Microsoft has been planning for the next Xbox 20/20 video showcase to take place in July since the May event. Despite rumors that there has been a delay, the July 20/20 showcase is still on track to happen as promised.
With that said, I can also understand the confusion. When Microsoft announced the first Xbox 20/20 event in May, the company promised a 20/20 event “every month” with a series of “monthly moments” that would give us a preview of how things are progressing with the Series X console. That first event gave us some insight to a ton of third-party games include our first but disappointing look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
With that in mind, it’s not surprising that some were expecting an event to take place in June. But, Microsoft also explicitly mentioned an event in July that would cover first-party Xbox Series X games from Xbox Game Studios – think Halo Infinite, for example. Word about the June event being delayed has been circulating the internet for a little while now, but now Microsoft employees are pointing out that the next big event was always planned for July 2020. Apparently, “every month” wasn’t the best choice of words for the company to use back in May.
We have not pushed anything back, our plan remains to have our next digital show in July and teams are working hard on that. https://t.co/e09NcRpVcC— Aaron Greenberg 🙅🏼♂❎ (@aarongreenberg) June 8, 2020
So, while it doesn’t seem like there will be another Xbox Series X preview this month, the good news is that the July 20/20 event is still on the cards. That event will be a big deal as we’ll probably get to see what the Series X is truly capable of since all the games showcased will be coming directly from the various Xbox studios. We still have some time to wait, but as they say, good things come to those that wait, right?
