Update: Xbox's Aaron Greenberg has shared a brief message on social media, mentioning how Xbox has "a lot planned" for the year ahead. Apparently, fans won't have to wait long to find out what's next!
"We have a lot planned to show and share about an incredibly exciting year ahead for 2023. Appreciate folks are eager to learn and see more. Timing is always key, but don’t worry you will not have to wait too long for what’s next from us."
The Game Awards 2022 has just wrapped up, and while we saw plenty of interesting Xbox reveals throughout the night, none of them were first-party releases from Xbox Game Studios. The likes of Starfield, Redfall, Forza Motorsport, Avowed and Hellblade 2 didn't get a chance to shine whatsoever.
As you can imagine, there's plenty of disgruntlement doing the rounds right now:
Fortunately, as highlighted in our Game Awards 2022 roundup, we did at least get some cool announcements for the likes of Hades 2, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, Armored Core VI, Diablo IV, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and many others, so it's still worth going back and checking the list if you didn't get to watch the show.
Hopefully we won't have to wait too long until we get our next glimpse of Forza, Starfield and Redfall (which are all scheduled to release in 2023), but evidently this wasn't the night Microsoft wanted to show them off.
