Report Shares Early Details On Two Upcoming Xbox Exclusives

We've got new details today on a couple of upcoming Xbox exclusives from Compulsion Games and Obsidian Entertainment courtesy of Windows Central, giving us an idea of what to expect from these projects.

The game from Compulsion (known for We Happy Few), is codenamed "Midnight", and is described as a "third-person action game set in a dark and fantastical world". It apparently features magic and large fantastical beasts with a "southern gothic" vibe, and will be a single-player title. It's set to release in a couple of years (or possibly longer).

Obsidian's new indie-style project is codenamed "Pentiment" and is being led by Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity director, Josh Sawyer. It'll be a dialogue-heavy game focused around a murder conspiracy, described as "more of a narrative RPG adventure than something combat-oriented". Apparently, this could be released in 2022.

Finally, Windows Central also says it's heard of a new Xbox Publishing partnership codenamed "Vonnegut" and a new first-party title codenamed "Velvet", although no further information is known about these for now.

All of this certainly sounds intriguing, and we'll be keeping a close eye out for official details in the future.
