Xbox Games Showcases Extended 2021 event is kicking off today. Following on from the blockbuster Xbox E3 event over the weekend, devs from Xbox Games Studios will once again be taking to the stage. The upcoming Xbox event will feature conversations with developers from studios like Double Fine (Psychonauts 2), Obsidian (Avowed, The Outer Worlds 2) and Rare (Everwild).
Microsoft has said the event will give “behind the scenes details and up close and personal conversations with developers”.
So to keep your expectations grounded, we wouldn’t expect any big gameplay reveals like with Sunday’s Xbox event.
However, there are a few tantalising segments to look forward to.
The pick of the bunch is arguably an update on Hellblade 2 from Ninja Theory.

Announcing this, the @NinjaTheory Twitter posted: “Tune in tomorrow for a behind the scenes update on the development of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.”
While the Sea of Thieves Twitter has announced today’s Xbox event will also debut gameplay from Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life.
The @SeaofThieves Twitter posted: “Tune in to today’s Xbox Games Showcase: Extended at 6pm BST for your first look at gameplay from Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life! With cursed crews, ferocious new foes and a certain Captain Jack Sparrow, you won’t want to miss it.”
The Xbox Games Showcase Extended 2021 event has a start time of 7pm CEST, 6pm UK time, 1pm eastern and 10am pacific.
