9 Secret Previews Added To Microsoft Store Ahead of Xbox And Bethesda Games Showcase
Microsoft is apparently trying to keep its game reveals at the forthcoming Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase a secret by adding new listings with game IDs on the Microsoft Store in place of their actual names.
It’s difficult to tell if the names of these games are actually hidden somewhere in the scrambled text and numbers. There are a total of 9 secret previews that have been added to the Microsoft Store, and they can be seen in the tweet below.
I love how Microsoft are trying to keep their new Xbox previews secret. Last previews added:

Previously, a trademark for filed by Microsoft for its forthcoming title Contraband. The game first announced in June, 2021, with a trailer that gave an early look at its visuals and aesthetic tone. Developer Avalanche Studios describes it as a “co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan”.
Contraband may have a strong presence at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, based on the time frame in which the trademark was submitted by the software giant. Avalanche Studios has been secretly working on the game for a while, so it’s only natural that they’d have a demo reveal ready for Xbox’s largest games presentation of 2022. As such, it may end up being among these 9 secret previews that have been added to the Microsoft Store.
The 90-minute Xbox and Bethesda Games showcase will cover all you need to know about the diverse lineup of games coming to the Xbox ecosystem in the near future, including upcoming Xbox and PC Game Pass releases. Two games that are anticipated to be unveiled during this event are Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI.
While Starfield is set for release in the first half of 2023, The Elder Scrolls VI is still early in development and will most likely have a limited presence at the event, possibly with a teaser trailer of some kind. Aside from Wolfenstein, The Evil Within, and a whole new Indiana Jones game in the works at Wolfenstein developer Machine Games, Bethesda also has a variety of other IPs that may make an appearance at the event.
