Xbox Showcase March 26: Jeff Grubb calls for keeping expectations low

Xbox Showcase March 26

According to Windows Central, Microsoft will soon announce an Xbox Showcase for March 26, the Redmond company has not yet confirmed any events for this month but many reporters are sure it will happen soon, including Jeff Grubb.

The famous VentureBeat signing intervened in the XboxERA podcast declaring that they were aware of the event in question and inviting everyone to keep expectations low. According to Grubb, the March 26 event will focus on Xbox ecosystem services and smaller games such as indie productions (The Ascent is mentioned) and first party games such as Age of Empires 4.

Age of Empires 4 should be unveiled in April again according to the words of Jeff Grubb, so in March we will probably see only a teaser of the game and nothing else. Certainly in the event at the end of the month there will be no space for Halo Infinite, Fable, Perfect Dark and the other great productions in development at the Xbox Game Studios.

It would therefore be a minor showcase waiting for the major events of the summer season, with E3 2021 (digital only) which should see Microsoft at the forefront of the absolute protagonists of the early summer show. Did you know? The rumor has returned that he would like to buy Xbox SEGA and Konami but this eventuality seems highly unlikely at present.

Microsoft might have a gaming showcase planned for as soon as later this month.

According to a new report from WindowsCentral, the Xbox manufacturer will hold an upcoming broadcast on March 26. The outlet reports that while rumors had previously pointed to a showcase taking place on March 23, their own sources now tell them that plans have shifted slightly, with the planned showcase being pushed back three days.

However, WindowsCentral can't confirm what this showcase will actually contain. The outlet writes that it might be advisable to 'temper expectations' surrounding the broadcast, as it might purely focus on tech. However, they also write that the show might offer glimpses at Xbox games planned for release at some point later this year.

Just yesterday, a roundtable between Xbox and Bethesda took place, to celebrate the acquisition of the latter by the former company. Figureheads like Phil Spencer and Pete Hines spoke briefly about what the acquisition would mean for Bethesda games going forward, with Spencer stating that some planned future Bethesda releases will be exclusive to Xbox platforms.

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that 20 total Bethesda games would be immediately arriving on Xbox Game Pass. Hits like Dishonored, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Oblivion, Fallout 4, and more were added to Xbox's streaming service yesterday.
