Grounded is an upcoming multiplayer survival game from Obsidian Entertainment. The title focuses on children who have shrunk down to the size of ants and must fight for themselves against the perils of the microscopic world.
According to the Steam page, the full version of Grounded should launch in 2021, but it'll be in early access before that. The listing was reported on by WCCFtech.
It seems like it should hit Steam Early Access and possibly Xbox Game Preview sometime in 2020. A multiplayer game definitely needs feedback from the community, and that's exactly what Obsidian is doing.

Looks interesting. Are the characters the same as Xbox Avatars? That would be a great setup if they allowed you to use your Xbox avatar directly in the game. I think it's an underutilized feature. There were at least a few on 360 that did that, not sure about Xbox One
