Everything to know about Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase
Within the last few years, Xbox has not only recovered from the shortcomings during the Xbox One launch, but it has established itself to be the biggest video game publishing brand. From the Xbox Game Pass to being the world’s most powerful console, under the leadership of Phil Spencer, Xbox has created new pathways for video games going forward.
With the acquisition of ZeniMax, Xbox not only added multiple talented studios like Bethesda Softworks, Arkane, and Machine Games under its banner but also inherited several notable IPs like Doom, Wolfenstein, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Dishonored into its portfolio.
Halo Infinite and Starfield

Following less than amicable receptions, the game was delayed for a year. The developers have constantly kept the community updated with regular AMA and Inside Halo updates. The game is finally ready to make its grand return.
Starfield is the latest game by Bethesda Softworks and video game legend Todd Howard. The epic RPG will take the players into a grand adventure across the galaxy. Based on the release image, a major presence at Starfield alongside Halo Infinite is hinted at.
Battlefield 2042 and Far Cry 6 gameplay debut
The latest installment of the Battlefield franchise was recently revealed. EA later released a short teaser confirming the gameplay debut of Battlefield 2042 during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase.
However, Battlefield 2042 isn’t the only one with a brand new gameplay debut. Ubisoft also confirmed a gameplay debut for Far Cry 6 during the presentation.
