The Xbox Games Showcase begins at 9 a.m. PT| Noon ET | 5 p.m. BST today (July 23).
It's time to watch the Xbox Games Showcase live stream to see how the company responds to the epic PS5 showcase in June, and to see what games the Xbox Series X will get to battle Sony's next-gen console.
While we already know Halo Infinite will be a marquee game at the Xbox Games Showcase, the company needs more than just its latest version of its flagship shooter. Will Microsoft respond with titles as surprising as Spider-Man: Miles Morales and as tantalizing as Horizon: Forbidden West?

For starters, we're looking for Microsoft to sate fans desires for Fable 4. Yes, it's been rumored about for years, but so was Skate 4, and that's happening. We've heard varying rumors about Fable 4 arriving tomorrow, so we're trying to stay positive.
Other big tames we're looking out for at the Xbox Games Showcase live stream include the next Forza racing title, and something new from Gears of War.
Also, expect to see more of a pair of known Xbox Series X exclusives: Hellblade 2 and Everwild, plus more potential footage from announced third-party games such as Madden 21 and Marvel's Avengers.
