From first-party hits like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 to wonderful indies such as Tunic, Xbox owners have plenty of console exclusives to choose from.


Xbox's library of console exclusives may not get the same level of fanfare as Switch or PlayStation titles, but the library is on an impressive trajectory. Stellar AAA titles like Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite lead the way, but Xbox is also home to some seriously impressive indies that aren't available on other consoles, including the recently released Zelda-like Tunic. And with Microsoft continuing on a tear of studio acquisitions, the library of Xbox exclusives will only grow in future years. We've rounded up our picks for the 20 best Xbox exclusives, most of which are playable on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

We'll be sure to come back and update this list as new Xbox games launch or if one of the exclusives listed below also releases for additional console platforms.
