Today marks the 20th anniversary of Xbox, and Microsoft is celebrating twenty years since the release of Xbox with an anniversary event. Twenty years ago, on this date, the original Xbox debuted with Halo: Combat Evolved, marking the start of one of the most popular consoles and first-person shooter franchises to date.
The Xbox 20th Anniversary Event is a celebration taking place via live stream. There won’t be any game announcements, Microsoft says. “This broadcast will be a special look back at all the memories we’ve shared with the Xbox community over the past two decades.”
There has been much speculation about potential rumors of a Halo Infinite multiplayer beta and other game leaks and trailers, despite Microsoft announcing that this is more of a celebration than a look at things to come.
