Although we’re hot on the heels of this morning’s Xbox and Bethesda showcase which brought us glimpses at Starfield, Forza Horizon 5, and Halo Infinite, we’ve received news that Xbox is hosting another game showcase later this week.
Confirmed by Parris Lilly, who’ll serve as host for the event, he promises “conversations with developers from studios like Double Fine, Obsidian, Ninja Theory, Rare, and dev partners from around the world”.

It’d serve as a great opportunity for Xbox to deliver updates for games like Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga, Everwild, and Avowed which might be still too far away for meaningful vertical slices like we saw this morning.
The event will air in the same timeslot as this morning’s conference, meaning you can expect to see it on Friday, June 18 at:
- AEST (Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane/Canberra) – 3:00am
- ACST (Adelaide/Darwin) – 2:30am
- AWST (Perth) – 1:00am
We’ll have all of the updates as they happen.
