Xbox Series X Optimized Is a New Badge That We Are “Going to See A Lot”
Microsoft teases Xbox Series X Optimized as a brand new badge that will be explained more during today's Inside Xbox.
Today, Microsoft is going to officially kick off its Xbox 20/20 monthly events that will provide more information on the Xbox Series X and its upcoming titles every month. Last night, Microsoft teased a brand new badge called Xbox Series X Optimized which is going to be explained more on today’s Inside Xbox.
As Xbox’s official Twitter account revealed yesterday, all the games that will be showcased during today’s Inside Xbox have been optimized for Xbox Series X. While we don’t exactly know what does this mean, it’s probably something similar to “Xbox One X Enhanced” badge in the current generation, which indicates that the game features high-quality textures and 4K resolution support on Xbox One X. That said, Xbox Series X Optimized might refer to some unannounced features of a game on Microsoft’s next-gen console that are yet to be revealed.
Every game you’ll see on #InsideXbox tomorrow will be Xbox Series X Optimized. Spoilers, you’re going to see this badge a lot.

Inside Xbox will go live at 11 AM ET today. Microsoft has promised to show the gameplay footage of some anticipated video games on Xbox Series X for the first time during the event. While Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the biggest games that will be shown at Inside Xbox, the digital stream will also feature some new announcements either from first-party or third-party developers. That said, the upcoming Inside Xbox will be less than an hour, with bigger events happening in June and July.
Xbox Series X is currently set to be launched in Holiday 2020 and Phil Spencer has ensured fans that they won’t delay the release date of their next-gen console, despite the unexpected challenges that have been caused by COVID-19 pandemic. However, first-party developers might not be able to meet the deadlines for finishing their projects. Halo Infinite, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, and Everwild are three major titles coming from three different teams at Xbox Game Studios to Series X, with more to be revealed in the near future.
