Microsoft has been fairly on point with its communication for the Xbox Series X, confirming an Inside Xbox episode for May 7th devoted to gameplay from third party studios. It also promised that the first party Xbox Game Studios would have some reveals coming up as well. In a new post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft confirmed that this would take place in July.
“In July, we will dedicate time to focus on the incredible games coming from Xbox Game Studios. A number of our studio teams are looking forward to sharing first looks at new gameplay, insights from development teams being optimized for Xbox Series X, and brand-new game announcements. We cannot wait to share this initial look at what some of those teams are working on.”
Of course, it’s also worth noting that Xbox 20/20 will kick off this month and serve to showcase “what happens next in the world of Xbox, every month.” Announcements for Xbox Game Pass, Project xCloud, Xbox Game Studios and Xbox Series X will be included in this. We’ll even hear more about which games will utilize the Smart Delivery feature. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which has its gameplay debut on May 7th, is confirmed to support the same.
Microsoft also revealed that its goal was to release the Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite this holiday season and all 15 of its studios were “hard at work on next-generation games for Xbox Series X and Xbox Game Pass.” It also reaffirmed that Project xCloud would be a part of Xbox Game Pass later this year. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime, especially with Inside Xbox coming up.
