Apple Arcade has been steadily releasing new games every week or so and updating others. Even though the gaming service has amassed an impressive catalog of games, we’re still waiting on some of the biggest titles promised at launch. Here are the games we can’t wait to play once they’re available.

When Box Project was announced for Apple Arcade, there weren’t many details available aside from a photo of a cardboard box. Information is still sparse online, but CNET reached out to Brazilian gaming studio Aquiris for more information. A video from YouTuber MrMacRight showed just a few seconds of Box Project in early June and suggested the name might be a working title. The images looked like a medieval style scene with a Wii-like character wielding a sword while battling little green goblins.
Enter the Construct
Developer: Directive Games
Not many details were available about Enter the Construct last year, except that it was expected to be available at Apple Arcade’s launch. At that time, the images and videos showed the game as a first-person sci-fi shooter. Since then, there has been little to no information about Enter the Construct, so it’s possible it’s taken on a new name or has been canceled. CNET reached out to Directive Games and we’ll update when we hear back.
