Xbox Series X Games Event Date Confirmed For July 23

Microsoft will hold its Xbox first-party games showcase on July 23 at 9 AM PT, the company revealed today, confirming a previous rumor. This presentation will focus primarily on Xbox Series X games, including launch title Halo Infinite. However, it’s unclear if the stream will focus exclusively on games from its first-party studios, or if it will also include third-party titles.

The July Xbox Games Showcase will come just over two months after a third-party games presentation in May that was presented as part of the Xbox 20/20 programming series. It featured in-engine gameplay from several different titles including The Ascent, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Scarlet Nexus, but it didn’t include extended demonstrations.

Typically, Microsoft would hold an event like its first-party games showcase as part of a larger E3 press conference in June, but E3’s cancellation due to COVID-19 meant it had to pivot to something else. PlayStation had already decided not to participate in E3 before its full cancellation, and it instead held a PS5 reveal event in June. Neither Sony nor Microsoft have announced an exact release date or price for the PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X will launch this holiday season and features Halo Infinite as a launch game. The game will also release on Xbox One and PC, with all three versions supporting cross-platform play. It will be the first time a core Halo game has ever released on more than one platform at the same time.
