As you can see, the big news for Xbox fans in 2023 is that Microsoft is finally moving away from ensuring their biggest first-party titles remain native to Xbox One. The Xbox team has previously been one of the biggest proponents of this cross-gen concept, but even they are starting to push people towards next-gen hardware.
While Xbox has more exclusives lined up in 2023 than it has in recent years, the biggest name on the list above is obvious starfield. Xbox One fans will no doubt be disappointed to learn that Bethesda’s next big RPG won’t run natively on that console.
The very good news is that Xbox has already confirmed that Xbox One owners can stream starfield via Game Pass Ultimate. We’re still awaiting cloud streaming confirmations/details for some of those other exclusives, but that’s certainly one more reason to be a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber if you’re sticking with your Xbox One.
Otherwise, you’ll find more and more smaller developers taking their games straight to Xbox Series X/S and skipping Xbox One. Of course, only you know for sure whether you are personally interested in these titles or not. Again, the bigger benefit is that we’re getting to the point where if you don’t own next-gen hardware, you’re going to be missing out on more and more games in any given year.
