Earlier this year, in January, Microsoft held an Xbox and Bethesda digital event that revealed the Redfall and Minecraft Legends release dates, as well as the shadow drop of the rhythmic beat-em-up, Hi-Fi Rush. The event also showcased the latest addition to hit the racing franchise, Forza Motorsport, which is said to be the most realistic and technically advanced racing game to ever hit the market.
During the January event, it was also brought to light that Xbox would be making its way back to LA to share even more news and releases with Microsoft fans. On top of that, during an Xbox On interview conducted by host Charleyy Hodson, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer was asked if there would be more news shared with fans prior to this upcoming Xbox Game Showcase. According to the executive, a lot of the focus would be on preparing for the Showcase event coming in June. That being said, he mentioned that in the interim, there might be a few more announcements similar in scope to the port of GoldenEye.
This announcement came alongside the news that Bethesdas Starfield's release will be delayed once more. Yet, the upcoming game will have its own presentation after the showcase. Originally, it was set to release during the first half of 2023, but as we now know, it has been pushed back to September 6, 2023.
