As much as many followers are worried, Xbox will certainly be beginning E3 week this year, however the firm has actually simply verified that it will not in fact get on the E3 program flooring.

“We can’t wait to host our Xbox Games Showcase on June 11 and will share more details later,” an Xbox speaker informs IGN (opens up in brand-new tab). “We also look forward to co-streaming our event as part of E3 Digital and will not be on the E3 showfloor.”

Earlier today, Microsoft verified the June 11 date for the Xbox Games Showcase, with both it as well as the June Starfield Direct comfortably timed to the beginning of the authorities E3 2023 schedule. That increased some brows regarding just how straight Xbox was taking part in the program, provided rumors that the Big Three console makers were skipping E3 this year. Nintendo was the first to make it official, as well as PlayStation hasn’t gone to the program for several years, making its most likely lack unsurprising.

It’s worth keeping in mind, naturally, that Xbox really did not make a look at the last physical E3 program, kept in 2019, either. Skipping once more right here in 2023 could simply belong to a longer-term approach. But we’re currently simply a couple of months out of E3, as well as while occasion coordinators urge there’s lots to be thrilled around, we still do not have any type of heavyweights on the exhibitor checklist. That is aside from Ubisoft (opens up in brand-new tab), though that publisher hasn’t sounded too certain of its appearance.

Of program, unless you’re in fact mosting likely to E3, this possibly will not matter much to you. There’s still most likely to be exact same week loaded with interview that you’re made use of to seeing from house. Just do not anticipate to be seeing any type of huge hands-on sneak peeks on the most recent Xbox games appearing of the occasion.

Here are all the upcoming Xbox Series X games you might or might not be seeing even more of at E3.
