List of Rumored Series X Games

  • Given that both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 have been barely announced and are still early in the development, It’s not unlikely that these games will come to the next generation console.
  • Elden Ring, published by Bandai Namco and developed by From Software in collaboration with George R. R. Martin was shown at E3 2019 with no release date, making it likely that it may launch sometime in 2020 around the Xbox Series X.

The following games have all been announced or shown by Microsoft at E3 2019 to be releasing on the Xbox One in 2020, which makes them likely candidates to get ported to the Xbox Series X:
