Unannounced Xbox insider leaks and a "dark" Xbox Series X exclusivity

Tech Highlights:

  • Unfortunately, this is where the details dry up. There’s no word of a release date, a release window, or if it will be a cross-gen release. Nor is there any word on when we will hear more about this mystery title. That said, what is here should be taken with a grain of salt. The source in question — Klobrille — has proven reliable in the past, but that doesn’t change the fact that everything here is unofficial and more importantly, subject to change. In other words, even if this is all accurate, it doesn’t mean it will remain accurate. For what it’s worth though, this report has been collaborated by others.

  • An unannounced Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S exclusive has been released by a key Xbox insider. Unfortunately, there are few specifics about the game, but we do know that it’s being developed by Compulsion Games, the studio behind We Happy Few. Furthermore, the game is described as a “dark fantasy third-person action-adventure game” in the article. If this seems vaguely familiar, it’s because it’s very similar to We Happy Few. However, the Canada-based developer is not working on a sequel to the 2018 game, as far as we know.

Should Xbox fans be excited about a new game from Compulsion Games? Hard to say. The team has never released a great game. Its most recent and most marque release was We Happy Few, which had potential, but fell very short of this potential, earning a Metacritic score of 62 to 67 depending on the platform.

At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties have addressed any of this with any type of comment or statement.

This was before the studio was acquired by Xbox in 2018 though. Since then, it’s bulked up, and it’s safe to assume this project will have access to far more resources than its previous projects, though, for now, this is just speculation.
