Microsoft will show us actual Xbox Series X gameplay footage on 7th May
Everything that we know about Sony and Microsoft's next-generation consoles is through promotional material, leaks, and official correspondence from both companies. However, we're yet to see any official gameplay footage from either company. Xbox Series X fans will be pleased to know that they won't have to wait very long to see the console in action.
The official Xbox Twitter handle just announced that we will get to see the Xbox Series X in action on May 7th, 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. Microsoft says that it'll be centered around third-party titles, so we won't get to see Halo: Infinite just yet. We could even get to see the glimpses of the recently-announced Assasins Creed: Valhalla if Ubisoft Spain is to be believed.
It is a common practice among developers to embellish their gameplay footage, so we should take this with a grain of salt. Regardless, it'll be interesting to see just how well developers utilize the Xbox Series X's powerful hardware.
This is very likely going to be one of may Xbox-centric events we'll see this year. Usually, these things happen at conferences like E3, but most of them stand canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. Now that Microsoft has shown its hand, Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal shouldn't be too far.
