There are lots of rumors around the plans Microsoft has for PC, Xbox Series X|S and other platforms in 2024, but we won’t have to wait long for some actual insight on the matter as the next edition of the Xbox Developer Direct showcase has been announced for this month. Instead of relying on rumors and hearsay, we’ll get to see first-hand what Microsoft’s studios have been cooking and what awaits players this year.

From the announcement artwork we’re already able to tell that Oxide Games’ turn-based strategy game Ara: History Untold will appear during the show, while it looks like we’re finally getting some news around MachineGames’ Indiana Jones title, which is very exciting. Ninja Theory will bring more information on the continuation of Senua’s Saga with Hellblade 2 and the RPG experts at Obsidian Entertainment will present us with details on Avowed.

Here’s everything you need to know to catch the Xbox Developer Direct in January 2024 live.
