This release date is the same for every console and throughout the world.

What about the last console gen?

The Xbox One was released in late-2013 and the first MotoGP game on the system was MotoGP 15. MotoGP 22 is still on the old-gen Xbox though, as the transition to the new systems is still ongoing.

Milestone are still releasing their games on the previous generation of console. This is also the case for big releases as like Battlefield as well.

TAKING THE INITIATIVE: MotoGP was available asap on Xbox One and Series X

Obviously, don't expect the same performance as those on next-gen hardware. However, it is good news for those still on last-gen, as they too can jump on to the game come April!

All of the features included

While the graphics, frame rate and sound won't be as good on the One as it will be for the Series X, that's pretty much where the disadvantages end. When it comes to the tracks, riders, and bikes, everything that's included in the Series X version will also be on the One.

This includes new features such as the 2009 season, which is included for all versions of the game.

CRYSTAL CLEAR: The graphics in MotoGP 22 will be brilliant on next-gen

This will be despite the One not being as powerful of a system as its next-gen equivalent. However, the One version will be down-scaled graphically, but it won't look bad by any means. If you don't have a 4K TV, you might not even notice a huge difference between the next and old-gen versions of MotoGP 22.
