Recent reports indicated that Microsoft's plans to roll out content about the Xbox Series X this summer had shifted. But after those surfaced, Xbox employees quickly stated that was not the case.
VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb originally reported a move in Microsoft's plans as part of updating his summer event calendar on Twitter. Grubb moved an event he dubbed "Xboxing Day" down to August, but when VG247 reported on this move, two Xbox spokespeople replied on Twitter.
"We have not pushed anything back, our plan remains to have our next digital show in July and teams are working hard on that," said Xbox's Aaron Greenberg on Twitter. Samuel Bateman, marketing lead for Xbox UK, echoed the sentiment in his own reply: "No it's not. We'll see you in July."
In May, an Xbox Wire blog announced Xbox 20/20, a series of "monthly moments" leading up to the launch of Xbox Series X. Though Microsoft had only confirmed the May episode of Inside Xbox, which featured a number of third-party games coming to the Series X, and its first-party showcase in July, some thought this also indicated a stream in June.
In a follow-up story from Grubb on VentureBeat, he says Microsoft was aiming to show the rumored Lockhart model of next-gen Xbox hardware at the unannounced June event, but that moved to August in response to Sony's PS5 showcase set for this coming Thursday. We've reached out to Xbox for clarification on the matter, and whether anything is being planned for June.
In lieu of an announcement, it looks like the next major Xbox news blast will be in July, when Microsoft rolls out its first-party games. Alongside the already-announced Halo Infinite, its likely we'll hear more from the many first-party studios that have gathered under the Xbox Game Studios umbrella.
