From Avowed to State of Decay 3, these Xbox Series X exclusives were missing in action
Announced back in 2018, we've had scant few details since. The long-awaited sequel to Skyrim is likely still in pre-production, with much of Bethesda's efforts focused on Starfield.
We were surprised Hellblade 2 wasn't given a new gameplay trailer. With the event focused mostly on games launching in the next 12 months, it looks like this sequel is further away than we'd like.
There was no chance of The Outer Worlds 2 appearing in 2022. No way whatsoever. The game is still early in development and won't be seen for quite some time.
Alas, another Xbox conference, and another no-show for Fable 4. There's been such a dearth of new info since its 2020 reveal that the Fable reboot is clearly earlier in development than suspected.
There have been reports Rare's new online co-op game has been rebooted entirely during development. Still, there was at least some expectation Everwild would finally be shown after three years of unbridled speculation.
State of Decay 3 is earlier in development than we had originally expected, so we may be waiting a while to see this new generation take on a zombie-filled, simulated sandbox.
Avowed is Obsidian's brand new RPG – set in the Pillar of Eternity world, but otherwise looks like the studio's take on The Elder Scrolls Oblivion. We're pretty sad it no-showed the event.
