What you need to know

  • Vanquish is an incredibly popular third-person shooter on Xbox 360.

A few years ago, a Bayonetta and Vanquish bundle leaked on various retailers for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Unfortunatley, Sega didn't confirm that remastered versions of both games were in the works and the story just faded away. However, we now know that at least Vanquish is coming soon.

Twitter user "WalkingCat" posted a link to the Microsoft Store which opened a page for Vanquish. However, this isn't the backward compatible version but a remaster. The description says that the game runs at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X.

The release date says February 18, 2020. Since that's a Tuesday, this seems very likely. However, the Microsoft Store is known for a lot of placeholder release dates so take that with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation.

An overpopulated Earth suffocating under limited resources looks to Providence, the solar-powered space colony for support. When Providence is suddenly taken over by a mutinous group and its technology used to devastate cities, it's up to a specially trained unit of space marines to reclaim the colony.
