Microsoft announces Xbox Series X games event for July 23rd

Microsoft will hold its Xbox Series X games event on July 23rd at 9AM PT / 12PM ET. The company is planning on showing games produced by its Xbox Game Studios, including Halo Infinite. 343 industries shortly teased Halo Infinite in a trailer a few weeks ago, revealing that The Banished antagonists are returning for another big installment in the Halo franchise.

There will be more than simply Halo, though. Microsoft has been steadily acquiring game studios, and the company now has 15 Xbox Game Studios as a whole. Xbox fans are now hoping to see what those studios will work on for the Xbox Series X. Microsoft recently created a Fable placeholder Twitter account, leading fans to wonder if the game will make a get back during July’s Xbox event. Microsoft also recently extended its Fable trademark to cover USB chargers, portable speakers, headphones, and much more.

Given Microsoft released a Hellblade 2 teaser during its Xbox Series X unveiling last year, it’s reasonable to assume we’ll see more from Ninja Theory relating to this upcoming title. Psychonauts 2 is still due in 2020 from Microsoft’s Double Fine studio, and there’s bound to be some hints at how Forza and Gears of War will adapt to the more powerful hardware in the Xbox Series X.

Rare also unveiled its new Everwild game in November, and we might get yourself a closer look at that during Microsoft’s event. And like always, Xbox fans are still hoping for surprises like a new Perfect Dark or Banjo-Kazooie game.

Microsoft has promised that some of the company’s Xbox Game Studios teams will reveal new gameplay, games optimized for Xbox Series X, and even brand-new game announcements.

Stay tuned to The Verge on July 23rd for all the latest Xbox Series X games information and much more.
