Microsoft narrows down the Xbox One’s launch date with full list of launch titles

Following up their Gamescom showcase, Microsoft released the full list of Xbox One launch titles that are “targeted” to be available on day one. (Look for an update below)

Today at gamescom, the Xbox team confirmed over 20 game titles that are targeted to be available at the Xbox One launch. The hotly anticipated line-up of blockbuster games has been building since the initial announcement of Xbox One, with Microsoft exclusive titles receiving 272 award nominations and 111 wins at E3 2013. You can read the full line-up of currently announced Xbox One games here. And this is just the beginning – many more blockbuster games will be announced in the coming months.

On launch day, you’ll be able to enjoy titles from a diverse range of global developers and renowned studios. Xbox One launch titles include:

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)

Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)

Call of Duty: Ghosts (Infinity Ward, Activision)

Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft Studios)

Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)

FIFA 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

Fighter Within (AMA Ltd., Ubisoft)

Forza Motorsport 5 (Turn 10 Studios, Microsoft Studios)

Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft Paris, Ubisoft)

Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (TT Games, Warner Bros. Interactive)

Lococycle (Twisted Pixel, Microsoft Studios)

Madden NFL 25 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports)

NBA Live 14 (EA Sports, Electronic Arts)

Need for Speed: Rivals (Ghost Games, Electronic Arts)

Peggle 2 (Popcap, Electronic Arts)

Powerstar Golf (Zoe Mode, Microsoft Studios)

Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios)

Skylanders: Swap Force (Vicarious Visions, Activision)

Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)

Zoo Tycoon (Frontier Developments Ltd., Microsoft Studios)

Zumba Fitness: World Party (Zoë Mode, Majesco)

While the Xbox One’s release date is still not known, there are a few telling factors that may narrow down when we can expect it to finally be available. Most notably is that Watch Dogs and Need For Speed: Rivals are touted as being available on day one. Both Watch Dogs and Need For Speed: Rivals have a confirmed release date of November 19th so it’s easy to extrapolate that Xbox One won’t be available before then, which narrows down the window of their November launch quite a bit. They won’t release after Black Friday which is November 29th, so that leaves open a window of 10 days from November 19th to the 29th where we may see the console. My guess right now is the 19th to the  22nd, what do you think?

UPDATE: According to Game Informer, Need For Speed Rivals is confirmed for November 21st, which puts it a mere 2 days after the 19th of November and on a Thursday which is highly unorthodox.
