Four years after the initial announcement, Skull and Bones is finally launching in November. The final version of Skull and Bones is a mix of Ubisoft’s open-world titles, survival games, and a more detailed version of the Assassin’s Creed series’ naval combat.

OK, we all really want Final Fantasy 7: Remake, but this is the closest thing we are likely to get on Xbox for at least a while. And while it is a remake of a PSP game, it is not at all that much of a step down. In fact, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7: Reunion might end up being a much better place for Xbox fans to start with the series. It’s a prequel to 7, has a similar action RPG style of combat, and, most importantly, is actually on a console we can play it on.
The long-rumored open-world Harry Potter game is finally here, and it has a name. Hogwarts Legacy is set in the world of Harry Potter, of course, but new developer Portkey Games appears to be taking the story in a different direction.
