Microsoft is starting video game conferences in 2023. This Wednesday, January 25, the company will announce the news about the games planned for this year.
After a very bleak 2022 on the side of the catalog of exclusive games, Microsoft is making good decisions. 2023 is clearly going to be a year of sustainable communication and it starts this Wednesday, January 25th with the first conference. The Redmond-based company has invented a new broadcast format called Developer_Direct to communicate regularly with Xbox users. Hoping she pumped up her game enough to appease the fans.
How do I subscribe to the Microsoft Developer_Direct conference?
To participate in Developer_Direct, you will need to book the first part of the evening. But this time it won’t be too early or too late: the event will start at 9pm French time.
- When ? Wednesday, June 25 at 21:00 French time;
- Where ? Here on Twitch Xbox or YouTube;
- Which ? A Developer_Direct conference featuring select games coming soon to Xbox, PC, and Xbox Game Pass.
We already know the program
In 2023, Microsoft wants to be as transparent as possible in order to avoid communication errors. Therefore, we already know the planned Major program.
So we will see:
- The Elder Scrolls Online: The future of the MMORPG will be discussed in detail, in particular with the presentation of the regions that will soon be open to players. At the end of Developer_Direct there will even be a broadcast dedicated to the game.
- Forza Motorsport: Undoubtedly the most important part of this conference. Turn 10 Studios will impress with gameplay images of a racing game that is likely to be a tech showcase for the Xbox Series X (the most powerful console on the market).
- Minecraft Legends: This new adaptation of the Minecraft universe will be an action strategy game. Today we will get acquainted with the competitive modes.
- Redfall: Developed by Arkane Austin, this first-person shooter is set to be the first major Xbox catalog exclusive in 2023. He will face bloodthirsty vampires from the picturesque Redfall Island in Massachusetts. A priori, the release date will be official.

In addition to these four major productions, other announcements cannot be ruled out. On the other hand, we may already be dropping Starfield: Bethesda’s ambitious RPG, once expected for late 2022, will be eligible for its own Direct in the coming months. We can understand this lack: it’s exclusivity that Microsoft should bet on in 2023.
- What we will definitely see: beautiful images of Forza Motorsport.
- What we’d like to see: Microsoft wraps up an exclusivity no one expected (example: remake of the first Metal Gear Solid).
- What we’d love to see but never will: Microsoft announces the completion of its acquisition of Activision.
