Today Microsoft made a sort of promise - more like a statement of intent - for the games that'll be available to play on Xbox Series X at launch. They've suggested that "you will be able to play four generations of games on Xbox Series X on day one." They went on to say that "it's our intent for all Xbox One games that do not require Kinect to play on Xbox Series X at the launch of the console."

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 delayed again

If you were looking forward to the release of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, it looks like you'll have to wait quite a bit longer. Bloodlines 2 has been hit with another delay, this one pushing it back into 2021.
