Xbox: A new mystery game from Obsidian could be unveiled on Sunday


The Xbox and Bethesda showcase, scheduled for Sunday 12 June in the Italian prime time, could be the right occasion to take a look at one of the new Obsidian Entertainment projects. The development team, acquired by Microsoft in 2018, could in fact take advantage of the prestigious stage to show the world a new game, after the last appearance dated 2020, when Avowed was unveiled.

The same members of the US development team thought about launching the indiscretion. Hannah Kennedy, concept artist at Obsidian Entertainment, said on Twitter that she is extremely curious to finally be able to share a project she has been working on for two years now. To lend a hand to speculation was added Josh Sawyer, who in the development team holds the role of Game Designer, Writer and Director, who in response to that post added an emoji with joined hands.| ); }

As usual in these cases, we invite you to take all these assumptions with the pliers. Surely during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase Obsidian Entertainment will be present, but we do not yet know if with a new unreleased game or with content aimed at extending the current games in development or already published, such as Avowed and Groundend. We will update you as more information becomes available.

Xbox Announces New 'Extended' Gaming Showcase

Xbox and Bethesda have announced that another 'extended' gaming showcase will now be taking place next week on June 14th. Previously, both publishers revealed that they would be holding the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase this coming Sunday on June 12th to make new announcements tied to forthcoming Xbox games. And while this event will still happen, it seems that Xbox has so much to reveal in the coming week that it will now be holding two presentations. 

Taking place on June 14th at 10:00am PDT/1:00pm EDT, the Xbox Games Showcase Extended will allow fans to 'take deeper looks at the news from the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase and speak with some of your favorite game creators.' This event is said to last for 90-minutes in total and will seemingly be much more relaxed compared to the presentation that is taking place on Sunday. Essentially, if you want to get a deeper look at many of the games that will be highlighted in the first event, this extended showcase will be doing just that. 

For those that don't remember, Xbox actually did this same thing last summer in 2021 to help support its main gaming showcase. The 'extended' event that we saw in 2021 featured a lot more gameplay and a number of interviews with developers working on various titles coming to Xbox and PC in the future. 

With this in mind, it's worth stressing that you shouldn't expect to see any massive reveals or announcements at the Xbox Games Showcase Extended next week. While it will likely be a great event to watch if you're looking to get some more granular details related to upcoming titles, the 'major' showcase that Xbox is holding over the coming week will still take place on Sunday. As such, if you're looking to only learn the biggest pieces of news related to Xbox's future, that's the presentation that you'll want to make sure you watch.
