The biggest one on the horizon is Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, which was recently shown for the first time at the most recent Xbox Developer Direct.

Microsoft has yet to confirm that it’s bringing any of the games to other platforms, but XboxEra’s report on the matter claims that an announcement is on the way in the coming weeks, so It shouldn’t be too long until we hear more. That being said, it looks like the fate of Indiana Jones and the Great Circle has yet to be decided by Xbox, so its release window on that console and PS5 could be changed before the end of the year.
