Xbox Games Showcase Won't Feature Business or Hardware News

Written By

Xbox's Aaron Greenberg has confirmed that Thursday's Xbox Games Showcase will only feature games news.

Following some speculation online that we might see the reveal of the less powerful next-gen console Xbox Series S (codenamed Lockhart) and some other fan theories, Greenberg wanted to make sure the messaging was crystal clear going into the event.

"I know everyone is excited for Xbox Games Showcase next Thursday. Seen some wild expectations so if helpful this show has one focus, games," said Greenberg in a Tweet.

"No business, devices or similar news, just games. A whole show about hour long focused on games. Hope you enjoy it!"

This rules out any console news then which makes sense, as the Xbox Series S is reported to be revealed by Microsoft in August. Greenberg previously stated that Microsoft "set some wrong expectations" for May's Inside Xbox event, so it seems the company is making an effort to temper expectations ahead of the Xbox Games Showcase. Still, an hour of just games? I'm very much up for that.

The Xbox Games Showcase kicks off on Thursday 23rd July 2020 at 17:00 BST / 09:00 PT.
