The Xbox Games Showcase is happening today! With the Summer Game Fest 2023 presentation now behind us, all eyes are on Microsoft to deliver big. You'll be able to tune into the Xbox Games Showcase later today, June 11, starting at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST / 7PM CET. And don't forget to stick around for the Starfield Direct, which is set to air straight after for an amazing double-bill.
We're covering the Xbox Games Showcase live
Naturally, Starfield is one of the most anticipated upcoming Xbox Series X games that we're eager to see more of, but that isn't all we expect to see at the Xbox Games Showcase. Microsoft has set aside 60 minutes to show new Xbox Series X games, so expect there to be plenty of reveals and announcements.
Below you'll find everything you need to know about the Xbox Games Showcase 2023, including times, dates, confirmed games, and our own predictions on what we expect to see at the big keynote presentation.
What is the Xbox Games Showcase 2023?
The Xbox Games Showcase 2023 is this year's iteration of Microsoft's annual summer keynote presentation, and quite the highlight of the E3 2023 schedule. This will be its third year in this current form, which is essentially a glorious mashup of exciting Bethesda and Xbox Game Studio announcements and updates, interspersed with third-party and indie titles.
When is the Xbox Games Showcase?

What is the Xbox Games Showcase Extended 2023?
The Xbox Games Showcase Extended is a follow-up stream happening on June 13 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST / 7PM CET. Like in previous years, this secondary stream will feature more in-depth interviews with the developers following the news from the main Xbox Games Showcase on June 11. It will also include "game updates from our partners", says Microsoft.
What's happening with Starfield?
While you might expect Starfield to be front and center for the Xbox Games Showcase, it's so huge that Microsoft is giving it its own standalone presentation slot directly after the Games Showcase. The Starfield Direct, as it's called, will start immediately after the Xbox Games Showcase finishes, and can be viewed at the same YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook links as above.

What could we see at the Xbox Games Showcase?
What's interesting about the Xbox Games Showcase teasers is that Microsoft has been very clear that this year's showcase will feature both new games (as you'd hope) and "updates on major titles". Now, this is particularly interesting because there are many Xbox exclusives that we've not heard about in several years.
For example, it's gone very quiet on the likes of Rare's Everwild, and we've not even heard about Avowed from Obsidian Entertainment, The Outer Worlds 2, the reboot that is the New Perfect Dark, or Avalanche's new IP Contraband since they were first announced back in 2020.
With Starfield out in September and Redfall now in the rear-view, we could also get a glimpse of some upcoming Bethesda games - although that may be a little optimistic.
