Xbox Direct Showcase Coming This Month


A new report claims Xbox are set to hold a Developer Direct later this month, featuring new information on the brand's upcoming games.

The report comes via Windows Central, with sources saying that it will be Xbox's first Developer Direct. The show has yet to be formally announced, but is rumored to be broadcast on Jan. 25 though the date could change.

Windows Central claims the show will be hosted by both Xbox and Bethesda, featuring titles such as Redfall, Minecraft Legends, Forza Motorsport, and content from ZeniMax Online Studios. Notably, upcoming Bethesda RPG Starfield is said to be absent from the Direct.

While the studio has reconfirmed that Starfield will be releasing in 2023, the window is still sometime in either Q1 or Q2. Fans expecting to see an update on Starfield may be disappointed.

According to the outlet, the showcase will be more akin to a Nintendo Direct or PlayStation's State of Play, offering an "intimate look at some upcoming exclusives."

Xbox releases were notably quiet throughout 2022, but perhaps this new Developer Direct could spark the roll out of more regular updates.
