Over 40 demos of upcoming Xbox games confirmed for next week
We know the names of five of the titles right now.
Even though Microsoft has their very own Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, they were still confirmed to participate during yesterday's Summer Game Fest stream. We assumed it would be in a smaller capacity, but they really did deliver.
It turns out they will release no less than +40 demos of upcoming Xbox games that will be playable between June 15 to June 21. It should be pointed out, however, that we are not necessarily talking about demos in a traditional sense. Microsoft explains:
"Think of these as akin to "show floor demos" and not necessarily indicative of the final product. What that means is that you'll get to experience these games early - some way early - which is awesome, but you should also note that these games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release."
The full list of games will be revealed in a few days, although the following five titles has been confirmed in the press release:
