The reveal of Marvel's Blade from Arkane Studios was one of the best surprises of The Game Awards 2023, and the game has been getting a ton of hype since the show ended - including from a whole bunch of excited Xbox fans!

Nevertheless, there's also been some confusion around the way the game was marketed at the show. As you may have noticed, Xbox wasn't mentioned at all as part of the announcement - not in the trailer, nor on Bethesda's website.

As a result, there have been a few people questioning the silence from Xbox about the game so far:

At the time of writing (and this obviously could change soon), we don't know which platforms the game is coming to, whether it's confirmed for Xbox Game Pass, and whether it'll be an Xbox exclusive or a multi-platform title. Xbox Wire only shared a tiny bit of information about the game last night, and didn't say anything about this at all.

So, we're left with questions for now. There are a multitude of reasons why Xbox might be choosing to stay quiet for the time being (don't forget the FTC is still trying to challenge the Activision Blizzard deal right now, so maybe that has something to do with it?), and the game itself has apparently only just begun development anyway.

We'll keep an eye on the situation - in the meantime, here's a bit more information on the game itself:

"Marvel’s Blade game will take players to a quarantined section of Paris in the middle of a supernatural emergency. Vampires have emerged, terrorizing the city of lights and forcing Parisians to shelter inside their homes at night to wait for sunrise."

"Arkane Lyon have just begun development on the game which will feature an original story with the studio’s signature immersive gameplay and world-class narrative."

Do you think Marvel's Blade will be an Xbox exclusive? What's with the silence right now? Give us your thoughts below.
