INTRO: According to Dolby’s announcement, users can expect massive visual improvement in games because of the technology. you’ll be ready to experience 40 times brighter highlights, 10 times deeper blacks, and up to 12-bit color depth, provided your TV supports that. Obviously, Dolby Vision and Atmos support also require that the games you’re playing are compatible with the technologies.
This isn’t Xbox’s first time getting Dolby support, by the way. Current gen Xbox consoles support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR. However, that only applies to media like compatible Netflix titles among other streaming services. On the opposite hand, the Xbox One X also supported for gaming. However, even that never made it out of the Insider phase.
Introducing the next level of gaming.
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are the first consoles ever with gaming in Dolby Vision® (coming soon) and Dolby Atmos® (available at launch).
@Xbox, welcome to gaming in Dolby. https://t.co/5lkpVT8ntb

However, Microsoft’s next-gen consoles are going to be fully compatible with Dolby’s technologies, which suggests you’ll expect impressive graphics from compatible games.
Meanwhile, it’s unclear if Sony’s next-gen offerings will have support for Atmos/Vision or not. So far, Sony has avoided making a gift of an excessive amount of about the PlayStation 5, but hopefully we get more information soon
