Microsoft is teasing important Xbox news and announcements to be held at the upcoming The Game Awards 2023.
The software giant is sending out a newsletter to Xbox subscribers, asking them to tune in to The Game Awards 2023 for “the best in gaming”.
Microsoft’s newsletter asks Xbox fans to celebrate the year’s best games and the big winners live at The Game Awards 2023 on December 7 at 4:30 PM PT along with major announcements and more Xbox news they won’t want to miss out on. This suggests that Xbox Game Studios may have a series of game showcases planned for the show. The Game Awards producer and host Geoff Keighley is known for being resourceful when it comes to collaborations with game publishers for world premiere announcements at the event.
One of the announcements may involve the unannounced title that is in development at 343 Industries. Not a whole lot is known about the project at this point, though it is speculated that it may be a brand new campaign set in the Halo universe. The game is said to be developed using Unreal Engine.
Previously, it was revealed during a live Q&A session with The Game Awards producer and host Geoff Keighley that the event security for 2023’s show is being ramped up in order to avoid the unforeseen incident from last year. Keighley mentoned that he didn’t want to discuss such matters publicly because they concern security. That said, he assured that him and his team definitely have plans and are trying to do all they can to ensure the safety of everyone, including himself, everyone watching the show in the audience, as well as people participating in the show.
Keighley appreciated the concern and stated that this matter is something that is at the top of his and his team’s mind, but they also want to put on a great show that celebrates the games of 2023 as well as the community’s love of video games. So, that’s an important thing to keep in mind as well, he added.
