Following an official announcement from Xbox Gaming Marketing's General Manager, Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct 2023 will officially be held on June 11, 2023. With the cancelation of E3, many developers and publishers are either making their way to Summer Game Fest 2023 or are hosting their own events.

Fans from around the world are expecting a lot from both the Xbox Games Showcase and the Starfield Direct event. In general, numerous gamers are eagerly waiting for Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi action role-playing game. Officially announced back in 2018, the game is yet to go live and players are excited to try out the title for themselves.

Where to watch the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct 2023

To watch the event, all players need to do is head over to Xbox and Bethesda's official Twitch and YouTube channels on June 11. Based on the information that was recently revealed, the Xbox Games Showcase is scheduled to commence at the following times:

  • PT: June 11, 10am
  • ET: June 11, 1pm
  • BST: June 11, 6pm
  • CET: June 11, 7pm

Once this event concludes, Starfield Direct will be aired on the same channels. Just like last year, there will also be a follow-up stream known as the Xbox Games Showcase Extended. The stream will begin on June 13, at the same times as mentioned above, and will include more in-depth information about everything that's announced during the showcase itself.

As of now, it's difficult to guess what games will be showcased in the Xbox Games Showcase. Nevertheless, fans can certainly expect to see brand new titles being unveiled at the event. Not only that, they could also showcase other video games that would be available on the Game Pass on the very same day that they go live.

What to expect from Starfield Direct?

Given that the release date has already been announced, it's hard to predict what to expect from this event. The developers might just end up announcing the different editions of Starfield, along with some more gameplay footage. Not only that, the developers could announce some DLCs, but that's slightly unlikely, considering that the game hasn't even gone live yet.

As for Starfield, it's widely believed that the game will support community-created mods, with the developers very likely to elaborate on the modding aspect as well. Overall, fans can expect a deep dive into the title at the Starfield Direct event. It's one of the most anticipated titles of the year, and gamers from around the world will be looking forward to more information about it.

The month of June is turning out to be really interesting, with the Summer Game Fest preceding the Xbox Games Showcase and the Starfield Direct. While many titles are expected to be showcased during the month of June, even more could be announced. Despite E3 being canceled, gamers and video game fans won't be deprived of their year's worth of gaming goodness!
