The Game Awards came and went with little to no major updates from Microsoft and Xbox. Fans raised their concerns, and Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg reacted to the feedback by assuring people that Xbox has an “incredibly exciting” year to come in 2023.

Why not tease or show these games during The Game Awards? “Timing is always key,” Greenberg said, suggesting Microsoft is holding back announcements for a later, more strategic date. “But don’t worry, you will not have to wait too long for what’s next from us.”

Some people thought Microsoft might announce the release dates for Redfall and Starfield during The Game Awards, or reveal what’s next for Halo Infinite, or any number of other possibilities. The show was still packed with big news–like Death Stranding 2–but Xbox fans didn’t get a whole lot.

The game As Dusk Falls, which was published by Xbox Game Studios, won the award for Games for Impact. It is available on Xbox Game Pass.
