Xbox are having an online event for their first-party games this July, we just didn’t know when. Well, a new report says that the Xbox first-party event is rumoured for July 23rd.
The report comes from VGC, who have backed up an initial report by journalist Jeff Grubb. The outlet say their own sources have backed Jeff’s claims that the event is due to take place on Thursday, July 23rd. As with all unofficial reports, take this one with a pinch of salt until it’s confirmed.
As for what games we expect to see at this Xbox first-party event, it’s hard to say for certain? One game definitely being shown at the event is Halo: Infinite. The sixth main Halo game will be a launch title for the Series X, i.e. their big ticket game. Fans also expect to see some details of the new Forza game, likely to be coming out within this calendar year. Ninja Theory’s Hellblade II and Psychonauts 2 from Double Fine Productions are also expected to be shown.
In addition there are some rumors. One game rumored to be shown is a new Fable game, though how complete that game is remains to be seen. Finally, we have first game from The Initiative, a relatively new (2018) studio. The Initiative’s first project is stil unknown. However, rumors surrounding this title suggest it could be a reboot of Xbox’s Perfect Dark series. It’s also expected that some third-party games with close marketing ties to Microsoft could be revealed as well, but we really won’t know for sure till closer to the event.
The one game I am most looking forward to seeing is Halo: Infinite. I’m a big fan of the Halo games. The story being told in the Halo games and their companion novels is actually amazing.
