Microsoft’s Xbox Games Showcase 2023 Promises Big News For Xbox Fans
Microsoft is gearing up for its annual Xbox Games Showcase event on June 11 where it will share news on upcoming Xbox games from Xbox Game Studios and third-party developers. This showcase has served as a major source of hype and announcements for Xbox fans in recent years, and 2023 looks to be no different.
According to Xbox, this year’s showcase will feature “new game reveals and updates on major Xbox titles.” That description suggests we could get significant updates on some of Xbox’s biggest upcoming games that have been quiet for a while, including Fable, Avowed, Perfect Dark, Everwild and more.
It is also possible we could see the first look at new IP in development at Xbox’s studios like The Initiative, Compulsion Games and more. However, Xbox is wisely keeping expectations in check by reminding fans that this will be a curated showcase, not a blowout type of event.
Following the main showcase on June 11, Xbox will host the Xbox Games Showcase Extended on June 13 to dive deeper into announcements with developer interviews and game updates. This second event gives individual studios time to highlight their games without disrupting the overall showcase.
Overall, Xbox fans have good reason to be excited heading into this year’s showcase. While it’s unlikely we’ll see every major upcoming Xbox game, the opportunity for significant updates on key projects is certainly there. Xbox leadership has been adamant about building a robust portfolio of exclusive games, so fans hope to finally get a glimpse of where that vision is heading in 2023 and beyond.
The Xbox Games Showcase is a chance for Microsoft to keep the momentum going following the success of titles like Forza Horizon 5, Sea of Thieves and Halo Infinite. So buckle up, Xbox fans, because June 11 is shaping up to be a big day for those eagerly awaiting news on the next generation of Xbox hits.

Xbox and PC enthusiasts can catch all the action by tuning in to Xbox’s official YouTube channel, Facebook channel, or the Xbox Twitch. Fans can choose their preferred platform from the following links:

While we wait for more information, speculation and predictions have already begun, with many hoping for a glimpse of the long-awaited Indiana Jones game and other exciting surprises.
Beware of Fake PlayStation and Xbox Showcase List Leaks: A Cautionary Tale for E3 Fans
I want to warn readers about fake leaked lists of PlayStation and Xbox showcases that have been circulating online. It’s E3 season, and as expected, there are individuals who are taking advantage of the hype and excitement by creating fabricated lists of supposed announcements. Although Sony recently announced its much-anticipated PlayStation Showcase, fans should be wary of these leaks, which are likely created to generate clicks and clout.
Some examples of these fake leaked lists have been shared on social media platforms, with each list attempting to appear legitimate by using different tactics. Some use a “Confidential” label to seem more valid, while others add watermarks or logos to make it appear like real insider information. However, none of these sources appear to be reputable or have a track record of providing accurate leaks.
While there was one instance in 2018 when a Nintendo list leaked turned out to be correct, it’s highly unlikely that companies like PlayStation and Xbox would write up lists detailing every major announcement and secret from their showcases beforehand. It’s important to take these leaked lists with a grain of salt and not fall for the fake hype. The showcases aren’t far off, and we’ll soon know the truth. So, let’s wait for the official announcements and not get swayed by the fake leaks.
Rumors Mount Of Potential Persona 3 Remake Reveal At Xbox Showcase Event
According to leaks from reliable sources, Atlus may announce the Persona 3 remake at Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox Showcase event on June 11. This would mark the first time a core Persona title was announced and likely also released on Xbox platforms.
Persona, long a PlayStation and Nintendo franchise, has seen success on Xbox with Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Strikers. But a core Persona game, which Persona 3 would qualify as, coming first to Xbox could shake up the usual console exclusivity, signaling a strategic shift for Atlus.
Insider Im A Hero Too claims that “anyone interested in Persona” should watch the Xbox Showcase, hinting at an “Evoke-itive” announcement referring to the Evokers from Persona 3. While Atlus has not confirmed a Persona 3 remake, rumblings of one in development have percolated for years.
Interestingly, Sony has its own showcase just weeks prior on May 24, fueling speculation that Atlus may be bypassing PlayStation’s event in favor of Microsoft’s for the Persona 3 reveal. With Spider-Man 2 all but confirmed for Sony’s event, Persona 3’s absence would be keenly felt.
For now, rumors persist but Atlus has stayed silent. Yet Persona fans remain hopeful that June 11 could finally provide confirmation of a long awaited Persona 3 remake, and potentially usher in a new era of Persona games appearing on Xbox as well as PlayStation.
Xbox Showcase Leak: Fans Excited About Scalebound or Just Another Hoax?
I want to highlight a supposed Xbox Showcase ‘leak’ that has been making rounds on the internet and causing a buzz among fans about the revival of Scalebound. While E3 2023 may have been canceled, gamers can look forward to several events in the coming months that are E3-equivalents, including Xbox’s showcase on June 11, PlayStation’s showcase on May 24, and a Ubisoft Forward event on June 12.
However, with these events come a slew of leaks that often turn out to be fake. One such leak claims to reveal the complete lineup for the Xbox Showcase, including Scalebound, which has caused excitement among fans. But fans should be cautious and take it with a massive grain of salt, as there are several red flags that suggest the leak is completely fake.
For instance, Starfield is having its own event after the Xbox Showcase, and the canceled Scalebound is claimed to be a shadow drop. Forza Motorsport is said to be in development at the wrong studio, and the supposed Halo battle royale “Tatanka” apparently doesn’t even have an official title. All of these details suggest that the leaked lineup is unlikely to be true.
While there’s a slim chance that this leaked lineup could be accurate, it’s more probable that it’s fake. Xbox fans should wait for the Xbox Showcase on June 11 to see what’s in store and not get swayed by the fake hype.
