Xbox has revealed exactly when gamers will be able to watch the Xbox Games Showcase : on June 11 at 10AM PT. The main Xbox event will be followed by a Starfield Direct, which will provide more information on Bethesda’s newest IP, Starfield.
Gamers have been excited about the 2023 edition of the Xbox Games Showcase since the initial announcement a few months ago. Expect the event to be full of content teasing the new release. A previous leak about the Xbox Games Showcase claimed a total of about two hours, with 90 minutes devoted to general gameplay and a full 30 minutes to Starfield, arguably one of the most anticipated titles of the year and Microsoft’s main gaming bet.

The Xbox Games Showcase will take place on June 11 at 10AM PT or 1PM ET. The event will let players learn about their studio’s current Xbox projects, and they’ll be able to find out what’s coming to console, PC, or Game Pass soon. Additionally, the traditional follow-up to the event, the Xbox Games Showcase Extended, was announced on June 13 at 10AM PT. This side event focused on interviews with the developers, who shared more information about the previously shown games. Both shows will be streamed live on multiple channels, including YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, and will be available in 30 different languages to accommodate gamers from around the world.
