Fall, it is that time of the year when most of the anticipated are launched. Last year we received titles like Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, etc. It is September now, so we are already in the fall season which means it’s time for some more new titles to drop. With the launch of new consoles, everyone is pretty excited to try them out for themselves. In this article, we would be talking about all Xbox games releasing in September 2021.
Microsoft launched their new consoles, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Playstation was not going to be left behind and came out with PlayStation 5. And just like that, began the availability issues among both of them. This is mainly due to the pandemic as most of the world was shut down, and the chip (CPU) manufacturers were not able to produce enough for the market. Now, let me remind you what all things that you use in your daily life require that chip, mobile phones, fridge, AC, TV, oven, microwave, basically any and all electronics that we use. And of course, our beloved consoles and graphics cards. With all that sad stuff out of the way, let’s discuss all the Xbox games releasing in September 2021.
