Xbox extends upcoming games showcase, promises ‘deeper looks’ at new games

Last year, Microsoft held not one but two showcases during E3 season. The main games showcase, with all the announcements and trailers, and an ‘extended' showcase a few days later, with some additional details and deeper dives into certain games. This year, Microsoft will be following that same formula, with an Xbox and Bethesda showcase on the 12th of June, and a second ‘extended' show taking place next week. 

The Xbox and Bethesda showcase will be taking place on Sunday, the 12th of June at 6PM BST. This is where we'll get new game announcements, trailers, hopefully a few release dates and our first look at Starfield gameplay.

On the 14th of June at 6PM BST, the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase Extended will air. During this second stream, Xbox will show “deeper looks” at the games announced during the main event. Previously, we would have expected Todd Howard to feature heavily in this show, with a Fallout 4-style deep dive into gameplay for Starfield, but now that Starfield has been pushed to 2023, Microsoft may save some details and gameplay snippets for closer to launch.

Currently, Xbox Game Studios have a ton of announced projects, including Fable, Perfect Dark, Everwild, Avowed, The Outer Worlds 2, Hellblade 2, and State of Decay 3. Those are just some of the games we already know about, so expect plenty of new game announcements at the end of this week.

KitGuru Says: Xbox has been very quiet since announcing the Activision Blizzard acquisition back in January, meanwhile Sony, Nintendo and other publishers have been making announcements throughout the first half of the year. It will be great to finally get some official news from the Xbox camp.
