Xbox Games Showcase – our round-up of all the Fable, Halo Infinite, and PC news



Microsoft is finally ready to showcase its line-up of Xbox Series X titles, and that means a whole lot of news for PC fans, too – after all, these days the Xbox brand doesn’t really care whether you’re playing on a console or a Windows PC. We will get the first look at campaign gameplay ahead of the Halo Infinite release date later this year, but Microsoft promises plenty more in store as part of today’s showcase.

We’re hoping for a bit more on Microsoft Flight Simulator and Age of Empires 4, but there’s plenty more in the pipe from Xbox Game Studios. We’re likely to see more from Double Fine’s Psychonauts 2, Ninja Theory’s Hellblade 2, and Rare’s Battletoads and Everwild. Plus, there are the long-rumoured titles, like the new Fable game Playground Games is supposed to be working on, or the unnamed title from The Initiative.

It’s a lot to keep track of, so we’ll be rounding up all the announcements here. You can keep refreshing this page for live updates as they happen, and by the end of it all you’ll find a complete round-up of all the major news as it goes live.

You can also watch the broadcast in full here.
