The first ever Xbox Developer Direct is now officially in the books, and regardless of what you might have thought of the actual content of the event, it seems the majority of Xbox fans have been very pleased with the new show format.
Social media was flooded with comments along these lines during the livestream yesterday, which promoted VP of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg to thank everyone for their "kind notes".
If you didn't get a chance to watch it, we were treated to 43 minutes of deep dives for Redfall, Forza Motorsport, Minecraft Legends, The Elder Scrolls Online and a surprise from Tango Gameworks in Hi-Fi Rush. Unlike typical Xbox events, there were no hosts for this one, with the individual studios leading the show instead.
It sounds like we'll be seeing many more Xbox Developer Direct events in the future, then, and we're all for it! Next up though, we've got a Starfield showcase in the works from Bethesda, followed by Xbox's summer showcase for 2023.
