Microsoft is getting ready for its next showcase of what's coming to the next generation with the Xbox Series X. Today, the company affirmed that the Series X would be the sole focus of the show, at least as far as hardware is concerned.
Next week on July 23 (one week from today), Xbox will air a showcase highlighting games coming to the next generation of Xbox consoles. Xbox's Aaron Greenberg confirmed today that the focus will be on the games. "Seen some wild expectations so if helpful this show has one focus, games," Greenberg wrote. "No business, devices or similar news, just games."
Greenberg also confirms it will be about an hour long. In an Xbox Wire blog post, Xbox also says that the stream will run at 1080p resolution with 60fps on Youtube, and a 4K version with the same frame rate will be uploaded immediately after the stream ends.
We already have an idea of at least one thing that will be shown during the showcase, and that's Halo Infinite. 343 Industries will debut a first look at the next Halo game's campaign. More games are expected, and Xbox will also be hosting a demo event on its platform for a number of games both already announced and yet to be revealed.
Today's tweet is likely to dispel any rumblings about a potential reveal of Microsoft's rumored second next-gen Xbox model, known as Lockhart. Reports have suggested that Lockhart will be revealed in August, not July, but this at least puts Microsoft out in front of any speculation to the contrary. Looks like next Thursday will just be all about the games.
