The Squanch Games team is currently working on the High on Life shooter, which will be an Xbox One, Xbox Series X exclusive at release | S and PC.
They seem to be excited about the collaboration with Microsoft, the team has this to say about the collaboration with Xbox:
Working with Xbox is just a dream. They are very supportive of us in their efforts to promote High on Life, and they have completely stayed away from any decisions in the development of the game. This is what we like. We can call Xbox the ideal partner.
Recall that the release of High on Life will take place on December 13, immediately after the release the game will be in Game Pass.
