Rumor has it that Xbox and Bethesda will be back in January with a very special showcase.
Now that 2023 has begun, it’s time to get back to good habits, even for video game publishers who were more discreet at the end of the year to enjoy the holidays. It seems that Xbox is one of the first to organize its big comeback, while a showcase with Bethesda could take place in a few days.
This is journalist and leaker Jez Corden from Windows Central which confirms this news. According to him, the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase should take place next January 25 around 9 p.m. in France. This will be the perfect opportunity to tell us about the next first-party nuggets to come, while many of them are expected in 2023. We take stock.
What to expect from the Xbox & Bethesda showcase?
According to Jez Corden, who gets his info from close sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans, the conference should focus on two flagship titles that we are looking forward to: red fall and Forza Motorsport. The first is an action game in which a band of genius mercenaries find themselves hunting down vampires and the second is a more competitive and centered version of the franchise’s circuit racing. Forza.
Xbox will also share new information regarding Minecraft Legends and a new license presented by ZeniMax Media Online. We would love to hear from Starfield, but the subject is for the moment prohibited according to the journalist. The adventure game could simply have its own showcase given its colossal importance within the Microsoft ecosystem.
It should not be forgotten that the two studios generally combine in June, at the time of E3, for a much more impressive overall presentation and filled with announcements of all kinds. Obviously, this information is still to be taken with a grain of salt, neither Xbox nor Bethesda has officially confirmed the holding of a conference. It will therefore be necessary to be patient before learning more about it.
