Contraband: Xbox exclusive has been in the works since 2018, a resume reveals

Contraband, the interesting Xbox exclusive developed by Avalanche Studios, has been in the works since 2018: a resume reveals it.

Contraband , the Xbox exclusive developed by Avalanche Studios, has been in the works since 2018 : this is revealed by the curriculum of an animator of the game, unearthed by the ever attentive Timur.

Announced with an official trailer at E3 2021, available on Game Pass from day one, Contraband already has three years of development behind it, or at least it’s been working on it since 2018.

Timings perhaps compatible with a more in-depth presentation than the simple teaser shown by Microsoft last June, which in fact does not reveal anything about Contraband ‘s gameplay , but perhaps the project boasts particular ambitions and will therefore require a certain waiting period.

“In Contraband you will discover a co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of Bayan in the 1970s,” reads the game’s synopsis on the Xbox official website, and there is little else for now.

As for the possible release date , according to Jeff Grubb the various Contraband, Avowed, Fable and Perfect Dark will not arrive before 2023 .
