In 2024, a lot of titles are going to arrive on Phil Spencer’s console. Or rather, on the consoles, since both the Xbox Series X and the little sister called Series S are included. And we’ll see if they release that midgen rumored during the Microsoft trial.

For all those users or players who trust Xbox to live their adventures and enjoy their games, this article aims to remind you of the great releases that will arrive in 2024 for Microsoft’s Series X|S. Let’s go!

The 7 most anticipated games coming out on Xbox in 2024

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2

Although its predecessor, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, is available on multiple platforms, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 will be an Xbox console exclusive following the acquisition of developer Ninja Theory by Microsoft in 2018.

The game was first announced alongside the Xbox Series X/S, boasting the graphical fidelity that would be possible in the new console generation. Hellblade 2 continues to shape up as incredibly cinematic, and the action-adventure game is set to be one of the most photorealistic games ever released. Its release is scheduled for an undetermined date in 2024.


The upcoming fantasy RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, Avowed, has sparked many comparisons to Skyrim, but it is expected to be a more focused experience, based on Obsidian’s strengths in developing character-driven narratives.

Avowed does not have a more precise release date than sometime in 2024, but it has long been known that the game will take place in Eora, the setting of Obsidian’s CRPG series Pillars of Eternity.

The two Pillars games are famous for their writing and world-building, so Avowed already has great potential along with its change of perspective to first person.

Everwild, from Rare, has remained silent for the past few years, but the developer is “‘optimistically’ aiming for a 2024 release,” according to VGC.

Many details of the game are still unknown, possibly because its production was restarted under new direction at some point. There is speculation that Everwild will not have combat, and that it may be something similar to Viva Piñata.

Be that as it may, the involvement of Rare and its pictorial art style and cel-shading are enough to justify keeping an eye on Everwild as an Xbox exclusive for consoles starting in 2024.

Dragon’s Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is another highly anticipated sequel that will be released in 2024 (March 22), following the original Dragon’s Dogma from 2012 and its enhanced version, titled Dark Arisen. This game will not be exclusive to Xbox.

The series tells the cyclical story of the Arisen, chosen to face a dragon that appears to bring about the end of the world. Dragon’s Dogma 2, a third-person fantasy RPG, will try to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor by featuring emergent gameplay, scalable enemies, and dynamic and powerful magic.

It will also feature a fascinating asymmetric multiplayer system, in which customizable pawns from other players’ worlds will be summoned to help, with the knowledge they have acquired in their home realm.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart Of Chornobyl

The development of STALKER 2 has suffered significant setbacks due to the war in Ukraine, where the developer and publisher GSC Game World is based.

Loosely based on Roadside Picnic, a novel by Soviet brothers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and influenced by Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film, Stalker, STALKER 2 takes place in the exclusion zone of Chornobyl after a fictional second disaster in 2006.

In this horror and survival FPS, players control a Stalker who explores the Zone and its anomalies, and is scheduled to arrive in the first quarter of 2024.

Star Wars Outlaws

Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft aim to offer the first open-world Star Wars game with Star Wars Outlaws, which will arrive in 2024. Although it is still to be seen how extensive this open world will be, the mere idea of venturing into a galaxy far, far away, with a ship and a handful of companions is enough to pique interest.

The third-person action and adventure game follows Kay Vess in his creation of a “fantasy of rogue outlaws” that tasks players with navigating the criminal underworld of the franchise, including direct involvement with a series of notorious crime syndicates. Hopefully it will arrive in 2024.
