Around the Network

Length: Roughly 2 hours, expected split to be about 90 minutes Xbox showcase, 30 minutes Starfield Direct

Trailers: No trailers which are pre-rendered/CG only, all trailers will feature at least some in-engine or in-game footage, either in-engine/in-game only or pre-rendered scenes + in-engine/in-game scenes. Trailers and announcements won't be limited to games planned to release within the next 12 months like last year's Summer Showcase, meaning that we will see games planned to release later than June 2024.

The following is a speculative list of games with decent to strong chances of being shown (in my opinion)

Starfield- Bethesda Game Studios

Forza Motorsport- Turn 10 Studios

Halo Infinite Season 4- 343 Industries

Avowed- Obsidian Entertainment

The Outer Worlds 2- Obsidian Entertainment

Fable- Playground Games

Contraband- Avalanche Studios and Xbox Global Publishing

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2- Ninja Theory

Project Mara- Ninja Theory

Perfect Dark- The Initiative and Crystal Dynamics

Project Belfry/The Wandering Tower- Stoic Studios and Xbox Global Publishing

Age of Empires 4 Xbox port- World's Edge and Relic Entertainment

Age of Mythology: Retold- World's Edge

Ara: History Untold- Oxide Games and Xbox Global Publishing

Project Midnight- Compulsion Games

Take it up with Ryuu, he made those, not me xD

My biggest dream for this showcase would be if the MS bring back all your good IP's back. A new Conker, Banjo and Killer Instinct. However, at the end of the day I accept Gears 6 at least.

Oooof, I was meaning to get around to this but I lost track of time. 

Fable shown

Persona 3 Remake shown (day one gamepass)

Forza Motorsport release dateAvowed gameplayIndiana Jones is shown in some way
SMT V port (day one gamepass)Hellblade 2 gameplay and release datePerfect DarkNo GearsCompulsions new game
State of Decay 3 shownSilksong is MIA stillFree SpaceContraband if forgotten aboutGTA VI is revealed
Hideo Kojima is a no show (as is his game)Another Persona 5 spinoffgamepass sizzle reelUpdates on Halo and Sea of ThievesDragon Age 4
Zenimax Online game shownCyberpunk 2077 Phantom LibertyNo Starfield console announcedSquare Enix is a no showMass Effect

I kind of struggled to come up with stuff tbh. I feel like this showcase should be a blowout on games that they've announced multiple years ago and have gone radio silent on since announcing them (Fable, Perfect Dark, Avowed, State of Decay 3, etc...). 3rd parties will obviously be a part of the showcase, Cyberpunk 2077 was at previous Xbox showcases so we may see the big expansion here. Plus some new stuff may be announced too that MS hasn't revealed (compulsion game) and maybe some nice 3rd party reveals. Kind of threw in Mass Effect and Dragon Age 4 to take up some space as like I said I was running out of things to put. Atlus/Sega could have a big blowout here, I'm hoping the most for Persona 3 Remake though out of all the stuff rumored but won't complain if they show off multiple projects.

This is basically the last chance for Xbox to do notably better this generation than the previous one. Hopefully Starfield and other stuff they show really impresses.
