Expert Verified By

Xbox To Mark Handheld Gaming Debut On June 9!

Story Highlight
  • An insider suggests the Xbox Portable will be confirmed at Xbox Games Showcase.
  • He states that Microsoft might not show the device or announce specifications, but it will officially announce the handheld at the showcase.
  • The leaker also believes more than 10 new first-party games will be shown during the event on June 9.

Microsoft has long been rumored to be working on a handheld as it prepares to expand the Xbox ecosystem beyond the typical console hardware. As part of this initiative, a new gaming handheld could prove to be a real game-changer for Microsoft.

While information on this initiative was not expected anytime soon, a reliable insider has added an exciting twist to the situation. According to eXtas1s,  the gaming giant will provide a tease for this handheld at the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase.

Why it matters: The Switch has proven to be Nintendo’s most successful modern console. Following its launch, nearly everyone in the industry has eyes on the market.

According to eXtas1s, this information has been shared with him very recently. The insider previously shared reliable leaks about Hellblade 2’s release date, Lords of the Fallen’s arrival on Game Pass, and more.

Following his latest scoop, he believes Xbox will debut about 10-12 brand new first-party games at the event. However, the handheld is likely to become the center of attention, with Microsoft finally pulling the curtains off this project later this week.

We are going to have a small teaser of Xbox Portable in the next showcase this summer.

The leaker has been unable to verify whether Microsoft will debut a trailer for the handled, present a rough specifications target, or share a potential release window. However, he suggests that audiences will know that an Xbox handheld is coming after this showcase.

Therefore, Microsoft will make the Xbox Portable official by the end of this week.

Elsewhere, PlayStation is expected to be working on a handheld of its own. With both gaming giants showing interest in this market, it seems portable gaming is set to return in all its glory soon.

If this announcement shows up at the event, the Xbox Games Showcase could be much bigger than anticipated. Much of Microsoft’s future direction for the gaming division remains a mystery for now, but fans are hoping for more clarity after this event.
