What took them so long? Microsoft has confirmed that it is planning a series of mini events at the upcoming BUILD 2021 developer conference that the company calls “What’s Next”.
These are designed to basically highlight the path forward for its products and services.
BUILD will take place from May 25 to 27 this year, as the biggest Microsoft annual show. It will be an online only event, because of obvious reasons. And while the full agenda of the event is yet to be revealed, we have some hints at what is being planned.
Mary Jo Foley is here with the details, confirming that these mini events will allow us to get a glimpse into what Redmond is planning on several fronts.
Unsurprisingly, gaming is also going to get some love, too.
No confirmation what Microsoft might reveal at this dedicated event, but we should not expect any hardware news or gaming unveils. Most likely, the company will discuss improvements coming to the gaming experience on its platforms. Perhaps, some talk about cloud gaming, which is now live.
Speaking of platforms, Redmond will also hold a mini event for Windows, that will provide us with an early look at the improvements the company is planning for the operating system.
A key focus could be the upcoming Windows 10 21H2 feature update that is expected to introduce major improvements on the features and UI fronts. Some teasers on that would be very welcome here, in order to provide us a glimpse at what exactly the company is cooking.
BUILD 2021 may be a while away, but the anticipating definitely is building.
Pun always intended!
