Microsoft's big Xbox Series X games showcase is coming up this Thursday, July 23, and it's expected to feature Halo Infinite and some of Microsoft's other first-party titles. The show kicks off at 8 AM PT with a pre-show led by games media veteran Geoff Keighley.

Unlike some pre-shows that don't have much news, this one will be different, according to Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg. "Trust me you don't want to miss this pre-show," Greenberg said on Twitter. "We have been working with and our partners on some exciting reveals!"

Greenberg did not offer any further teases about what to expect. GameSpot will be reporting for the entirety of the event, so keep checking back with us for the latest.

Greenberg has also clarified that the July 23 event will focus exclusively on games. The executive said he's seen some "wild expectations" for what people think Microsoft will show.

"No business, devices, or similar news, just games. A whole show about hour-long focused on games. Hope you enjoy it!" he said.

Greenberg is likely referring to the long-running rumors that Microsoft is working on an all-digital next-generation Xbox. If Microsoft is, it won't be announced until a later date. More recently, rumors sparked that Microsoft is going to further integrate Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass, but as Greenberg says, this July 23 event will focus only on games, not the business models surrounding them.

What we do know about the July 23 event is that Microsoft will use it to finally show more of Halo Infinite. The presentation will include a reveal of the campaign mode, with multiplayer saved for a later date.
