Xbox Series X July Event Won't Cover Hardware, Only Games

Microsoft is set to host its next Xbox Games Showcase next week, on July 23, which the company has now detailed a little further in a new blog post.

The message for the stream is clear: games. Microsoft says viewers can expect their first look at Halo Infinite’s campaign during the event, as well as updates on already announced titles and brand-new world premieres. Unlike the company’s previous stream in May, this showcase is centered on first-party titles which will come to Xbox and PC.

Responding to rumors surrounding the event, Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg clarified further on Twitter that the event will be just about games and nothing else, squashing hopes of a surprise console reveal for the heavily rumored Xbox Lockhart or talk of a price for the Xbox Series X.

The stream will be an hour long and streamed across YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter. Like Sony’s PS5 reveal stream, the event will cap out at 1080p/60fps during the live broadcast, but Microsoft has promised full 4K trailer uploads after it has concluded.

Microsoft’s first big stream for the Xbox Series X took place in May with a host of third-party reveals and console exclusives. The stream was criticized for not featuring much gameplay, with Greenberg apologizing the day afterwards. Microsoft also recently announced that xCloud will be included in Game Pass Ultimate starting this September.
