The Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct livestreams have been given a firm date and air time for everyone around the world – so it’s time to mark your calendars and prepare for this year’s not-E3 activities. On 11 June 2023 at 10:00 am PT, Bethesda and Microsoft will lift the lid on a number of future games for Xbox and Xbox Game Pass, including the highly-anticipated Starfield.

You can expect this game to appear during the Xbox Games Showcase – as well as the post-show deep dive segment, Starfield Direct, which should provide greater insight into the upcoming blockbuster after being in development for several years.

Update: The Xbox Game Showcase and Starfield Direct have now aired. You can find a wrapup of all the games, trailers, and announcements on the following page:

These shows will also be followed by the annual Xbox Games Showcase Extended, which will air on 13 June 2023 at 10:00 am PT – and provide an array of first looks, gameplay showcases, and surprises for the latest games.

At this stage, we have very little idea about what could be on show, but there are plenty of in-development Xbox games that are deserving of a renewed spotlight – Fable and Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 amongst them. Whatever appears, the event will likely be worth tuning in for.
