Microsoft have announced a new initiative this morning, Xbox 20/20. It aims to bring direct videos and information in the form of monthly updates to Xbox fans. You’ll find the full statement here.
Jarret West of Gaming Marketing at Xbox wrote a blog post this morning detailing exactly what Xbox 20/20 is going to be.
“Starting with the May 7 episode of Inside Xbox, we will be showcasing what happens next in the world of Xbox, every month, which is why we’re calling it “Xbox 20/20.” These monthly moments will take place throughout the rest of the year and will be a way for us to engage, connect and celebrate with you about what’s in store for the next generation of gaming. Including what’s next for Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud. Every month will bring something different. Stay tuned to Xbox Wire for more details.”
What Xbox 20/20 Brings on May 7th
According to West “we will focus on giving you a first look at next-gen gameplay, trailers and sneak peeks”. This includes the recently announced Assassins Creed Valhalla. We can also expect to see many reveals from Xbox Studios own developers. West makes it clear that the Xbox Series X own advantages will also be revealed fully:
“All the games you’ll see will be Xbox Series X Optimized. Meaning they are built to take advantage of the powerful Xbox Series X features that make games look and feel incredible. Including 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super-fast load times and much more.”
Don’t expect too many Triple A first party or big announcements though, as West says they’ll bet coming in July.
“In July, we will dedicate time to focus on the incredible games coming from Xbox Game Studios. A number of our studio teams are looking forward to sharing first looks at new gameplay, insights from development teams being optimized for Xbox Series X, and brand-new game announcements. We cannot wait to share this initial look at what some of those teams are working on.”
We’ll keep you updated as these events happen, so keep it locked to Culture of Gaming for all Microsoft and Xbox 20/20 related news.
