Sometimes new exclusive Xbox titles aren't developed by companies that are part of Xbox Game Studios. That's the case with As Dusk Falls, a new IP revealed during the 2020 Xbox Games Showcase for upcoming Xbox Series X titles.
What is As Dusk Falls?
As Dusk Falls is a new IP being developed by Interior/Night and published by Xbox Game Studios. It's described as being an "Interactive Drama" and is probably similar to past games from Quantic Dream and Supermassive, such as Heavy Rain and Until Dawn.
The game is presented in a style reminiscent of graphic novels, using a mixture of 2D and 3D technology. It starts off in 1999 in Arizona, where a robbery goes wrong and causes two families to collide. The game then follows these characters over the next 30 years.

As Dusk Falls is being developed by Interior/Night, a new studio in London, U.K. that was founded by Caroline Marchal. Marchal is a veteran game developer who previously worked at Quantic Dream, a studio that specialized in interactive drama-type games. Interior/Night is a small team of 40 developers who want to make games that anyone can be interested in.

As Dusk Falls release date
At this moment, we don't have a release date or event a release window. Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios, has previously stated that games released in the first year of the Xbox Series X being available will also come to Xbox One. Since As Dusk Falls is coming to Xbox One, we can possibly extrapolate that it's planned to release at some point in 2021.
