Xbox Games Showcase and Redacted Direct Set for June 9

Xbox Games Showcase and Redacted Direct Set for June 9 - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 30 April 2024 / 1,465 Views

Microsoft has announced the Xbox Game Showcase will return on June 9, starting at 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET / 6:00 pm UK. 

The main Xbox Game Showcase will feature games from across first-party Xbox studios - Activision, Blizzard, Bethesda, and Xbox Game Studios, as well as games from third-party partners.

Like last year there will be a double-feature with the main showcase followed by a "Redacted" Direct that will feature a "special deep-dive into the next installment of a beloved franchise." It is likely this Direct will feature the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise. 

The Xbox Game Showcase will be kicking of a week's worth of gaming coverage on Xbox Wire and The Official Xbox Podcast. There will be updates and deep-dives on a ton of games.

I'm eagerly anticipating State of Decay 3; I really hope it lives up to expectations!

Release dates? Probably not for those as they are all likely releases for next year, more likely to get a generic release window of 2025 or possibly if we are really lucky a release quarter for 2025 like Spring or Fall. State of Decay 3 I'm skeptical is even 2025 because we heard it had troubled development the first few years, it may be 2026.

LIkely 2025 releases we may see on this summer showcase will probably be:
-Gears 6
-Outer Worlds 2
-Project Mara
-Perfect Dark
-Clockwork Empire
-TES 4 Oblivion remaster
-Contraband
-Fable
-South of Midnight

The rest of the announced Xbox games like OD, TES 6, and State of Decay 3, and Everwild will probably be 2026 or later releases and won't be on this showcase most likely, I think they will stick to 2024 and 2025 games mainly.

Cool, one of my favorite times of the year, even with E3 gone we still get some great presentations.

Since E3 is gone, Xbox does consistently put out great summer showcases in its place.
