The team believes the game from Bethesda will be the start of a steady flow of releases.

West noted that Xbox places great emphasis on collaboration with third-party studios, which helps to enrich the Game Pass library with new games.
"This is, in my mind, the doorway, almost like a starting gun, to what I think is going to be a multi-year relay race of first-party titles," West said.
"I was sitting there watching the same Starfield presentation you were this morning and I was like… this is really the start of something that's going to then lead to Forza, then in 2024 as we go to Hellblade, and we think about Towerborne which is on the show floor, we think about Avowed, and we've got stories we haven't told yet as well, that are going to unfurl in 2024 and 2025."
Previously, the Xbox team acknowledged on multiple occasions that 2022 was a disappointing year for the company in terms of releasing their own games – Phil Spencer expressed this opinion too.
We'll see what Starfield brings when it launches on September 6 for PC and Xbox Series X|S. You can find the original story here.
