The company confirmed that it will make a return to Los Angeles for the annual summer showcase, although it didn't specifically mention E3.
Xbox has confirmed that it is returning to Los Angeles for the annual summer showcase this year.
The company has shared a blog post where it recapped its yesterday's live event, Developer_Direct, during which various Xbox studios provided updates on a handful of Xbox first-party titles, including the details behind the upcoming Forza Motorsport and the release date of Redfall as well as made a surprise announcement of High-Fi Rush, a new title from Tango Gameworks that is already available for Windows PC and Xbox Series X|S.
Developer_Direct, however, didn't provide any details on Bethesda's upcoming Starfield – as Xbox previously stated, it wanted to "dedicate the proper amount of time for a deep dive" into the game, which is why it claimed it was preparing a standalone Starfield event.
In this latest blog post, the company confirmed that a standalone show for Starfield is in the works and will be held at a later date.
In addition, Xbox shared that its teams are "working hard and look forward to sharing even more of what is next for our fans when we return to Los Angeles for our yearly Showcase this summer."
Xbox last held a physical showcase in Los Angeles in 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift towards remote-first events.
Although Xbox specifically referred to a showcase in Los Angeles during the summer, near the E3 window, it is worth noting that it did not directly mention the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which is scheduled to be held from June 13 to 16 this year, returning to the Los Angeles Convention Center for the first time since 2019.
