Xbox Is Planning Its Own 'E3-Style' Event In June
Xbox seems to have some pretty big plans.
It's no surprise, really - their fresh intent to purchase Activision Blizzard back in January was huge news, standing as the biggest buy-out in the industry's history and it could yet have a huge impact on the wider world of gaming - even if we're still yet to see anything come of it.
Naturally, conversations have circled about what's in the pipeline from the company going forward, which games will become console exclusives to Xbox, and what Microsoft is planning to do about the ongoing allegations of a 'frat-boy culture' under the reign of current CEO Bobby Kotick. It's important, and we're yet to receive a lot of answers.
But, it looks like later this year could be the time we officially learn about what's to come.
Xbox Planning E3-Style Conference
An industry insider has revealed that around the time that E3 is set to take place, Xbox has plans for their very own event to showcase what they've been working on.
Jeff Grubb revealed on GB Decides that Xbox has some big plans for an upcoming event that could unveil a lot of what the company has in store for consumers.
"I'll probably have more to say on this soon, but it's in June, not May," he says. "Well, they might do something in May or September, I don't know, but I know that they're planning for an E3-style show in June."
"They're talking to partners to get big games in there," he continues. "That is ongoing right now and it's March, so it's not like they can change that train or turn that big ship around."
What Could Xbox Reveal During The Event?
There's a lot that could be revealed in a conference like this, especially if Xbox is in conversation with other partners to appear - but it's probably safe to assume that if they're hoarding info until a big reveal, it'll likely be something to do with the Activision Blizzard acquisition. So, perhaps we'll see announcements about which games will come to Game Pass on day one or what games will be become Xbox exlusives.
There's likely to be the typical news, too - Game Pass additions, new game reveals, potential new franchise titles and newcomers - anything is possible, and we trust that if Xbox has enough to reveal to fill a whole event, it'll certainly be something to behold.
Whatever's in the pipeline, we're excited to see it - especially if it means we've got more games to look forward to. If you're listening, Xbox, Overwatch 2 on Game Pass on day one would be nice.
