Going back in time to May, Microsoft showcased its first Xbox 20/20 show. Many fans of previous shows thought that this years event failed to live up to the hype. This first show highlighted upcoming third-party games, such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla but fans wanted more out of the experience. Even Xbox marketing director Aaron Greenberg agreed that Microsoft “set the wrong expectations for the event.”
It should come to no surprise that next time around, fans will be looking for more out of Microsoft and their Xbox Series X next-generation console.
What can we expect?
Show time is quickly approaching. Microsoft’s July 20/20 event will feature first-party Xbox Series X games. This event is already primed to be bigger and better than the last one thanks in part to the first core entry in the Halo series since 2015, called Halo Infinite.
Apart from new game reveals, it seems the whole event is shrouded in mystery. Could we see Fable 4 or a new Forza? Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 or Rare’s new game title Everwild? Or maybe since Sony unveiled a digital Playstation 5 console, could we see the long-rumored all-digital next-gen Xbox? That remains to be seen.
What we know
It doesn’t seem that Microsoft is in a hurry to announce any more details about the event, such as a solid date for the show or any details of what will be shown. But it does sound like Microsoft has big plans for the event as Greenberg took to the twitter platform to say that the team at Microsoft is “working hard on it.”
Team working hard on it, good content review today in fact with the big boss. We will share more details when all is locked. Kindly ask for patience in the meantime. 🙏🏻💚🙅🏼♂️

A fan on tweet tweet kindly asked Greenberg for an update and he happily obliged. As we wait for more details we will continue to follow this event. Eager Xbox fans will just have to wait and see.
