Xbox Games Showcase is Coming on July 23

Hopefully With Real Gameplay

The Xbox Series X's Xbox Games Showcase has finally been announced to be taking place on July 23 at 9 AM PT, or 12 PM ET for those who are cool like me.

As you can see in the tweet, there's not too much to talk about. Geoff Keighley will be involved, and the Pre-Show will start at 8 AM PT, with the full show starting at 9 AM PT on YouTube, presumably on the Xbox YouTube channel.

 
 

One would hope that this showcase will do better than the previous announcement stream, which was derided as boring and indie-focused over more exciting AAA announcements that most have been waiting for. This showcase should bring the heat (and AAA announcements) with games like Halo Infinite being shown off for the first time, as well as whatever Obsidian Entertainment (rumored to be a Skyrim-esque RPG), Playground Games (probably Fable 4), Turn 10 (A New Forza?), and a bunch of other developers are planning on showing off.

The Xbox Games Showcase will take place on July 23 at 9 AM PT, most likely on their Xbox YouTube channel. We'll definitely be covering it, so stay tuned for more information as it comes.


Quick Take

While Xbox probably had the worst generation of exclusive games ever, I don't think that will be the case this time around. Being in second place really seems to have pissed them off, and with new leadership they have turned things around. It remains to be seen how many games we'll get, but this generation's Xbox should be a lot more than a Halo, Forza, and Gears machine. We might even get Fable too! 


What do you think of this news? Are you going to watch the event? Are you going to be buying an Xbox Series X? Let us know in the comments!

A very unflattering picture of my tired face.
