More rumors have surfaced online suggesting an imminent Microsoft game show. Among these new speculations were also reports about the show’s format.
Speculation, according to which Microsoft will soon present a program dedicated to the corporation’s next games, is becoming more and more credible. There have been rumors about this for several weeks, with the latest hinting at what the format of the event will look like.
- the source is jezcordena Windows Central journalist who is usually very knowledgeable about Microsoft matters.
- According to Corden, Xbox fans won’t have to wait long for the event.
- He also claims that the show will have a format more similar to a Nintendo Direct, rather than a big presentation straight out of E3. In other words, we should not expect a multi-hour event with an audience. Instead, we will get more of a stream that will focus solely on showing games.
Recall that, according to previous rumors, a new game from the Japanese studio Tango Gameworks (authors of the Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Evil Within series) will be revealed. It will not be a great AAA production. Instead, we’ll be getting a smaller, more experimental project, in the style of Obsidian Entertainment’s Pentiment.
Microsoft is also expected to show off Redfall and Starfield and reveal their exact release dates. We should also see the second expansion for Forza Horizon 5 (slated for release in early 2023) and Forza Motorsport. These items seem like certainties, but we’re also looking forward to new videos for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Contraband, Avowed, Minecraft: Legends, Ara: History Untold, and State of Decay 3. We also wouldn’t be offended by updates from more distant projects, like Everwild, Perfect Dark or The Outer Worlds 2.
Microsoft badly needs this show, as 2022 turned out to be a very disappointing year in terms of games from the Redmond giant. The company released just two small titles last year in the form of As Dusk Falls and Pentiment, as well as version 1.0 of Grounded, which went into early access in 2020. Fans were also very disappointed by Microsoft’s absence from the show. The Game Awards 2022.
