From a new Xbox to the next 'Halo' game, here's everything that Xbox announced during the biggest gaming event of the year
- Microsoft announced dozens of new games coming to Xbox during their presentation at E3, the biggest video game event of the year.
- Die-hard Xbox fans will have to wait until fall 2020 to play "Halo Infinite," but long-awaited games like "Gears of War 5" and "Cyberpunk 2077" will help keep those consoles warm until "Halo" is ready.
- There were some other Xbox surprises too, like a new "Minecraft" dungeon crawler and a Lego crossover event for "Forza Horizon 4."
Microsoft opened the biggest gaming event of the year in style - the company's presentation at E3 revealed dozens of new games and showed off exclusive trailers for some long-awaited titles like "Cyberpunk 2077."
The company also teased the next-generation Xbox, which is codenamed Project Scarlett. While there was little more to show than wires and circuits, Microsoft developers said the new console will be four times as powerful as the Xbox One X, the company's current $500 powerhouse device. Project Scarlett will launch during the holiday season of 2020. Microsoft revealed that "Halo Infinite" will launch alongside Scarlett and shared the first trailer for the upcoming game.
While it will be more than a year before Microsoft's biggest E3 teases come to fruition, the presentation was full of exciting details on upcoming games. Xbox fans have plenty to look forward to in the coming months. Microsoft has worked hard to expand the Xbox One's game library; the company spent much of 2018 acquiring new game studios to help develop new Xbox games, and we'll be seeing the results in the coming months.
It's easier than ever to access hundreds of Xbox and PC games thanks to the Xbox Game Pass, and dozens of upcoming Xbox games, including "Gears of War 5," will be available to Game Pass subscribers the day they're released.
