The Xbox Showcases and Starfield Direct will take place on Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. There is currently no official runtime for the events, but we can make an educated guess given the previous live streams, and expect it will be around an hour long for each showcase. The live streams will be available to watch on Xbox’s official Youtube, Twitch, and Facebook channels.

In the Xbox Wire blog post, the publisher promised there will be “new surprises and first-looks” from the company’s internal studios and many of its third-party partners. No specific games are mentioned, but this could include some announced projects like the Fable reboot, Senua’s Sage: Hellblade 2, The Outer Worlds 2, and the new Forza Motorsport to name a few. They also stated that the showcase will focus on games across PC, Xbox, and Game Pass.

Following directly after the Xbox Showcase, Bethesda will be live streaming a Starfield Direct, which is set to include a ton more information about the upcoming sci-fi game from the studio. This will include new gameplay, developer interviews, behind-the-scenes looks at the game, and more.

Like last year, there will also be an Xbox Games Showcase Extended follow-up stream on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST, which will have in-depth interviews and updates focused on the games that will be revealed during the showcase.

This will likely be Microsofts biggest showcase of the year given its proximity to when E3 would usually be happening if it wasn’t canceled this year. Regardless of what’s shown, it’s likely that fans are excited to see what new games and updates the publisher has in store and to get their most in-depth look at Starfield before it releases on September 6 this year.
