Updated June 19, 2020 320 votes 35 voters29 items

Excited to finally get your hands on Microsoft's latest next-generation console? So are we. It's hard to believe the Xbox Series X is almost here, but with just a few months left until the scheduled holiday 2020 release, plus an impressive launch reveal showcase, Microsoft has been slowly trickling out new hardware stats and gameplay footage, and gamers couldn't be more hyped. The list ranks every confirmed Xbox Series X game so far, including exclusive titles, original releases, and remastered ports.

Sporting full backward compatibility with all Xbox One games (as well as most Xbox 360 and original Xbox games), the Series X is designed to give Xbox gamers more opportunities to keep playing all their favorite games. In fact, Xbox's new Smart Delivery system lets users who already own a game on Xbox One play it on the Series X for free. (Take note, Sony.)

With plenty of games already confirmed for the launch date — and loads more being announced every week — check out all the upcoming Xbox Series X games from the list below and vote up all the titles you're most excited about. And be sure to check back again as new games are announced.
