Canceling E3 2022 was a gut punch for gamers looking forward to a big showcase later this year. But, unlike in 2020, several studios are stepping up in place of ESA's prestigious event. Case in point, Microsoft.
According to the tech giant, it will hold an Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on June 12.
The details of the upcoming event, which is usually a part of the annual E3 expo, are still unknown right now. Microsoft claims that the show will "include everything you need to know about the diverse lineup of games coming soon to the Xbox ecosystem, including upcoming releases to Game Pass on Xbox and PC."
Given how Microsoft stole the show at E3 2021 with its lineup of day one launches for the Game Pass, it's safe to say that fans should expect the same.
Speaking of expectations, Microsoft's teaser art features the Xbox logo high up the stars, suggesting that the main highlight is Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi RPG, Starfield, which is coming out in November for the Xbox Series S/X and the PC. However, we can also presume that Microsoft will drop trailers for upcoming games like Redfall and maybe even the Perfect Dark reboot as well as the rumored The Mandalorian MMO.
