Xbox Confirms Showcase For June 2024

Towards the conclusion of the most recent Official Xbox Podcast, Xbox has announced its intention to hold its June showcase for 2024. This annual event serves as Xbox’s premier platform for revealing insights into the projects underway at its first-party studios and the games they are developing. Typically, the showcase also features announcements regarding third-party partnerships with Game Pass, unveiling new games slated for release in the latter half of the year and beyond.

Responding to recent speculation within the gaming community about third-party collaborations, Phil Spencer, Matt Booty, and Sarah Bond addressed these concerns in a business update episode of the Official Xbox Podcast. During the discussion, Phil Spencer confirmed that four Xbox exclusive titles will be released on rival platforms in the near future. While he refrained from disclosing the specific titles, he hinted that two of them are live service games, while the remaining two offer smaller experiences. It is speculated that Hi-Fi Rush, Pentiment, Sea of Thieves, and Grounded are among the games Spencer referred to. Additionally, Spencer clarified that Starfield and Indiana Jones and the Great Circle will remain exclusive to Xbox.

Towards the podcast’s conclusion, Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios, briefly mentioned preparations for this year’s June Xbox showcase, confirming the event’s occurrence. Although no specific date was provided, given that it is currently February, fans can anticipate further details regarding the event’s timing in the coming months.

In affirming the June showcase, Booty referenced titles such as Indiana Jones and the Great Circle and Obsidian’s Avowed, both of which were prominently featured at Xbox’s Developer Direct event last month. Since these games are slated for release in the fall, it is reasonable to expect that they will receive official release dates during the June showcase. Booty also hinted at additional projects in development that the team plans to showcase. With it having been several years since the unveiling of Xbox’s Perfect Dark reboot and with fervent anticipation among Gears of War fans for the rumored sixth mainline installment, it is possible that updates on these titles may be provided, although this remains unconfirmed. Xbox enthusiasts may also anticipate updates on games such as Clockwork Revolution or South of Midnight, both of which were revealed at last June’s Xbox showcase.

When Can Xbox Fans Expect The June Showcase?

Xbox is likely aiming to hold its showcase in early June, as it has traditionally done in previous years. Fans should stay tuned to Xbox’s social media channels, as well as platforms like Geoff Keighly’s Summer Game Fest, throughout the spring months for further announcements regarding the dates of upcoming summer showcase events.
