What to expect

The big draw of the Developer Direct will be a first look at Indiana Jones. Wolfenstein studio MachineGames is developing this new adventure starring everyone’s favorite Nazi-punching archeologist and Microsoft has confirmed over “10 minutes of game and developer insights” will be seen during the stream.

A deep dive into Obsidian’s upcoming first-person fantasy game Avowed will also be seen, Oxide Games will show off its 4X strategy game Ara: History Untold, and Ninja Theory’s Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will also be in the spotlight. The release date for Hellblade 2 has reportedly been leaked ahead of the Developer_Direct, so we might get some official confirmation from Microsoft on when the game is expected to launch.

Once the event is over, you can stick around for a dedicated presentation on the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online. If you’re interested in seeing what’s in store for Diablo 4, it’ll have its own live stream before the Developer_Direct begins, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET.
