It's finally time to slow things down. We've only got a few games scheduled for release in the run-up to Christmas, and none of them are major AAA titles. No Game Pass games either — we've had more than enough of those recently!

Here's what's coming to Xbox this week:

New Xbox Releases (December 20-24)
