  • Microsoft announced the date for its annual Xbox Game Showcase event.
  • The date is set for this summer.
  • Many exciting A-list titles are coming, including often-delayed Starfield

It’s that time of the year again. Microsoft finally announced the event date of its Xbox Game Showcase event, coming to you on Sunday, June 11, 2023.

Game Showcase event is an annual celebration of upcoming titles coming to the console in 12 months cycle. This year, the tech giant has promised to bring more news on Bethesda’s hotly-anticipated utopian RPG Starfield.

Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.

Starfield is coming to Windows PCs and Xbox Series X/S on September 6, 2023. A broadcasting event, dubbed Starfield Direct, is taking place after the Game Showcase and will reveal more about all the tidbits of the game: mechanism, storyline, combat system, etc.

High expectations on Starfield

The game has been facing quite a lot of delays. A short teaser was released back in 2018 two years before Microsoft acquired Bethesda. Then, further, during the E3 2021, the devs promised a release window of November 2022. It was pushed to the first half of 2023 before settling for the current release date.

With this release, Starfield is officially Bethesda’s first IP (intellectual property) in over 25 years, so it only makes sense if they want to get everything right although some fans just couldn’t be patient to get their hands on the game.

Moreover, we can also expect more to come from Forza Motorsport, Hellblade 2, and Avowed during this event.

Like last year’s edition, Game Showcase 2023 will likely be livestreamed through Xbox’s various streaming channels on YouTube, Twitch, etc.
