Microsoft had a massive presence at The Game Awards last year, which was where they first announced not only Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, but also formally unveiled the Xbox Series X. And it seems they may have something in store for this year’s awards ceremony as well.
Speaking recently during the GamesBeat Decides podcast, journalist Jeff Grubb said that Microsoft will be making an announcemnt at The Game Awards next week. He did not, however, elaborate on that, so we don’t know what the nature of their announcement – if they do indeed make one – will be.
As always, we can make some guesses as to what this announcement might be. Recently, Grubb stated that Forza Horizon 5 was in development at Playground Games and might actually release in 2021, before the next Forza Motorsport, so that could be one possible announcement. Meanwhile, it’s also possible that Microsoft ends up making a Game Pass-related announcement- they definitely seem to have a lot up their sleeves where their service is concerned.
We can, however, be sure that Halo Infinite won’t be at the show, with 343 Industries already having confirmed as much.
As always, stay tuned, and we’ll keep you updated as you learn more.
