Avalanche Studios And Microsoft Announce New Xbox Exclusive ‘Contraband’

by Sage Ashford

During the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Xbox announced Contraband, an exclusive title made by Avalanche Studios, developers of the Just Cause franchise. The trailer itself doesn’t express very much, other than talking about how the game is meant to be an open world co-op experience.  The official Xbox website explains that it’s a co-op “smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan.” On Twitter they’ve also confirmed the game can be played solo as well, gaining the attention of many fans who prefer to play games alone.

One of the few titles announced without a release date, it’s likely it will be quite some time before Microsoft shows the game again, in the same way Avowed and Fable didn’t make an appearance at this year’s Games Showcase. This game is likely a 2023 or 2024 title, and fans probably shouldn’t expect to see much more from it for a while.
