Xbox event time is almost here, with gamers today set to get a blowout of Series X news from Microsoft. The Xbox Games Showcase will see Phil Spencer and co lift the lid on what next-gen games are planned for the Xbox Series X. There should be plenty of reveals for first-party titles, such as Halo Infinite, as well as some third-party announcements.
Given the number of studio acquisitions Microsoft has made, and the hype for the next-gen, excitement for the upcoming Xbox event is sky high.
And fans don’t have much longer to wait till the Xbox event kicks off.
It all begins at 4pm BST on Thursday July 23 when a pre-show event hosted by Geoff Keighley will be streamed.
After that it’s the main attraction, with the Xbox Games Showcase having a start time of 5pm UK time.

For those in other regions that’s 6pm CEST, 12pm eastern time and 9am pacific time.
The upcoming Xbox event will last for around an hour and will be focused solely on games.
That’s the message from Aaron Greenberg, the Xbox marketing lead, who last week on Twitter revealed the runtime for the July 2020 Xbox event.
Greenberg posted: “I know everyone is excited for Xbox Games Showcase next Thursday.
“Seen some wild expectations so if helpful this show has one focus, games. No business, devices or similar news, just games.
“A whole show about hour long focused on games. Hope you enjoy it!”
You will be able to watch the Xbox event via a number of different channels:
On YouTube the Xbox Games showcase will have a 1080p/60fps livestream and followed by a 4K/60fps video on demand afterwards.
