Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 – Everything We Expect to See

The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase is coming up, and here is what we expect to see in one of the biggest gaming events of the Summer.

While the cancelation of the digital E3 event for 2022 may have put a spanner in some plans, the events are still coming in hot this Summer!

We’ve heard that there will be an Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in June, and now PlayStation is holding their State of Play a few weeks before Xbox’s showcase.

However, we expect that Xbox & Bethesda will go big with this event, considering they’ll need to get players hyped for the Holiday season. And here is what we expect to see in the upcoming Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.

Games We Expect to See in Xbox & Bethesda Showcase 2022

There are plenty of games we hope to see in the showcase, but not all will be shown. Here’s the list of what we expect to be shown at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase for 2022.

This list is in alphabetical order, and not in order of how we expect the show to go.

Atomic Heart – Release Date Reveal

Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022 Atomic Heart

Atomic Heart, the strange and enticing FPS from the studio Mundfish, is releasing in 2022. We even got a release window trailer for the game recently.

But it makes sense that Atomic Heart would see a full release date trailer in the upcoming showcase. It received a trailer during the Xbox & Bethesda 2021 showcase, so it’ll likely appear here.

While there’s not an exact month or date in 2022 that Atomic Heart is set to release, the game is expected in Q4 2022.

Avowed – Gameplay Reveal

Obsidian Entertainment

Avowed, the new IP from Obsidian Entertainment, was announced two years ago and we have yet to see any gameplay.

That’s why we expect to see some gameplay within the upcoming showcase. If not, it would certainly be a missed opportunity.

While we believe that Avowed won’t see a release until 2023/2024, it would be nice to see what Obsidian’s RPG looks like in terms of gameplay.

Forza Motorsport 8 – Gameplay Reveal

While Forza Motorsport 8, simply titled Forza Motorsport, hasn’t been seen since Summer 2020, we expect Xbox to bring it back to the upcoming showcase.

The success of Forza Horizon 5 has made Forza’s popularity even bigger than before, so it would be no surprise to see Xbox want to capitalize further on its success.

A gameplay reveal may be more than what we actually see, but we certainly think Forza will have a spot in the showcase one way or another!

Gears of War Collection – Announcement

Gears of War Collection Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022

There have been rumors of a Gears of War Collection, similar to the Halo Master Chief Collection, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it announced here.

While The Coalition likely has their hands full with something, Xbox may have got some outside help to remaster the Gears of War games for the latest generation of consoles.

If the Gears of War Collection is real, it wouldn’t be shocking to see it here.

Xbox has been making a big fuss about its indie development program in recent years, so expect to see a showcase of multiple indie games in one long trailer.

They usually offer a mix of smaller indie games within a trailer, with new games and previously announced titles being shown off. And with Xbox Game Pass, we imagine that many of these will be arriving on the service.

Redfall – Gameplay Reveal


Despite Redfall and Starfield seeing a delay into 2023, we expect Redfall will have some gameplay revealed, even if it is only a slither.

The upcoming game is in development by Arkane Studios. And given their track record, we can expect something of high quality.

Of course, this may be unlikely due to the delay. But Xbox is due to show more gameplay for their announced projects, and Redfall should be one of them.

Slime Rancher 2 – Gameplay Reveal

Another gameplay reveal, but for a smaller title. Slime Rancher 2, despite being an indie game, will likely see its own gameplay reveal segment during the showcase.

The much-awaited sequel to Slime Rancher saw its own announcement during the showcase last year. And given the fact that it has a 2022 release window, it would be a surprise if we didn’t hear more about Slime Rancher 2 in June.

Starfield Gameplay Reveal

Starfield & Redfall Release Dates Delayed Until 2023

Starfield. It’s a shame we couldn’t have it on our consoles this year. But we hope that they will include it in the upcoming showcase.

Starfield is arguably one of the most hyped games within the next year. This is due to Bethesda’s incredible track record, and the fact it’s their first new IP in over two decades.

It’s very, very unlikely that we won’t see Starfield gameplay during the June showcase.

And there we have it, what we expect to see from the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase in June 2022. However, there may be more announcements to come!

We may even get an announcement or reveal of Xbox’s Cloud Gaming Device that Microsoft recently confirmed.

And while you’re here, would you buy a new Xbox Series console? A tech giant has claimed that a PS5 Pro and upgraded Xbox Series X could launch in 2023/2024.
