A lot has been said about Xbox Game Studios this year, with Microsoft's first-party output dropping quite significantly from last year - especially when talking big AAA titles. While that's true and has indeed been disappointing, we want to look ahead to 2023 as we all hope for a much stronger output from Team Xbox.
The first offerings that come to mind are of course Redfall, Starfield and Forza Motorsport; three games that are set to launch on Xbox Game Pass during the first half of 2023. Those two Bethesda titles were pushed from this year, which contributed to Xbox's quiet 2022, and we're super excited for them to fill some of the opening months of 2023.
While Redfall is yet to completely win us over, we have faith in Arkane Studios after finally going hands on with the critically acclaimed Deathloop earlier this year. Starfield is going to be absolutely huge when it launches as well, both literally and in the context of the wider gaming market.
