Problematic editorial policy
While many games are far from exploiting the full potential of the Series S Series. One of the terms defined by Xbox leadership is that every game released for the Series 100% with the less powerful version.
Therefore, Baldur’s Gate 3 It hasn’t reached Microsoft consoles yet, as the Series S was initially unable to run split-screen multiplayer. This would limit an important part of the gaming experience, violating the terms of publication on the platform.
Apparently Larian Studios has already addressed the issue and is preparing to present it Baldur’s Gate 3 for the Xbox series. However, the incident made it clear that this internal policy of launching games on Microsoft platforms creates a limitation in the generation due to the more modest hardware of the budget model.

This would ensure that developers have more resources to work with and release games at the same time for the Xbox series, PlayStation 5 and who knows, also for Nintendo Switch 2.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that the Xbox series will no longer receive these titles. However, companies will have more time to optimize their games for weaker consoles without resorting to delays due to a contractual clause.
