As for what we will see, we should be getting a look Halo Infinite gameplay, Microsoft said last month on their blog:
Xbox Series X is now in the hands of our 15 Xbox Game Studios teams and the biggest names from our network of game development and publishing studios worldwide, ensuring Xbox Series X will power a new generation of blockbuster games, like Halo Infinite.
Microsoft Studios acquired The Outer Worlds developer Obsidian Entertainment and The Bard’s Tale IV developer inXile Entertainment in 2018. It will be great to hear of some upcoming projects from this RPG studios. inXile has already shared they are using Unreal Engine 5 for their next AAA RPG project.
There is also still the missing release date and pricing for the Xbox Series X. As it also releases around the same holidays 2020 window as Playstation 5, it will be interesting to see who will name their date first. There is also a rumour of an announcement for a second light version of the console called Xbox Series S, but this may be announced during an August event.
