With less than three weeks until The Game Awards, gamers of all stripes are starting to imagine the announcements that could be made during the ceremony. Last year, the Xbox community was greatly disappointed by the absence of the brand while they were desperately waiting for release dates due to a release schedule that was far too vague for 2023.
Xbox should be present at the Game Awards
On Rand’s show Thor 19, Jez Corden, the well-informed journalist from Windows Central, was asked if Xbox would be present at the Game Awards this time. He responded in the affirmative, without claiming to know whether Microsoft will show what it takes to galvanize the crowds.
Yes, I pretty much know the Xbox is there […] Yes it’s a leak, it’s a leak […]. I’m adding disclaimers because the last time I teased something for a trade show, everyone was mad at me. They said I wasn’t good enough, you know BlizzCon wasn’t good enough and everyone was mad at me, so I’m not teasing anything, I’m not telling you if it’s going to be good or not , Xbox will be at the show. […] This is what I’m getting at, don’t expect it to be good.
Last year, players were waiting for information on Minecraft Legends, Redfall, Forza Motorsport and Starfield. The absence of Microsoft had sparked a rumble, a reaction to which the Redmond firm immediately reacted to try to reassure players by promising new information very soon.
It was finally necessary to wait until the end of January to discover the holding of the very first edition of the [Xbox Developer Direct]an event during which Xbox games were talked about and where Hi-Fi RUSH was unveiled and made available immediately.
2024 already promises to be busy for Xbox, as evidenced by the release of Towerborne, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024, Avowed, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, but also unannounced games. Perhaps we will be entitled to new information on these titles, or simply new announcements as was the case with Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 in 2019 and Perfect Dark in 2020? Response on the night of December 7 to 8!
