We heard last week that Microsoft's big July Xbox Series X showcase wouldn't be happening until later in the month. Now, we have a more specific date narrowed down thanks to new reports. Sources are also indicating that third-party games will be shown alongside first-party titles.
According to VideoGameChronicle and another reporter, Jeff Grubb, Microsoft is planning to hold its second next-gen games showcase on the 23rd of July. However, this is just the ‘current plan', so things could change. As we saw last month, Sony's own presentation also moved dates, so these things can easily move around.
According to VGC, one big game that will be shown is the first project from ‘The Initiative', the studio Microsoft formed in 2018, led by Darrell Gallagher, who previously spearheaded the Tomb Raider reboot at Crystal Dynamics. Currently, rumours are suggesting that The Initiative is rebooting Perfect Dark, a long dormant franchise for Xbox.
The third-party games said to be making an appearance are currently unknown. Microsoft should be ready to confirm its plans in the next week or two.
