The launch window for the next generation of console hardware isn't far off at the moment. And while we've seen plenty about what's inside both next-gen boxes, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said today that it won't be long to see more about what Xbox players can play on them.
Replying to a question on Twitter about how planning is going for the eventual reveal of new games and Series X info, Spencer said he reviewed plans yesterday for "continued sharing" leading up to launch.
"We've heard you, you want transparency/authenticity," wrote Spencer. "We plan to keep showing that way, next step is not too much of a wait (games)."
Reviewed plans yesterday for continued sharing through launch. Team is doing great work and adapting. I've never been more excited about Xbox plans. We've heard you, you want transparency/authenticity. We plan to keep showing that way, next step is not too much of a wait (games)- Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) April 23, 2020
Only a handful of games have been confirmed for the next generation of Xbox, most notably Halo Infinite, as well as Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. Given the number of first-party studio acquisitions Microsoft made over the past few years, it's likely there could be more in store for the Series X.
As for when that news arrives, Spencer makes it sound like it won't be long. Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad recently commented that with E3 2020 cancelled, many planned announcements for that week have been moved around, some earlier and some later. Still, Xbox seems set on a 2020 launch window, even if some of these launch games end up delayed. With COVID-19 affecting just about every part of the industry, things are a bit up in the air at the moment.
