Top 5 Xbox One Exclusives of 2017

We just discussed the top 5 PlayStation 4 exclusives of 2017, how can we not do the same with Xbox One? There is a decent number of games coming to Xbox One this year. Even though 2016 was not the best year for Xbox exclusives, 2017 promises so much more.

Major projects are scheduled to release for Xbox One but the only worry we have is will they make it this year? Fingers crossed! Here are the top 5 Xbox One exclusives for 2017.

Top 5 Xbox One Exclusives

Halo Wars 2

Microsoft will kick-off the year with one of the biggest IPs in the world, Halo. Halo Wars 2 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs next month. The RTS title will follow the release of Halo 5, a somewhat mediocre entry into the Halo universe. However, Halo Wars 2 is a very different project but 343i needs to nail this one right.

Nostalgia at its best; Cuphead does not look like a game at all. It looks like a cartoon from the 1930s due to its art style. You are the lead character and have made a deal with the devil. You need to pay your debt by defeating bosses for the devil. Pretty dark plot for such a cute game.


Scalebound Coop

Scalebound is probably the biggest project Platinum has worked on but the studio consists of very talented members. Microsoft is backing the project and has put the studio in charge of Scalebound. Scalebound is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

State of Decay 2

One of the best zombie games on Xbox 360 was State of Decay. E3 2016 brought a surprise reveal of its sequel and we saw the unveiling of State of Decay 2. The IP is Microsoft’s crown jewel and rumor has it that it might also arrive on Project Scorpio. The game still has a release date missing but we should hear something soon.

Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is the return of Rare, one of the most iconic studios in the industry. Microsoft acquired it a long time ago but the company never made any use of the talents this studio has to offer, until now! Sea of Thieve is a console seller.
