Microsoft’s annual Xbox Games Showcase last Sunday delivered plenty of announcements and reveals, ranging from new games to awaited game release dates and new hardware. The event was streamed on official Xbox, Activision, and Bethesda channels across YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch.

Some of the biggest game announcements include Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, the next entry in the military shooter franchise, scheduled for release on October 25. Gears of War: E-Day was also announced, a prequel to the franchise set fourteen years before the events of the original game. However, a release date wasn’t confirmed.

Doom: The Dark Ages is a medieval-era prequel to Doom and is scheduled for release in 2025, alongside a long-awaited new entry in the Fable franchise. MachineGames’ action-adventure title Indiana Jones and The Great Circle, set between the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Last Crusade, was also revealed and is set for release sometime this year.

Additional game teases included Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024 (launching in November), World of Warcraft: The War Within (August 2024), Avowed (2024), Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater (no official date), Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred (October 2024), Starfield: Shattered Space (2024), Atomfall (2025), State of Decay 3 (no official date), and more.

Notably, many of these titles will be available to play on launch day with Xbox Game Pass without any additional cost to subscribers.

Microsoft’s event also included some hardware announcements. The company unveiled a disc-less Xbox Series X in white, a Special Edition 2TB “Galaxy Black” version of Xbox Series X, and a white 1TB Xbox Series S.

While a potential Xbox handheld device was rumored online, there was no official announcement.

Users took to Reddit to express excitement about the announced games, with some even calling the event the best in years. Others, however, complained about the lack of specific release dates for many of the games.
