The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase starts in a few hours, and Microsoft has still been fairly tight-lipped on its exact content. Insider Tom Henderson has indicated that Starfield (which will take up roughly 20 to 25 percent of the 95-minute runtime) and the next Forza Motorsport (reportedly coming in Spring 2023) will appear. But there hasn’t been much hard confirmation until now.
As spotted by The Verge’s Tom Warren, Microsoft Azure Specialist Paul T. recently posted on LinkedIn, “Viewers can expect appearances from anticipated Xbox-exclusive flagships like #Starfield, #ForzaMotorsport, #Redfall, and #Avowed. Xbox has a growing number of in-house studios, and with Bethesda’s teams now onboard, more franchises than ever will take to the virtual stage.”
So while not technically an announcement from Xbox Game Studios, this is the closest to official confirmation that we’ve received thus far. Other possible titles that could appear include Obsidian’s Pentiment, Stoic Studio’s Project Belfry, Oxide Games’ Project Indus, and Forza Horizon 5’s Hot Wheels expansion. Certain Affinity’s battle royale mode for Halo Infinite, codenamed Tatanka, could also be announced.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase starts at 10 AM PT today. Stay tuned for more details and live coverage from the show.
