Xbox Games Showcase 2024 & [REDACTED] Direct

The 2024 Xbox Games Showcase Followed by [REDACTED] Direct Airs 9 June.

The Xbox Games Showcase will be livestreamed on Sunday, 9 June 2024, starting at 19:00 SAST.

Like our double-feature last year with Starfield Direct, immediately following the Showcase we’ll be airing a special deep-dive into the next installment of a beloved franchise. We can’t say much, so for now we’ll call it the Xbox Games Showcase followed by [REDACTED] Direct.

This will also be the first Showcase to include games from the recently acquired portfolio of studios across Activision, and Blizzard, and also Bethesda and the Xbox Game Studios.

Catch the Showcase and the Direct immediately after it on YouTube, Twitch, or Facebook:

The [REDACTED] Direct, “a special deep-dive into the next installment of a beloved franchise”, is almost certainly going to be about the next Call of Duty game.

The not quite hidden logo in the bottom right-hand corner is a perfect match for the Activision logo mark. And the stylised three dog heads on a shield over an image of the US Capitol on a dollar bill fits the CoD aesthetic.

Games Radar suggests that the logo also supports an earlier rumour that Call of Duty 2024 would be another Black Ops game.

On top of that, previous rumors had suggested that Call of Duty 2024 would be another Black Ops game, and the orange and black color scheme of this teaser matches the aesthetics of that subseries.

Tom Warren at The Verge comes right out and confirms it, based on “sources familiar with the company’s plans”.

ETA: Might also be an opportunity for them to start putting some of the back catalogue onto Game Pass in the lead up to the 2024 CoD launch.
