Xbox Console Timed Launch Exclusives: The Complete List

0

Timed exclusives, or console launch exclusives, are nothing new, with Xbox and PlayStation regularly releasing games that are exclusive to their platform for a limited time. These are different from permanent exclusives. Highly anticipated games such as Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 are all permanent Xbox exclusives and will likely never make it to another console.

The timed exclusives will start on Xbox consoles but eventually make their way to other platforms. There’s a whole range of timed exclusives for Xbox One and Xbox Series X&S, so let’s get into that.

How long does Xbox timed exclusivity last?

Timed exclusivity is a common practice used by both Xbox and PlayStation, such as with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which is an upcoming PlayStation timed exclusive.

Xbox likes to refer to its timed exclusives as Xbox Console Launch Exclusives. This refers to the fact that the game will launch on an Xbox console first and then other platforms later.

Typically, timed exclusivity will last about a year. Sometimes it’s shorter, as in the apparent case of STALKER 2, but it’s best to assume you’ll have to wait at least a year to see timed Xbox exclusives on a different platform.
