It's that time again, with Xbox showing off what they've got in the pipeline.

That time has come again for game studios to showcase their biggest games and projects for the rest of the year. The 2024 Xbox Games Showcase is one of the biggest of these events, and this year will be no exception. With the Black Ops 6 Direct following, some exciting reveals will surely happen.

This is the first year that Microsoft has owned Activision Blizzard since its acquisition in 2023. This might create a certain theme for this showcase with older Activision titles being added to Game Pass, but tensions could also be high. With no acknowledgment at the Summer Game Fest about Microsoft’s recent layoffs, the live chats will likely have some discourse among players.

How to Watch the 2024 Xbox Games Showcase

You can watch the Xbox Games Showcase at 1 pm EST on June 9 on any official Xbox, Bethesda or Activision channels. That includes YouTube, Twitch or Facebook, but you can also check it out on LinkedIn. There will even be a version with an audio description on Xbox’s ASL channel for those with limited or no hearing.
