Welcome to our first roundup for 2022! As you'd expect, January is looking like it'll be pretty quiet for new Xbox releases, but we've still got a variety of Xbox Game Pass titles on the way (with more likely to be announced as the month progresses), along with the biggest release of the month in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction.
Without further ado, here's what you can look forward to on Xbox in January 2022:
