Xbox game releases — January 18th to 24th

By Robbie Andrews,
11 new games are set to join the Xbox library this week, including the first major release of the year, with IOI's Hitman 3 leading the charge. In addition to these, Ride 4 also gets its Xbox Series X|S update this week, on the 21st. There's more great stuff to come before the end of the month too, with The Medium launching straight into Game Pass next week, but let's not get ahead of ourselves!

From this page, you can view a game's achievement list (if it's been released, which most should have been so close to launch), subscribe to a game for news updates, add games to your wishlist, and even click through to the Microsoft Store to preorder or purchase. Here's a breakdown of everything coming to the wonderful world of Xbox this week. Which are you planning on adding to your collection? Let us know below in the comments!
