With Xbox Series X Coming This Year, Microsoft Launches Xbox 20/20 Monthly Event
Introducing Xbox 20/20, Microsoft's monthly showcase of the Xbox Series X, Game Pass, and more.
With E3 2020 canceled, Xbox is shifting some of its plans to create digital events to showcase the Xbox Series X, its games, and more in the lead-up to release this holiday season. That includes a new Nintendo Direct-style video series called Xbox 20/20. Rather than host a few big events during the year in order to deliver the latest information, it will be spreading them out with more consistent and substantial announcements--and several will include specific themes.
These events will happen each month for the rest of 2020, beginning with the May 7 Inside Xbox stream--which you can watch right here-- that will focus on third-party Xbox Series X games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Each instalment of Xbox 20/20 will be different, focusing on things like Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass, xCloud, and more. They won't each be Inside Xbox events, either. With E3 canceled, its plans for the June edition are as of yet unconfirmed.
More specifically, the May 7 event will feature next-generation gameplay trailers for a variety of third-party games, though Valhalla is the only confirmed title so far. Additionally, game developers will talk about how they are leveraging the power of the Xbox Series X for their new games. This briefing will also confirm the games that use the new Smart Delivery feature, which ensures you don't have to pay twice for an Xbox game should you decide to buy the new Xbox Series X.
The July Xbox 20/20 event, meanwhile, will feature new details for Xbox Game Studios titles. Microsoft confirmed that all 15 of its internal studios are working on Xbox Series X games, though the company did not say which titles will be shown during the July event.
Fans will surely be hoping to see more of Halo Infinite, considering it is a launch title for Xbox Series X and no gameplay whatsoever has been released thus far. Microsoft teased that it will announce more games during the July event, while developers will also talk about how they are optimizing their games for the next-gen console.
Check back very soon with GameSpot for a full rundown of how to watch the May 7 Inside Xbox stream and what to expect from it.
