Speaking at the ‘What’s Next For Gaming’ media panel, Xbox boss Matt Booty spoke about the Xbox division and their plans going forward. During the panel, Booty admitted that 2022 had some “gaps” in highly rated games, but plan on having a steady flow of titles throughout 2023 and into 2024.
“We had some gaps last year, but I think we’ve turned the corner going into 2023. I am feeling very good about launching Hi-Fi Rush, we have Minecraft Legends out there that’s doing well. We’ve had Age of Empires continuing to come to console. As we saw today, we are very excited for this fall with Forza Motorsport and Starfield.
“But when we get into 2024, it really kicks into gear. We have got Towerborne, we have Hellblade 2, Avowed, Flight Simulator 2024, and some things we haven’t talked about so far.
Booty also mentioned that him and Phil Spencer recently made personal visits to some studios to check the progress of titles currently in development. Saying:
“One of the things that I think bears calling out, Phil and I were talking about this, when we were here a year ago, we visited inXile and we played Clockwork Revolution running on console. And it was just so great to see them being able to show what they’ve been working on. For inXile, for Compulsion, for Obsidian… these are the first games that they’ve showed that are sort-of beginning, middle and end under the Xbox banner. These are games that they started post-acquisition as part of us, and it’s just great to see those.
