Xbox is Officially Holding a Launch Event to Coincide with Release of Xbox Series X/S
Xbox is holding a live stream on November 10 to celebrate the release of the brand's next-gen hardware and Phil Spencer has detailed what fans can expect from it.
We had heard a little over a week ago that Xbox was planning to hold some sort of event to transpire on the launch date of the Xbox Series X/S, but specifics on what this live stream would involve weren’t given. Well, just a few days prior to the launch of both next-gen Xbox systems, we have finally received confirmation on what will be going down.
In a blog post written up by Xbox head Phil Spencer today, it was revealed that the company will be holding a live stream on November 10, the same day in which the Xbox Series X/S will be getting into the hands of day one purchasers. “On November 10, we invite you, players of all identities and backgrounds, console generations and devices, skill sets and tastes, to celebrate, connect, and play together,” Spencer wrote. “We invite you to grab your device of choice and play alongside Team Xbox, your favorite creators, and our partners, right from your homes around the world. We invite you to take a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the next generation of games, hear the stories of people who make them, and play along with them.” The stream will kick off across YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook at 2pm EST/11am PST.
Spencer also specified that this event will be more of one that is meant to celebrate Xbox and all things gaming, more so than it is a place to make major announcements. “This will be a moment of play, not press releases, as next generation consoles begin to land in the hands of players around the world. Instead of big announcements, we will mark the beginning of a new era by gaming alongside one another,” he said.
It remains to be seen what the exact format for the event will entail, but it sounds like it’ll be a fun thing to have on in the background over the course of the day. Even though it’s being said that there won’t be any major announcements during the show, we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop if anything notable comes from it.
