Xbox leaning into archives, third-party titles for launch

Xbox leaning into archives, third-party titles for launch

Cindy Walker via Video Games Chronicle:

"...we are not reliant on massive exclusive titles to drive console adoption. Our players will have thousands of games from four generations of Xbox available to play on launch day.”

With Halo delayed, it doesn't seem like they have much of a choice. We've heard all about the power of the Series X, this next-gen experience they're trying to deliver, etc and now they're having to push a launch that'll be made up of older games and ones that'll also be available on PS5 and PC. Not a great position to be in.
