What you need to know
- ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley reports that there's a "What's Next for Gaming" event on the way from Microsoft.
- It's likely to be tied up to Build 2021, the company's big annual developer conference.
- While there likely won't be games revealed at this event, it should offer a glimpse at upcoming tech and features for the Xbox platform.
Microsoft has previously made consumer-oriented announcements at Build in the past, revealing new products and services, too. It could be at this event where the planned expansion of Xbox Game Pass to web browsers is revealed, bringing the all-you-can-eat gaming service to iOS, Chromebooks, MacOS, and low-power PCs and laptops. Given Microsoft's widely-rumored talks to acquire gaming comms platform Discord, it would also be an opportune time to shed light on what the partnership means for the Xbox platform and beyond.
