch dates. Otherwise, a delay is inevitable. Going by the current situation, they are already behind. We think it is very likely that some, if not most, games will be delayed to 2024 or even beyond that. What do you think? Will Xbox release all the games as planned in 2023, or will they delay it? Let us know below!
