Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many video game companies were forced to modify their plans for all of 2020. With consoles such as Xbox Series X going to release this year-end, Microsoft had promised that all its events would be digital, and the Redmond company has even confirmed the first presentation for this week. But now Microsoft has promised new live shows every month, starting from May 7 to the end of the year, under the name of Xbox 20/20.
After the Inside Xbox that will take place this week, the company plans to show what the future holds for Xbox fans with a series of monthly live shows, which seek to “engage, connect and celebrate with you about what’s in store for the next generation of gaming, including what’s next for Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud.” Thus, each month the company will bring different news, which will be announced from its site Xbox Wire.
As for its upcoming presentation, the Xbox 20/20 of May will focus on showing the gameplay of the new generation third-party titles, new trailers and the first look at a wide variety of games from both large companies and independent developers, as promised by Microsoft. In fact, it is already known that the first gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be shown at this event.
Likewise, new games will be confirmed that will use the functions of Smart Delivery, and all the games shown will be optimized for Xbox Series X, so they will take advantage of functions such as “4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super-fast load times and much more.”
It was also mentioned that the Xbox 20/20 of July will focus on the new games from Xbox Game Studios, the first-party titles of their own development teams, in addition to reconfirming that the exclusive title of Halo Infinite will release in late 2020, coinciding with the Xbox Series X console. Therefore, it seems that the next few months will be full of news on Xbox.
