Xbox and Bethesda ‘Developer Direct’ showcase confirmed for January, Starfield event is later

It’s about time.

Last year was generally a disappointing period for fans of Xbox and its first-party games. Outside of success stories such as Grounded and Pentiment, Microsoft had few first-party releases that demanded the attention of gamers. This was partly due to the delay of both Redfall and Starfield to 2023. Thankfully, it seems like Xbox is on track to have a better release schedule this year. To that end, Xbox Games Studios is starting things off on the right foot with a new Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct showcase to give fans a better look at what lies ahead — but Starfield news will have to wait.

The Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct stream will take place on January 25 at 3 PM ET. It will be available to view on both the Xbox and Bethesda YouTube and Twitch channels. Xbox is promising fans an “inside look at some of the games coming to Xbox, PC, and Game Pass over the next few months.” The show will be focused on extended gameplay showcases that are presented by the developers.

Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct will not include Starfield

With games like Redfall, Starfield, and Forza Motorsport all having 2023 release dates, we hope that Xbox will have plenty to show here. Microsoft has already confirmed that the showcase will include looks at Forza Motorsport, the PvP multiplayer of Minecraft Legends, and the latest major chapter update to The Elder Scrolls Online. Zenimax Online Studios will also host a separate ‘ESO Chapter Reveal Event’ directly after the Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct.

Fans of Arkane Studios will be pleased to know that the showcase will also provide a new look at the studio’s upcoming vampire shooter, Redfall. Specifically, there will be new details regarding bosses, the open world, and player customization.

It’s important to note that Starfield will be absent from the Developer Direct. However, Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg confirmed that it will receive its own standalone showcase to give players a deep dive into Bethesda Game Studios’ latest RPG.
