Microsoft weren't kidding when they said that the Inside Xbox lineup is just the tip of the iceberg, as they posted a list of more than 140 studios developing for Xbox Series X.

"Hundreds of titles are already in development for Xbox Series X thanks to our amazing partner community. Stay tuned for more announcements throughout the summer and Xbox 20/20", they wrote on Twitter. 

As you can see from the brief video, just about any studio you can think of has dipped its toes into Xbox Series X development, including big shots like Epic Games, Blizzard and so on. 

Of course, the fact they're developing doesn't mean they're exclusive to Xbox Series X, but Microsoft want you to know that the next-gen console will be well supported with games. 

It doesn't take much to see where this is coming from, especially with the underwhelming presentation of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. 

Even though both companies only planned for a brief presentation, most fans understood they'll be seeing a gameplay demo, and the hype just made it worse.

Nevertheless, Microsoft's reaction was pretty great , as general manager of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg wrote, "Had we not said anything & just shown May Inside Xbox show like we did last month, I suspect reactions might have been different. Clearly we set some wrong expectations & that’s on us. We appreciate all the feedback & can assure you we will take it all in & learn as a team."

The developer of the hectic shooter Chorus said that Xbox Series X's power makes it the easiest one to develop for yet , and their game is putting it to use in things like procedural destruction.
