[GameSpot] - Microsoft Confirms Xbox Showcase This Summer In LA, But Doesn't Mention E3

Recommended Posts

Following the Xbox Developer Direct event this week, Microsoft confirmed that it will have multiple other upcoming showcases in the future. These will include the previously announced Starfield "deep dive" presentation and an event in Los Angeles this summer.

Starfield wasn't included in the Developer Direct so Microsoft and Bethesda could "dedicate the proper amount of time" to it.

As for the summer showcase, Microsoft said, "Our teams are working hard and look forward to sharing even more of what is next for our fans when we return to Los Angeles for our yearly showcase this summer."

Microsoft did not mention E3 by name, but the company is historically known to host its own Xbox showcase as part of the big show. With E3 coming back this year, it seems likely Microsoft is referring to its E3 showcase, but nothing is confirmed at this stage.

Presumably the Starfield showcase will take place before the Xbox event this summer, but we don't know that for sure as of yet. Starfield is poised to be one of Xbox's biggest games--if not the biggest--of 2023. Fans have been waiting a while for it, as the game was originally set for release in November 2022 before shifting to 2023 alongside Arkane's Redfall. That game is now slated for May 2.

E3 2023 is scheduled for June 13-16 under new management by ReedPop, the group that organizes PAX and Star Wars Celebration, among other events. For more, check out GameSpot's rundown of everything we know about E3 2023.

The Xbox Developer Direct event brought news of the release dates for Redfall and Minecraft Legends, along with new footage and details about the next Forza Motorsport game. Additionally, out of nowhere, Tango Gameworks announced Hi-Fi Rush, a rhythm action game releasing today, January 25, on Xbox Game Pass and PC.
