We've already shared the news that E3 2020 has been officially cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns, and Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has already weighed in. In a Tweet, Spencer noted that given how important E3 has traditionally been for the brand, the company will still be holding a digital event this year.

You can see the tweet below, in which Spencer notes that the timings and more are still yet to be confirmed. He also indicates that they'll use the event to "celebrate the next generation of gaming", which suggests we'll be getting a lot more info on the Xbox Series X as previously expected.

We're anticipating big things from this digital event, including a look at the Xbox Series X's lineup of launch games, as well as price reveal for the system. For now though, we'll have to wait a little longer until more details are announced "in the coming weeks."

Is this a good replacement for the traditional E3 press conference? Give us your thoughts in the comments below.
