Microsoft and Bethesda have announced that their upcoming Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct event will be a total of 45 minutes. The event is set to take place on January 25 at 12pm PT, providing fans with the state of Xbox, PC, and Game Pass for the upcoming months. The Elder Scrolls Online Global Reveal standalone event will start at 12:45 pm PT, but Starfield won't be making an appearance as it has its own showcase. 

During this year's Game Awards in December 2022, Microsoft had very little to show in terms of gaming news or updates. This led many fans to speculate that there would be no big announcements from either company until 2021 was over - but thankfully, they were wrong! With this direct taking place next month, fans can expect a lot of news about what the companies are cooking up behind closed doors. 

Fans should prepare themselves for some exciting news during this direct! It is likely that we will see some new games being revealed as well as updates on existing titles like Halo Infinite and Forza Motorsport 8 which are both expected to launch sometime in 2021 or 2022. Additionally, Microsoft could even announce their plans for backward compatibility on their next-gen consoles or give us an update on Project xCloud streaming service.  

Additionally, both companies might have something special planned for the ever-growing Game Pass subscription service, too - maybe even crossplay between platforms? No matter what happens during these 45 minutes, though, one thing is sure; there’s going to be plenty of content coming up soon enough, so make sure you tune into the live stream when it kicks off in January! 

After months without any major gaming news from either company, it’s safe to say that gamers everywhere are eagerly awaiting what surprises Xbox and Bethesda have prepared for us at this special direct! From new games announcements through updates on existing titles all the way down to additional features added onto services such as Game Pass – there’s bound to be something exciting presented during these 45 minutes, so don’t miss out!
