While the US version announcement of Developer_Direct had limited information about the upcoming showcase, it seems the German version had a little bit of important detail that slipped out.
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that the Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct showcase was happening on January 25, 2023. It shared the basic information the fans would need, like the schedule, the games involved, and which livestream platforms to watch. However, it left out some of the juicier information they wanted to hear like what content will be announced, the release dates of the games mentioned will finally be revealed, and other crucial info. The company was really strict not to give away anything.
Except the German branch kind of shared/slipped out one important detail.
Most of the context in the announcement from Xbox Wire Germany was similar to the US version except for one particular addition. At the part where it describes what to expect on the Developer_Direct showcase, it added the words “release dates” in it for four titles, which are The Elden Scrolls Online, Forza Motorsport, Minecraft Legends, and Redfall. Note that these were only machine-translated by Google Translate, which could be buggy sometimes as it is not a perfect translator.
To specifically translate the words release dates is too clear though. It could be translating it correctly to give fans some hope of what to expect later this month. It is also obvious that release dates might get announced during the showcase since it is a major event for Xbox.
Developer_Direct will go live on January 25, 2023, at 12 PM PT/3 PM ET.
