Anticipation Builds for Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct

Rumors hint at a 90-minute Xbox Games Showcase and a 30-minute Starfield Direct on June 11th.

Microsoft is stealing the limelight with its upcoming Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct as the gaming industry gears up for a jam-packed June. The events, scheduled for June 11th, are expected to offer a comprehensive look at the company’s future first-party lineup and its most anticipated exclusive release of the year.

A recent leak on Twitter by user @_h0x0d_ suggests that the showcase and Direct will run from 10 AM to 12 PM PT on June 11th. While this information should be taken with a grain of salt, Tom Warren of The Verge also said, “The Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct is going to be around 2 hours total.” He speculates that the leading showcase will last 90 minutes, with Starfield Direct taking up the remaining 30 minutes.

This rumored runtime for the Xbox Games Showcase aligns with last year’s event, which clocked in at approximately 95 minutes. Given Bethesda Game Studios’ eagerness to present Starfield in-depth, a 30-minute window seems reasonable.

Fans are eager to learn more about Microsoft’s first-party offerings and to get an extended look at the highly anticipated Starfield. The space-faring RPG is set to launch on September 6th for Xbox Series X/S and PC, with day-one availability on Game Pass.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
