What to Expect from Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase
The postponement of Starfield to next year disappointed many fans who expected the game to 2022, but according to an image leaked on the social network Reddit, it is possible that the title has a gameplay trailer presented during the event. It wouldn’t be unlikely either that Microsoft would announce a release date, as the game is slated for early 2023.
One of the games that is almost certainly present in the presentation is a remaster of the classic GoldenEye 007, originally released in 1997 for the Nintendo 64. Recently users have found Achievements for the game on Microsoft’s official website and it is quite likely that it will be announced by surprise during the event.

Journalist Jeff Gerstmann of the website Pure Xbox commented on his podcast that he saw a new Minecraft game in development and that, from the images, it appears to be a real-time strategy game. He didn’t mention the game would be at the event, but it’s a possibility. XboxEra journalist Nick “Shpeshal Nick” Baker mentioned an alleged Gears of War Collection, which would bring together all the Gears series games, probably similar to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Finally, there is the possibility that Bethesda will present its Indiana Jones game, announced in early 2021, which has not had further details revealed. There are even rumors that the company is working on more projects in partnership with Disney, which could bring surprises from major franchises from the house of Mickey.
