Whoopsie, Microsoft just announced a state-of-the-art livestream revolving around third-party studios. A title we haven’t heard much about in a while is included.
Just when you think things are calming down for now, at least until the Game Awards in December, Microsoft makes another announcement. On Wednesday, October 25, there will be an Xbox Partner Preview at 7 p.m., a live stream all about the third-party studios.
There won’t be any news about Activision Blizzard, as Microsoft made clear in the first sentence of the announcement. But at least there are some recognizable names, including one we haven’t heard much about in a while.
The stream should offer a colorful mix of indie games, bigger titles from studios like Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Remedy Entertainment or Studio Wildcard and also some new Game Pass titles in the portfolio.
New in-game cutscenes for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, a launch trailer for Alan Wake 2 coming out on Friday, and some glimpses of Dungeons of Hinterberg have already been confirmed. But perhaps more importantly, Microsoft finally wants to show off the first gameplay for Ark: Survival Ascending.
We last heard about the remaster in July, when it was said to be due to a delay due to tweaks to Unreal Engine 5.2. At the time, October was set as the new release period, but this has yet to be confirmed. So it is possible that a specific date will finally be announced.
