The Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 event is finally official. But apart from announcing its upcoming event, the gaming giant has seemingly teased its fans that it might share some juicy details about "Starfield" and "Halo Infinite" on the virtual stage.

Xbox has officially announced the schedule of its event at this year's E3. The team is scheduled to hold its showcase at 1 p.m. ET or 10 a.m. PT on June 13. The event, which the company calls the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, will be available via Xbox's Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook accounts. 

The teaser image for the event features "Halo," which suggests that the much-awaited upcoming title "Halo Infinite" will have a major presence at the showcase. The teaser also features a planet that many fans are familiar with because it is the same planet shown in the teaser trailer of "Starfield."

It's worth noting, however, that Xbox and Bethesda have not yet said anything about the games that they would showcase at the event.

In an announcement published on Microsoft's Xbox Wire, Xbox Games Marketing General Manager Aaron Greenberg shared that the show "will be focused on games from Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and many game creators from our partners around the world."

This confirms the previous rumor about the joint conference between Bethesda and Xbox. Fans can recall that last year, both parties held separate E3 events.

According to Xbox, the event will be "a 90-minute show packed with everything you want to know about the epic gaming lineup coming out of this partnership, the incredible games coming to Xbox this holiday, upcoming releases on Xbox Game Pass, and more."

Aside from this, Microsoft has another event taking place later this year. The digital event is called the Xbox FanFest and it's now open for registration.

"Starfield" is the latest space-faring title from Bethesda that the gaming studio announced a few years back. Meanwhile, "Halo Infinite" was said to be released earlier this year but was pushed back to a still-unannounced launch date.

"Starfield" and "Halo Infinite" are currently in development.
