Jason Schreier (Kotaku Splitscreen) : "Sony will have PS5 only titles at launch" | ResetEra

Find out what happens next time in "you don't say!?"
At this point I'm just ready to have both consoles fully revealed. I really doubt Microsoft will have a bad showing like last time around but all the fanboy defenses are giving me flashbacks. I'd honestly bet that Microsoft just doesn't have that many first party games in the works for the first year. Maybe we should try to predict that.

What unannounced games will Microsoft release for the Xbox One?

Forza Motorsport 8 is coming soon. Last time around it was used as a next gen launch exclusive so if it releases 2020 on both generations that would indeed be a change in policy. However 2019 was the first time ever that Forza skipped its traditional launch window, so maybe this was originally planned for Xbox One and delayed ala Breath of the Wild. Complete guesses at this point. We'll just have to wait and see.

Forza Horizon 5 could also be coming soon but it's a bit awkward since both games can't come out in 2020. Forza Horizon 2 was a cross gen title one year after Xbox One's release so if Horizon 5 is 2021 on both systems that wouldn't be a departure.

Playground's next game could be somewhat soon. Really don't have any info to speculate at this time.

Their new studios probably won't have anything big out for a while and smaller stuff would make sense to be cross gen.

Halo Infinite and Everwild are already announced cross gen games.
