After a somewhat weak 2022 for Xbox, it seems that its best cards will soon be revealed for this very promising year 2023. Yesterday Microsoft announced a new format event similar to Nintendo Direct or State of Play, whose first edition will take place on January 25.
Xbox & Bethesda Developer_Direct will bring together three long-awaited first-party games from Microsoft: Minecraft Legends, Forza Motorsport 8 and Redfall. Oh, and also news for The Elder Scrolls Online.
What happens to Starfield? Do not be alarmed, because it was also confirmed that Bethesda’s space RPG will have its own solo event (will be released in the first half of 2023).
The Elder Scrolls Online – Video with all its features
It is hoped that we will have new details, impressions and gameplay of these three games of Xbox and Bethesda. Additionally, the event will feature short interviews with developers from Arkane Austin, Mojang, Turn 10 Studios, and ZeniMax Online Studios.
In the last hours there has been a great stir in the networks, because the German version of Xbox Wire has revealed a fact that we could not read in any other statement.
Dates for 2023 Xbox exclusives?
In the official Developer_Direct announcement A detail has been discovered that we did not realizeand that we can only read on the German Microsoft Xbox website.
Redfall, Forza Motorsport 8 and Minecraft Legends are the main stars of the event, which also leads to a conclusion: they will be the first to reach Xbox Series X | S, One and Windows.
Here is an excerpt from the German Xbox Wire statement:
”Developer_Direct will focus on amazing features, extensive gameplay showcases, and release dates shared for the first time for big Xbox titles coming later’‘.
Does this mean that we will have release dates for all three titles? It is very possible, since rumors have been circulating about them for a long time, encouraging for Xbox gamers.
Redfall is the new game from Arkane Austin, which will take over from Deathloop to take us to an apocalyptic world ruled by vampires. The idea is that it is “the Far Cry” of Arkane, with a strong cooperative multiplayer component.
Redfall is said to hit stores in May, which leaves Starfield in a compromising situation. Will it be delayed to fall or will we see it before summer?
For its part, Minecraft Legends is a multiplatform spin-off of the popular Mojang game, which if all goes well It will be released in the spring of this 2023. It will be available on Game Pass out.
As for Forza Motorsport 8, there is talk of a release date for this spring, which places the playtests before the month of March. We remind you that it will be a return to simulation, after the craziest Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Horizon 5.
Will we have dates for these three long-awaited Xbox games? It is very possible, although we will have to wait for the next January 25 to know. Developer_Direct can be followed live from 21:00 Spanish peninsular time on Twitch and YouTube.
