From MS specifically? Not much at the moment. I mean, Crackdown has always been a fun series for me but I don't plan on paying anything close to full price for it. Though I'm still fairly excited it's coming and I hope it turns out fun. 

Sea of Thieves, PUBG, and State of Decay 2 aren't really my things as I'm not big on multiplayer or zombies. 

I'll keep playing Forza Horizon 3 and the DLCs for the next little while and continue with some non-PC multiplats (FFXV, RDR2 when it comes out, etc.) on my 1X. I also still need to finish Ori come to think of it. If I manage that I'll get Ori: Will of the Wisps at launch.

I guess Halo Wars 2 if I can find it for $20 CAD (lowest I've seen it is $25 so far).

I’m not sure if I’m getting Sea of Thieves yet but I’m keeping an eye on it.

I am hoping Crackdown 3 turns out good. Like I’ve said before though, it’s got such a bizarre development and so little has been shown, wouldn’t be surprised at all if it slips out of 2018 or is canceled entirely.

Very much looking forward to SoD2. Probably the biggest game anticipation I’ve had since the first Titanfall. It’s gonna be epic.

There were a lot of smaller, indie titles MS showed off at E3 that are supposed to be 2018 like Darwin Project, Ashen, and Last Night. I plan on getting a Scorpio whenever I replace the 4k TV my son broke, so when I do get it I have a big backlog to start/finish playing. Quantum Break, Halo Wars 2, Shadow of War, Gears 4, Recore, Doom, Fallout, among others. I’ll also finally buy a Forza game this gen, probably 7.

Tons of good third party games. Metro stands out, and maybe Anthem if it launches 2018. Red Dead 2, FarCry 5. If the new Virtual On game that launches on PS4/Vita comes to the US, I’ll buy if it’s any good. VC4 as well. I also look forward to finally seeing what the Zelda fuss is about since I have a Switch now.

Sea of Thieves (used to love Rare so I'm hopeful this can be a renaissance for them)
Far Cry 5
Kingdom Come: Deliverance (played it at E3 and sat in on a dev presentation, seem like it's got a lot of potential)
Might try PUBG
Maybe Monster Hunter World eventually, though I'm already up to my neck in RPGs

There's still a handful of games in my backlog that I've pushed off to the side between Switch coming out and all the games I've been reviewing like Forza Horizon 3, Cup Head, Rare Replay, and Far Cry Primal so I still gotta burn through a good chunk of those.

Lets see..

Crackdown 3
Sea of Thieves
Ori 2 if it releases this year
Metro Exodus
Darksiders 3
Jurassic World Evolution

I may not buy all these games, but these are the ones on the top of my list and will keep an eye on.

for me, its:
Farcry 5
Read Dead Redemption
PUBG once the framerate gets more stable
The Crew 2 (the first one was a letdown, so I'm only cautiously optimistic
State of Decay 2
Forza Horizon 4
and I loved crackdown 1, so dare I say......Crackdown 3.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

It's going to be a great year for the Xbox one X. It's not so much the exclusive games but rather having the best consoles version of 3rd party games.
