Xbox “Summer Spotlight” officially announced

Summer Spotlight is designed to showcase upcoming digital releases on Xbox One.

Today, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson confirmed that the Summer Spotlight was returning to the Xbox One. This year, a handful of Spotlight titles will be announced each week and will be released every Tuesday from now until Sept. 5, 2016.

By the time Summer Spotlight ends in September, 25 new digital games will have hit the Xbox One Store. Microsoft isn’t keen on releasing every participating title just yet, but the just-released promo video gives a glimpse of some of the games we can expect in the coming weeks:

From the trailer, I spotted the following:

  • Resident Evil 4 Remastered
  • Worms W.M.D.
  • Prominence Poker
  • Kerbal Space Program
  • Inside
  • The Solus Project
  • Don’t Starve Shipwrecked
  • Battleship
  • Livelock
  • Dungeon Punks
  • The Turing Test
  • We Happy Few
  • Hyper Light Drifter
  • Overcooked
  • Risk: Urban Assault
  • Kingdom: New Lands
  • Hawken
  • Slime Rancher

Although it wasn’t in the trailer, Ubisoft also announced that their upcoming Uno title will also be part of Xbox Summer Spotlight.

Loads of new games are coming to the platform, but it’s hard to games like Below and Cuphead, which the Xbox team has dangled over gamers for literal years. There are several games that haven’t been announced just yet, so maybe Microsoft has some tricks up its sleeve to make something happen.
