Xbox Event Rumoured To Be Still Coming This Month

This week has been huge for Xbox fans with the Bethesda acquisition, and according to a new source, another event is on the way over the coming weeks which could continue that momentum.

Earlier this month, we reported that Brad Sams from the website Thurrott had discovered plans for a "What's New For Gaming" event to be held by Microsoft on March 23. Well, another source has also stated that this event is still coming, but it may have been pushed back a few days.

According to Windows Central, industry insider Jez Corden has had his own sources claim the event (suggested to be an "Xbox gaming showcase") will now be held on March 26, and the show may offer a glimpse at games coming throughout the remainder of the year, and perhaps after. Although, Corden notes that details are fairly scarce at the moment, so the event could be very much tech focused and only hold a few smaller announcements.

"More recently, through our own sources, it seems that this event looks to have shifted slightly to Friday, March 26. We've heard that the show may offer a glimpse at some upcoming Xbox games for 2021, and possibly beyond."

Jeff Grubb, another industry insider, has also reportedly done his own digging into the event and has added on Twitter to not "expect any news about big upcoming games here". He said those announcements will most likely come at E3 and the event will be more focused on services, but he did say it's possible some info on smaller games could be at the show. Whatever the case, more news is always good news and we will happily take more.

Keep in mind as well that Xbox's Aaron Greenberg recently stated that Microsoft had nothing coming soon that would feature game announcements or world premieres like Elden Ring, so it's best to keep expectations low.
