Yes, it says that in the OP. Halo Infinite isn't a new game. This is where they'll show off the campaign since it's also the 20th anniversary of Halo.
Perfect chance to start building on marketing, while they say they wont show any NEW games, MS has announced .. ALOT of games that haven't been shown off properly yet so there could be a chance we get to see some gameplay from multiple games.

Well, they probably had to delay a bunch of thigns due to COVID

I expect maybe a couple new trailers and maybe new games coming to XGP

Managed to snag myself an anniversary controller but missed out on the fridge sadly :(

I hope they announce a 20th anniversary console to match the controller.

I am 80% sure we will see some BC announcements.

I pray that we will see resolution boost as well.

Are they just going to announce how all their fridges were bought by scalpers?

i really wouldn't expect any game trailers or updates for stuff like Avowed, Redfall, etc. I would expect those to come during prime time TGA.

Halo would be the only expected trailer of an upcoming game given the situation. Then, maybe some fun stuff like BC updates and whatnot

Yeah, TGA will easily have a 3x reach than the xbox stream

No new games, not even more BC games?

BC games are not new games. I think that they simply won't announce any new projects but we can expect new BC titles and maybe update on few games that we already know about.

Dropping new BC titles in a stream that celebrates 20 years of XBOX makes too much sense.

I expect a full explanation of why Phantom Dust Reboot has not been picked up again. What is Code Mystics up to. I alpha tested the remaster and was able to talk directly with the developers how that game should proceed, including new features added like the daily login rewards.

It was literally the biggest honor I've ever had in gaming, seeing as Phantom Dust is my favorite game of all time.

Microsoft needs to answer for this transgression. Bring back Phantom Dust Reboot.

Edit: I'll probably get nothing and like it.

Saddest thing about watching this is, if they go back and show stuff from the original and 360 consoles, it'll get me really shitty about how far back Microsoft have fallen in the console space (in my opinion for anyone looking to get upset). They used to be so good in the console space, especially during the 1st half of the 360's life (not withstanding the dreaded ring of death). Their "arcade" games on xbox live were an absolute treat. They had the best versions of MANY games and it was THE place to play online. Again, IN MY OPINION they have dropped the ball so badly to focus on other things... like game pass. I miss the focus on consoles. I miss games like PGR and their brilliant arcade games (Bejeweled 3, Geometry Wars 1 and 2 etc...)

Man some people can just not get past the Xbox. Yeah they screwed up in the beginning, but the stuck the landing.

They have killed it from a hardware standpoint ever since.

Damn, it's been 20 years already/

I remember skipping school that day to stand in line at WalMart to snag me one.

I don't think you quite understand the concept of IN MY OPINION... In MY opinion I don't like the direction Microsoft have taken with the Xbox brand since the Kinect came out and then the One X was released. I'm more interested in when they focused on console gaming and making sure it felt like a community of gamers together with the best versions of the best games! Now they seem to be focusing on a subscription service and buying as many game companies as they can to lock games away. Again, in MY opinion i'm not a fan of this direction at all.

I'm tempted to buy a SSD expansion but I'm going to hold off until this just incase there is other options or sizes announced.
