Xbox and Bethesda

Although E3 2022 has been officially canceled, we will still see some showcases during the summer. The first to be officially announced is that of Xbox, unveiled over the last few hours with a long article on the official blog of the Microsoft brand and relaunched on social channels.

As reported by Microsoft, the Xbox showcase will be back again in the summer. This time the chosen date is June 12, 2022, at 19:00 Italian time. The show, as revealed by the blog, will focus on Microsoft games but not only: exactly as happened last year, following the entry of Zenimax inside the Redmond house, the space will also be shared with Bethesda and not could be less, considering the hype surrounding Starfield, the first unpublished IP in over twenty years of activity by the development team that gave birth to The Elder Scrolls series.

It's time. The Xbox & Bethesda Game Showcase will stream globally in 30 languages ​​on June 12th at 10am PT. Save the date & please join us for a showcase of games from Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and our partners around the world. ‍♂️ #XboxBethesda

Xbox and Bethesda will hold a games showcase on June 12th

Although there's no E3 this year, you can still expect a ton of gaming news to emerge in the coming weeks. Microsoft has announced an Xbox and Bethesda games showcase, which will take place on June 12th (yes, that's a Sunday) at 1PM ET.

The event will include information on games from Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda and some of Microsoft's partners. It sounds as if it'll be pretty comprehensive, with the promise of details on 'everything you need to know about the diverse lineup of games coming soon to the Xbox ecosystem.' That includes projects on the way to Game Pass for both Xbox and PC.

As for what to expect, it's a safe bet that we'll get a fresh look at Starfield. I'm hoping to hear more about Redfall, a vampire shooter Bethesda showed off last summer and hasn't said a whole lot about since. There will surely be trailers and teasers for previously unannounced games too.

The event will be broadcast in 30 languages (including American Sign Language) on platforms including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok. 

In terms of other gaming events, Summer Game Fest will return this year. THQ Nordic has also set a showcase for August 12th.
