MICROSOFT looks set to unveil its own roster of Xbox Series X games at a secretive event on July 23 – that’s TONIGHT!
It’s rumoured that Microsoft will show off loads of new titles – and potentially even a second, cheaper spin-off next-gen console.
Xbox Summer Showcase – what is it?
The Xbox July event is expected to showcase games from Microsoft’s own Xbox Game Studio.
This likely includes footage of the upcoming Halo Infinite – an Xbox Series X blockbuster title.
The event will take place on July 23, kicking off at noon New York time and 5pm London time.
Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg previously said on Twitter that the team is “working hard on it”.
Xbox Summer Showcase – what to expect
Details of exactly what we’ll see remain a mystery.
But it’s likely we’ll hear news – or potentially even see gameplay – of Microsoft’s own games.
Back in May, Microsoft showed off third-party titles coming to the Xbox Series X – like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
But fans were left disappointed with a lack of exclusive Xbox blockbusters.
The hope is that Microsoft will show off more about Halo Infinite, the next game in the popular Halo franchise.
It’s built on a brand new game engine, and will be the first proper Halo game to come out in around five years.
Xbox Series S – will we see an announcement?
The headline rumour, however, is that Microsoft will announce a partner console for the Xbox Series X.
It’s expected to be an all-digital console with no disc tray – likely sold at a cheaper price.
Sony has already offered up much the same with its new PS5, which comes in non-digital and digital variants.
And Microsoft arguably spearheaded this trend with its all-digital Xbox One S, which came out last year.
