On paper, redfall is slated to be one of the biggest exclusives Xbox has released in quite some time. 2022 ended up being a bad year for Xbox as the company didn’t release many first-party games all calendar year. Fortunately, things are looking a lot better this year. Not only will redfall is now launching in May, but it will be accompanied by Minecraft Legends due for release at the end of April. Not to mention, Xbox also released a new game titled stealth today Hi-fi hurry, which comes from the studio behind The Evil Within. While we still don’t know when Star field could appear, it looks like this year will be much healthier for Xbox fans in general.
As a reminder, redfall will only be available on current-gen platforms when it releases, meaning it will be playable on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. Additionally, since this is a first-party Xbox title, it will also be accessible via Xbox Game Pass on the first day of release.
