Today, Microsoft announced a monthly event that it will be holding called Xbox 20/20. There's no E3 briefing this year, so the company will be holding these events to showcase the Xbox Series X, its progress, and its games. The first one will be on May 7, and the focus will be on next-generation gameplay, trailers, and sneak peaks, including Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Another thing noted in the blog post is that the Xbox Series X is still on track for 2020, as are games like Halo Infinite, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Wasteland 3, and Minecraft Dungeons. These games will also be available for Xbox Game Pass on day one, and Project xCloud will come together with Game Pass later this year as well.
Mmmmm that Xbox Series X boot sound is so satisfying. They just keep getting better with each hardware iteration.
