New Xbox Series X Launch Window Game Announced

Another new Xbox Series X game has been announced. More specifically, developer Dynamic Voltage Games has announced that Orphan of the Machine is coming to the new Xbox console "this fall," suggesting it could be a launch game, or at least arrive around the console's "holiday 2020" launch. In other words, at the very least, it will be a launch window game. That said, if you're looking for a game that showcases all of the next-gen power of the Xbox Series X, this isn't that. Orphan of the Machine is made by only one developer.

According to the one-man development team, Orphan of the Machine was inspired by many games, especially Metroid. In the game, you play a Dolphin tasked with ridding the ocean of robots.

"Orphan of the Machine was inspired by many games - a huge inspiration was Metroid," said the developer on Twitter. "You're going to have a jellyfish floating though space?! Fine, I'm going to have you fighting robots underwater."

At the moment of publishing, it's not only unclear when exactly the game will launch, but how much it will cost, and whether it's coming to other consoles, such as the PS5.
