Is it E3 already? It’s beginning to feel like so! Microsoft has shown off the first selection of games coming to its next generation Xbox Series X console. And yes, most of these will be coming to the PC, too.
The software titan has promised to show off these titles every month until launch of the new console.
As part of its Xbox 20/20 events, which are essentially a monthly showcase of what the next generation holds for the platform. Redmond plans to unveil gameplay footage, trailers, as well as sneak peaks of third-party games, alongside what the developers think of the new hardware in the Series X.
