For some time now there have been rumors of a possible event that Microsoft may have plans to update its players regarding the status of games that during the 2023 will be released on its consoles and on Game Pass. The previous rumors suggested that this event could have taken place during the month of December, but this was not the case and now the colleagues of Windows Central seem to be convinced that the long-awaited appointment will take place this month, more precisely next January 25th.
The showcase will reportedly be called Xbox Developer_Direct and it could be the first event of a new format that has the precise purpose of bringing regular updates regarding the games in development at Xbox Game Studios. Microsoft, in fact, has proved to be very lacking in terms of communication, entrusting announcements and presentations only to the main events in the sector, without however taking care of its own regular appointment. He has already tried to set up such initiatives in the past, but they have gradually been lost over time.
The January event should be the occasion for take a closer look at some major titles from 2023. Not only Starfield – which indeed could be completely absent – but mainly the new Forza Motorsport, Redfall and Minecraft Legends could be among the protagonists of the appointment. The date indicated – that of January 25 – is not carved in stone, confirms Windows Central, but could vary. However, the newspaper declares itself practically certain of the existence of an imminent event.
The Developer_Direct shouldn’t be announced and run as a high-level event, but could follow the style of Nintendo Direct and smaller PlayStation Showcases; therefore it is not a large-scale appointment, but something designed to speak to fans waiting for more news. At this point we just have to wait for further confirmation from Microsoft.
