Xbox and Bethesda held their first joint conference in 2021 after Microsoft agreed to acquire Bethesda for $7.5 billion. Microsoft announces plans to release five new first-party games between July 2022 and June 2023; previously announced titles include Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga, Fable, Avowed, and State of Decay 3.
Bethesda recently delayed two of its upcoming titles, Starfield and Redfall, until early 2023, but you can expect to see more of those games during the June 12 presentation. Bethesda’s other successful franchises include Fallout, the Elder Scrolls series, and Doom, as well as newer releases like Deathloop and Dishonored.
Xbox will follow up the press conference with another extended showcase event on June 14, focused on gameplay footage, hands-on demos, and developer interviews. The Extended Xbox Games Showcase will air for approximately 90 minutes on Xbox Social Channels starting at 1 p.m. ET on June 14. We’ll know more about the games that will be involved after Sunday’s presentation.
