Xbox says it has some ‘GoldenEye type’ reveals planned before its summer showcase
But Phil Spencer suggests Microsoft is saving major announcements for June’s event
Microsoft’s head of gaming has said the company has some “GoldenEye type” reveals planned over the coming months ahead of a major product showcase in June.
Last month, the platform holder held the first Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct digital event, where it announced Minecraft Legends and Redfall release dates, showed off Forza Motorsport, and surprise announced and released Tango Gameworks’ Hi-Fi Rush.
At the end of the event, it also confirmed plans to host a product showcase in Los Angeles in June.

During a recent Xbox On interview, Spencer was asked if there are any other big reveals planned before this summer’s showcase.
“So, a lot of our focus right now is on the showcase in June, but there’s some news that’s coming out,” he replied.
“Like, you know, like we did the GoldenEye [announcement], I’m thinking like, you know, GoldenEye type announces.”
Following months of speculation, Microsoft officially announced a modern port of GoldenEye 007 for Xbox Game Pass in late January.
“So, there’ll be games available in different services,” Spencer continued. “Obviously, the Game Pass portfolio continues to grow, but most of our focus as a team is really on getting ready for the showcase.
“We’ve got Redfall coming, we’ve got Minecraft Legends coming, we’ve got Starfield coming, we’ve got Forza coming. So, I love the fact that the portfolio’s here and people are starting to play, and starting off the year with Hi-Fi Rush was so fantastic.”
Last year, Bethesda delayed Starfield’s release from November 2022 to “the first half of 2023”. The game was absent from the Developer_Direct presentation as Microsoft said it was planning to hold a standalone event at a later date in order to “dedicate the proper amount of time for a deep dive” into the sci-fi RPG.
