Microsoft may lay all the cards on the table during July’s Xbox Series X Event’ a reputable insider Shinobi revealed. Interestingly, 343 Industry confirms Halo Infinite will go live in the event.
Earlier this month, Microsoft showed off numerous third-party titles coming to the Xbox Series X, including Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, The Medium, Dirt 5 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
Microsoft also announced in the event that over 140 publishers and individual developers are working on Xbox Series X titles. With that fans were still not impressed with what they showcased in the event.
Aaron Greenberg Xbox’s marketing manager went ahead and acknowledged that the team might have set the wrong expectations for the event.
Well, from the look of things, however, Microsoft’s planned July Xbox Series X event will be different, and according to well-known insider Shinobi, Phil Spencer and his team are expected to lay all the cards on the table (showing off everything without reservation).
“I don’t like to give something like number rankings because July could roll around and someone might not get a specific announcement they were looking for and feel let down lol”, Shinobi wrote on the ResetEra forums. “And things can certainly change between now and two months from now.”
In addition to showing off titles from Xbox Game Studios, major third parties will also be present.
“The idea was always to basically lay all the cards on the table from first-party and have a big blowout. And there’s a ton of stuff to be excited about.
Definitely big AAA XGS reveals, other big third parties on stage (not necessarily exclusive). It might change a bit at this point in time given COVID-19, but you could say that’s the aim. I’m personally really excited for their show.”
As just confirmed by Halo developer 343 Industries, the upcoming Halo Infinite will be present during Microsoft’s July Xbox Series X event.
“You may have seen people talking about this lightly before, but we’re extremely excited to confirm that Halo Infinite will be one of many first-party titles included in the Xbox 20/20 event in July”, the developer wrote on its official Halo Waypoint blog.
The developer didn’t confirm whether actual gameplay will be shown, but following the aforementioned criticism that Microsoft received, chances are high that fans will be presented with at least a tiny piece of Xbox Series X Halo Infinite gameplay.
