Xbox Achievements Overhaul Rumored To Happen Sometime In 2024

Microsoft is set to bring an overhaul to Xbox Achievements sometime in the year 2024, based on the latest rumor.

Speaking during the latest episode of The XboxEra Podcast, co-host Shpeshal Nick shared that, based on what he’s heard from his sources, Microsoft is nearly done with its Xbox Achievements overhaul and that we should be seeing it sometime in 2024.

Nick didn’t mention any specifics regarding the Xbox Achievements overhaul, but it’s likely to include something similar to PlayStation Network’s Platinum trophy, which is generally obtained by unlocking all other achievements for a game. Other new features may include a revamped Achievements UI.

Previously, during an episode of The Xbox Two, co-host Jez Corden mentioned that he had talked with an Xbox executive at Gamescom specifically regarding the introduction of Platinum Achievements to the ecosystem. The aforementioned executive said that Microsoft is interested in revamping the achievements system. It’s essentially a matter of priorities and time for the company, suggesting that Platinum achievements similar to Platinum trophies will eventually be added to the Xbox ecosystem. Jez believes that the addition of Platinum achievements as well as other improvements to the achievement system will eventually come, but it’s just a matter of getting through the things Microsoft currently wants to get done before that.

Achievements are integrated into games to prolong the game’s appeal and motivate players to go beyond merely completing it. They serve as specific challenges set by the developer for players to meet. These achievements can align with the game’s primary objectives, like completing specific game levels, or involve secondary tasks such as discovering hidden power-ups or secret levels. They can also be entirely separate from the game’s primary or secondary goals, requiring players to complete the game in a particularly challenging or unconventional manner, such as speedrunning or playing without defeating any enemies. Some achievements may reference other achievements, often culminating in a single achievement that requires unlocking all others.
