Game News Xbox Series: the ton of games in development would be a headache for Microsoft!
During the year 2022, Microsoft and Xbox had the opportunity to launch some of their exclusives, but a hint of frustration must arise on the side of the American giant. In particular because some of its big productions have seen their release window shifted to 2023. A year which, conversely, promises to be busy and which gives knots to the brains of the company’s executives!
A year 2023 very busy in games and exclusives
In the absence of Sony (if we don’t take into account the pre-Summer Game Fest State of Play) and Nintendo, Microsoft had, in a way, a boulevard to shine during its summer conference with Bethesda studios. At the end of an event that lasted more than an hour and a half, and of which you can find the whole summary in this article, Microsoft has revealed to us a very wide choice of games that will be released during this second half of the year and, for the most part, next year in 2023.
However, at Xbox and Microsoft, if we are pleased to have such a large catalog of games, whether for more modest projects or large AAA, there is however a major challenge awaiting the teams, namely that of organizing the exit of all these beautiful people during the twelve months that will make up the year 2023. According to the recent confessions of the head of Microsoft Studios and Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty, it looks like a real headache!
2023, the year of the Xbox Series X|S consoles?
On paper, the list of games that will punctuate the next few years of Xbox Series X|Sand in the short term in 2023, makes you dizzy: Starfield, red fall, Avowed, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, Forza Motorsport, STALKER 2, ARK II… Some took advantage of the conference to give themselves a nice spotlight, but a large number of them haven’t really clarified things regarding their release date. And rightly so, as evidenced by a statement from Matt Booty that sparked strong reactions!
As relayed by the site DualShockers, the Microsoft executive explained that due to the number of games in the company’s boxesand more specifically Xbox Game Studios, it has become complicated and delicate to decide on the release windows for all of these productions. Faced with this large number of games, Microsoft and Xbox are facing a puzzle that should be resolved, little by little, starting in January. Let’s just hope for the American giant that the releases will not overlap and that they will not shade each other because, on the other side, PlayStation and Nintendo also have some nice moves to play.
