The next big Xbox Series X event is reportedly coming later this month. Microsoft has already confirmed that they will be revealing a set of new games.
Last May, Microsoft held its first Xbox Series X showcase. The event introduced a few big titles coming to the next-gen console, such as The Medium and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Now, rumors are indicating that the next presentation could even be better and bigger. Microsoft already confirmed that they would have another Xbox Series X event this July.
The goal of the event is to update their fans of the new first-party Xbox games coming alongside the new console. According to rumors, the event would take place in the third week of July.
The rumors didn’t mention the time of the event. However, based on the last presentation, players can expect the event to happen in the afternoon. There are still no official announcements on the event’s lineup. However, rumors and reports have given everyone a good idea of what to expect from the event.
The game will be Xbox Series X’s crowning glory among all of the launch titles. Microsoft already revealed that Halo Infinite would be launched alongside the next-gen console sometime in November.
The release date of Halo Infinite is closely approaching. This means it is highly probable that a new trailer or short gameplay will be revealed in the July event.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
Microsoft made Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2’s grand reveal during the 2019 Game Awards. Despite having an awesome revelation, news about the game has been scarce ever since.
It has been confirmed that the game is being developed via the new Unreal Engine 5. However, a timeline for Hellblade 2 is still uncertain.
Fable and Perfect Dark
Recently, fans have found two questionable Twitter accounts for Perfect Dark and Fable. One is registered to a Microsoft email account while the other is being followed by a single Microsoft staff.

The excited fans took these new accounts as a clue for a new Fable 4 and possibly a new installment for the Perfect Dark franchise.
Xbox Series S
Although Microsoft stated that the July event would focus on games, they could do a surprise console announcement for the Xbox Series S.
There is an abundance of rumors about this cheaper, diskless version of the Xbox Series X for almost a year now. There are leaked files, dug up patents, and different reports that suggest Microsoft is planning to release a cheaper version of the Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series X July event will probably be the best time to announce this next-gen console.
