For fans of the Xbox, we’ve got some awesome news for you guys. Xbox has announced that the Thursday, May 7 episode of Inside Xbox will feature a roadmap of the coming months until the release of the Xbox Series X. Dubbed Xbox 20/20, the episode will give us a glimpse at what Microsoft is planning for the next few months as well as gameplay on the Xbox Series X. As we reported earlier, Xbox has not been shy about showing off their console and even had Youtubers take a deeper look at what makes the console run. The only thing left for Xbox to show off is the games on the console. But, that’s about to change.

In a news release from the company, Corporate Vice President Jerret West said, “What was already going to be a once-in-a-generation year for gaming – a new generation of consoles, a wave of new next-generation games, and the launch of new ways to play with game streaming – 2020 has become the year that challenged us all and tested every commitment we’ve made in the face of COVID-19. Difficult tests tend to reveal your true priorities, and for us, they are the health and safety of our employees, our fans and partners. We also want to be transparent in letting our players know what we are doing and what we are thinking during such a crucial time.”

It truly looks like Xbox has listened to the fans and are going to lay out exactly what they’re planning throughout the year, giving gamers a peek into what could be coming down the line. In fact, Xbox 20/20 kicks off with a special episode of Inside Xbox, airing on tomorrow, May 7, 8:30 PM IST. The episode will focus on:

  • First look for fans at next-gen gameplay, trailers and sneak peeks form a wide variety of partners across the globe and industry
  • Game creators will share what they’re doing with their games on Xbox Series X
  • Confirmation of games that utilize our Smart Delivery feature
  • All games featured in the episode will be Xbox Series X optimized

In the news release, Jerret West also says, “Our goal remains to launch Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite this Holiday. All 15 Xbox Game Studios teams are hard at work on next-generation games for Xbox Series X and Xbox Game Pass. The best development teams around the world are working hard to have their games ready to play on Xbox Series X this holiday. For PC players, we plan to support the community by making all our major releases at launch available with Xbox Game Pass for PC, including Halo Infinite, Wasteland 3, Minecraft Dungeons and of course, Microsoft Flight Simulator.”

He also goes on to say, “We have new updates and titles lined up for Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. We’re expanding Project xCloud into new countries and on new devices—and later this year Project xCloud and Xbox Game Pass will come together, enabling you and your friends to play together in more ways. It’s a lot – and that’s saying something in 2020, a year which could be summed up as “a lot.” With all this in mind, we set out to create new touchpoints to celebrate gaming and share what’s next with our global community.”

From what we can see, Xbox is going all out with the Xbox Series X and are looking to garner the goodwill of gamers worldwide. If you want to know more about the Xbox Series X, you can check out our breakdown of the console, right here.
