It's going to be a very busy fall for video game fans, as both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 next-generation consoles go on sale. But, while we know they will arrive at some point during the holiday season, exactly what games will launch alongside still isn't certain.

We're going to look at the Xbox Series X is this article, the console that is claimed to be the more powerful of the two, and which is tipped to be joined by a lesser (and cheaper) 'Series S' version soon, too.

As always when a new generation of video game console launches, most new games will be offered on both the Xbox One X (and S), as well as the new Xbox Series X (and Series S, when that is made official). Only a small handful of games will be exclusive to the Series X (and Windows 10 PCs), as most will be offered on the older Xbox One X and S consoles too.

Microsoft is also rolling out a system where some games purchased for the current-generation consoles can be downloaded onto the new console for free, and with improved graphics and performance. Microsoft is calling this Smart Delivery, and it will be offered with a wide range of Xbox One games. Buy any of those games for the Xbox One today (or when they go on sale) and when you buy a Series X, and log in with the same Microsoft account, the game will be available for free on your new console.

Because Microsoft hasn't yet announced a release date for the Series X, it's tricky to say exactly what games will be available from day one. And, given the year 2020 has been, many high-profile games will carry a 'TBC' sticker, while others, like Halo Infinite, which was supposed to be a Series X launch title, have been delayed until 2021.

Some Series X games have a set release date and will be available on both generations of consoles, some have a target month, some are arriving in the holiday season, and others we only know of having a 2020 release date. Others will arrive just around the corner, in early-2021, and some don't have a release date yet at all. The list below is of games expected before the end of 2020, but the dates may still change.
