Xbox is celebrating its 20-year anniversary with a virtual event looking back at the Xbox community over the years and what the next 20 years have in store. Plus, those who tune in to the live stream can check out exclusive 20th Anniversary giveaways.
Taking place at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST today (November 15), the celebration will focus on reminiscing on the Xbox team's favorite moments from the past 20 years of Xbox. General manager of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg stated fans should not expect any new game reveals, and is not designed as a "news beat." Still, we expect some big moments, including a sneak peek at future plans for Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X updates, and possibly a better look at Halo Infinite.
