With the console still on track to release sometime during the holiday season later this year, the Xbox Series X is preparing a huge alpha strike upon gamers’ appetites from day one. Yesterday, Microsoft released a first look at gameplay on the system. Part of the video included a glimpse at the horde of studios developing for the platform — and, yup, there were plenty of MMO and online game studios included.
Among those studios listed included Pearl Abyss (Black Desert), Blizzard (Overwatch), Perfect World (Neverwinter), PUBG Corp., Allods Team (Allods Online), Amazon Game Studio (New World), Bethesda (Fallout 76), Epic Games (Fortnite), SEGA (Phantasy Star Online 2), Square Enix (Final Fantasy XIV), Roblox, Ubisoft (The Division 2), and Wargaming (World of Tanks). It should be noted that the presence of these developers doesn’t necessarily mean that these games will be ported over, but… you’re a smart cookie. We’ll let you speculate.
Polygon also noted that Bungie not only confirmed that Destiny 2 was coming to the Xbox X but the PlayStation 5 as well. This makes sense, considering that the game is currently on both Microsoft and Sony’s current-gen consoles.
