The Xbox Series X games showcase on May 7 promises to be a big and exciting event, featuring next-generation gameplay footage for a series of titles. But there is something very important to remember. Microsoft has said this event will focus on titles from its “global development partners.”
Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg confirmed on Twitter that Microsoft is planning a separate, later event to showcase the work of Microsoft’s various Xbox Games Studios teams. Greenberg said Microsoft has “some big summer plans” for showcasing first-party titles.
There are many options here. Microsoft could hold another one of its Inside Xbox livestream events to showcase footage of new Xbox exclusives. It’s also possible the company may choose to share information during the newly announced summer games shows, including the Gamescom digital event and Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest. Microsoft may do both, or something else altogether.
Whenever this event does happen, it could be stacked with news and reveals. Thanks to recent acquisitions and studio formations, Microsoft now has 15 game development studios, many of which have not announced new games yet.
The Xbox Series X releases this holiday, and Halo Infinite is a launch title. Despite being around six months away from release, give or take, Microsoft has not shown any Halo Infinite gameplay whatsoever. Halo fans are surely hoping that changes soon. The game will also release on the regular Xbox One and Xbox One X, as well as PC.
