We were just putting up our feet with some mulled wine when we got jabbed in the ribs. Apparently actual bonafide games are being released in December 2023. And a GOTY contender no less! We had factored in a snooze, and our plans have gone to pot.
May has got more quality games than a yard sale at Shigeru Miyamoto’s house. The Up Next that details the most exciting games for the next month becomes increasingly difficult to make sense of. Which of the fifty-odd new Xbox games due for release should we include? It’s a nice problem to have.
By rights, December should have no new Xbox games of note. It’s the end of the year: who has any disposable cash? We’re grateful that a few studios have said pooh-pooh and released games anyway. Absolute mad lads.
For the second month running, we’ve utterly failed to keep the Up Next for September 2022 to ten games. In fact, there’s so many new Xbox games that we’re hyped about, that we’re stretching all the way to thirteen for September 2022. Positively gushing, the games are.
August must be good if we’re having to cram thirteen new Xbox games into our Up Next. Yep, rather than edit the Up Next down by trimming out some of the fabulous games coming in August, we decided to include every single one of the Xbox games that got us excited. And there is a lot to get excited about.
We’re in an unusual timeline when the headline of the month is a LEGO game. But that’s the one we’re in, as LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga wipes the floor with pretty much every game that’s coming out in April 2022. We can already hear the clattering of plastic studs.
