Xbox is planning a huge summer showcase for later this year.is one of the most interesting game companies out there because they haven’t been doing the things that other platform owners are doing, for better or worse. They’ve focused on big services like Xbox Game Pass, and instead of trying to compete with PlayStation for big cinematic and prestige games, they’ve chosen to focus on more casual experiences with things like multiplayer and co-op at the forefront. Xbox has also made an effort to buy major publishers like Activision and Bethesda to help deepen their own offerings for both Xbox Game Pass and the platform as a whole. That said, many were disappointed that 2022 saw virtually no major first-party releases on Xbox.
2023 seems to be different and that was made clear in yesterday’s Developer Direct. Xbox showed off a number of games coming in the first half of 2023,that’s being well received, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Already and that will be followed by another showcase sometime in the summer, probably around June to align with E3.
‘As we previously announced, to dedicate the right amount of time for a deep dive into Bethesda Game Studios’ star fielda standalone show is in the works,” Xbox said. “In addition to this, our teams are hard at work and look forward to sharing even more of what’s next for our fans when we return to Los Angeles for our annual Showcase this summer. .”
Xbox hasn’t said what will appear in this summer showcase, but we can probably expect a mix of third-party games and first-party titles as in years past. There are a lot of games that have been silent for years, like perfect darkness Y Fable, so maybe we’ll get lucky and see these games there. Either way, there’s a lot on the horizon, so we can probably expect a pretty well-rounded show.
