This week Microsoft announced an Xbox Games Showcase as part of the Tokyo Game Show 2020. As the company also made clear, we shouldn’t expect any new details about the Xbox Series X.
If we ignore the confirmation that the Xbox Series X will be released in November of this year, then specific details about the market launch of the new Xbox are still a long way off.
Microsoft’s executives are also still silent about the Xbox Series S, which has been haunted by the rumor mill for months. After the company from the US-American Redmond confirmed a new Xbox Games Showcase this week as part of this year’s Tokyo Game Show, it was quickly speculated that details of the launch of the Xbox Series X could follow in the course of the event.
In order to take the wind out of the sails of possible rumors in the run-up to the Tokyo Game Show 2020, Microsoft spoke up again on the in-house news channel and pointed out that they were not adding any new details from the Xbox Games Showcase at this year’s TGS or expect Xbox Series X announcements.
The same applies to the Xbox Series S, which has not yet been officially announced. But what will the digital event then be about? A look at the following overview will tell you.
