What to Expect From Xbox & Starfield Showcase

While the full lineup of announcements is not confirmed, there are several highly anticipated titles and potential surprises you might see during the showcase:

  • Starfield: The focal point of the event, expect to see significant gameplay reveals and more information about this highly anticipated Bethesda Games title. We’re just three months out from the launch of the game and we’ve seen very little. All eyes will be on the upcoming game, and you can expect critique aplenty of this dedicated Starfield showcase come what may. Bethesda streams always generate hype and intrigue; let’s just hope it’s for the right reasons.
  • Cyberpunk 2077 Expansion: Look out for the reveal of the Phantom Liberty expansion, which might be showcased on Microsoft’s stage. We’re itching to see new gameplay for CDPR’s next big chapter, even if it’s technically available on various platforms other than Xbox.
  • Fable 4 Teaser: Microsoft has dropped hints suggesting a possible Fable 4 announcement, so keep an eye out for any related news or teasers. Microsoft will be hoping Fable 4 helps sway the increasing narrative that the upcoming Xbox game library is looking rather thin.
  • Forza Motorsport Reboot: Anticipate the presentation of the rebooted Forza Motorsport with the hope of receiving a confirmed release date.
  • Rare’s Projects: Look out for a potential Rare Games showcase that offers updates on its projects, such as Sea of Thieves and Everwild.
  • Persona Games: Leaks suggest the possibility of a Persona 3 remake subtitled Reloaded and a game called Persona 5 Tactics, both of which might make appearances.

Whether these particular games show up or not, prepare yourself for an exciting showcase event as Microsoft and Bethesda take the virtual stage for the Xbox Showcase and Starfield Direct.
