Xbox Developer Direct January 2024 leaks and rumours

A previously leaked date for a new Xbox Developer Direct is January 25th, 2024. This leak comes courtesy of prominent leaker eXtas1stv. Their post includes a promotional graphic for the event with the date plus YouTube and Twitch symbols to watch it live.

Microsoft’s last Developer Direct took place on January 25th back in 2023. Last year’s promotional art teased the inclusion of developers Ninja Theory, Mojang, Turn 10, and Arkane Austin. The 2024 promotional art shared by eXtas1tv includes developers Ninja Theory, Obsidian, Stoic, and Oxide.

Aside from the included developers, the leaker has also said there could be a shadowdrop release of a new game from Psychonauts 2 developer, Double Fine. The game in question could be either KILN or something else.

It’s not confirmed to be a shadowdrop release exactly like HiFi Rush, but it is a possibility or it could get a release date that is very close. If it is KILN, then fans will be treated to a multiplayer team-based crawler where you play as supernatural beings forever at war.
