Roundup: 14 Games From Last Year's Xbox Showcase That Haven't Released Yet

You may recall that the Xbox Games Showcase 2022 was focused around games that were intended to release within the 12 months following that show, but as expected, a few of them ended up missing the window.

Inspired by our friends at The Loadout, we thought we'd put together a list of Xbox games from the show that haven't launched yet, complete with details about each. And by the way, this isn't meant as a criticism — we were always expecting a few titles to get delays, and we're hoping they might show up at the 2023 Xbox Showcase this weekend.

Without further ado, here are 14 games from last year's Xbox Showcase that have yet to release. All of them are scheduled to be coming to Xbox Game Pass and/or PC Game Pass when they finally arrive.
