Xbox Series S

Earlier this week, Microsoft held an AI and Gaming Research Summit featuring Xbox head Phil Spencer.

Paul Thurrott from the website Thurrott (the same source that originally spotted this event) is now suggesting Microsoft will also be holding a "what's new for gaming" event next month, on 23rd March. This will apparently follow with a Windows event, but there's no date for this yet.

Just last weekend, The Verge's Jeff Grubb hinted at Microsoft hosting a Bethesda-themed event around mid-March once the deal was closed. It's led to speculation that these two supposed events might even be linked - although there's another theory that the "what's new for gaming" event will be purely business-focused.

What do you make of this yourself? Can you see Microsoft hosting a game event by mid-March? Tell us down below.
