With E3 cancelling its physical show once again, rumours have emerged that Xbox is planning its own video presentation once more. Coming from GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb (via VGC), he claimed that we could see this Xbox show sometime in June, though he doesn’t rule out a possible May or September showcase.
Elaborating on this, Grubb stated:
"I’ll probably have more to say on this soon, but it’s in June, not May. Well, they might do something in May or September, I don’t know, but I know that they’re planning for an E3-style show in June. They’re talking to partners to get big games in there. That is ongoing right now and it’s March, so it’s not like they can change that train or turn that big ship around.”
Report: Xbox Will Host E3-Style Showcase This June
Microsoft has previously held several online presentations, so a new Xbox showcase wouldn't be surprising. Last year at E3, we saw the Xbox & Bethesda showcase run for around 90 minutes, which crucially confirmed a Starfield release date and Xbox console-exclusivity.
With E3 traditionally taking place annually in June, we can likely expect further news in the coming weeks from Microsoft, alongside other publishers. For now, we've got a full rundown of gaming events in 2022, and we'll keep you informed with further developments.
