With rumors swirling about potential new hardware announcements, Microsoft today teased its E3 2016 showing by saying the company expects "a special E3."

"We are just days away from E3 2016 and we're excited to share more details on what Xbox fans can expect this year and beyond," Xbox marketing chief Mike Nichols said in a statement today regarding May 2016's NPD results. "We expect this to be a special E3."

No further details were shared, and Microsoft has not yet offered any details on what fans can expect from the company's briefing.

Rumor has it Microsoft will announce a slimmed-down Xbox One during the show, as well as possibly one or multiple streaming devices. Outside of new hardware, we would expect Microsoft to talk about some of its upcoming games, and as always, there are likely to be some surprises.

Microsoft's E3 2016 briefing is scheduled for Monday, June 13, starting at 9:30 AM PST. The show will run for 90 minutes, which is in line with shows in past years.
