How to watch Microsoft’s 2024 Xbox and Call of Duty showcase

Microsoft is back with another Xbox Games Showcase this year, and this time around, there’s a Call of Duty direct straight after the main show. This is Microsoft’s first Xbox Games Showcase to feature games from across Activision, Blizzard, Bethesda, and Xbox Game Studios, as well as third-party titles.

I think this is going to be a big Xbox showcase, with a runtime that could approach the two-hour mark. Get ready for new game reveals, lots of release dates, and some potential surprises.

The Xbox Games Showcase starts on Sunday, June 9th, at 1PM ET / 10AM PT / 6PM UK.

Microsoft is streaming its big Xbox showcase live on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook. You can also watch the showcase from the video embedded at the top of this article.

I would expect to see more than 15 first-party Xbox games at this showcase. Microsoft has a busy fall ahead for Xbox, with Bethesda currently targeting September for its Starfield Shattered Space expansion, and Age of Mythology: Retold is tracking for an early September release, too.

I’m also expecting Activision to announce it’s launching Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 on October 25th, and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024 should follow in November. Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is also expected to debut in December, according to sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans.

Among all of these big game releases, there are new seasons for Overwatch 2, Call of Duty, and Diablo IV. I’d expect we’ll also hear about Diablo IV’s Vessel of Hatred expansion, which is currently tracking for an early October release. World of Warcraft’s The War Within DLC is also due in late August, I understand.

Microsoft has also been considering putting Towerborne into an early access program later this year, and there’s still the question of when Avowed will launch. I heard a few months ago that Avowed was targeting a November release, so I’m hoping we’ll hear more about that during the Xbox showcase. We’re also still waiting to see if a long-rumored Gears of War collection will ever be confirmed.

Beyond what’s planned for 2024, I’m fully expecting Microsoft to announce two new games — the next installments for Doom and Gears of War. These will be the big announcements of the show, but there could be a bunch of third-party games, too.
