We’re nearly there. Expectations for Xbox’s July showcase are high and continue to gain steam and the prevailing thought at this point in time is that the showcase will be held the week of July 20th. But the bigger question has been, what can we expect to see from the new Xbox Game Studios developers?

And to be clear, while this is speculation at this point in time, it does line up with what we’ve heard from other sources outside of Andy as well.
