As players look ahead towards the new generation of Xbox, the Xbox One still lives. Here’s every Xbox One game releasing before 2020 ends.
Despite the looming launch of the Xbox Series X and S, Microsoft has not abandoned the Xbox One. Like PlayStation, which will have various PS4 games releasing before 2020 ends, many Xbox One games will also be released before the year ends. While a number of the games being released on Xbox One will also be released on PS4, there will be more Xbox exclusives compared to the PS4.
While Sony might be banking on the few major PlayStation exclusives to sale the PS5, Microsoft seem to focus on features such as quick resume, backwards compatibility, and Xbox Game Pass to entice players and get them to buy the Xbox Series X and S. While Xbox One players may not have the luxury of faster load times and quick resume like the Xbox Series X and S, they do still have assess to things such as backwards compatibility and the expansive collection of games included in Xbox Game Pass. To top things off, players also have the opportunity to play new games that will also be available on the Xbox Series X and S. Unless a player absolutely wants the advancements that come with the next-gen consoles, Xbox One players may not miss out on much early on in the Xbox Series X and S era.

Some players may not want to upgrade to a next-gen console right away for reasons beyond budget. The Xbox One and PS4 generation revolutionized gaming. It laid the groundwork for the next generation of consoles, and the Xbox One is still capable of having a long lifespan even as the new ninth generation of gaming progresses.

Despite this list having 55 games total, one less than the 56 titles that will be released for the PS4 before the end of 2020, there are more exclusives for the Xbox One than PS4. Xbox One has exclusives such as The Falconeer, Gears Tactics, Bright Memory, and Observer: System Redux whereas PlayStation’s primary exclusives include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Xbox One users can also play Xbox Series X games on the Xbox One thanks to Microsoft’s Smart Delivery. Xbox One owners don’t even need the Xbox Series X in order to play games from that console.
While the Xbox Series X and S might have faster load times, better graphics and performance, and other innovative features, the Xbox One is still a viable console to play. With the number of third-party games, Xbox exclusives, and first-party indie titles releasing in the future, Xbox One players can get a small taste of next-gen without buying a next-gen console right away. While the Xbox One may one day become obsolete as more players move on to the Xbox Series X and S, for the time being, players can continue to enjoy the console generation that set the standard for the next generation.
