Xbox has announced it’s marking its 20th anniversary next month with a special broadcast it has scheduled for November 15.
A post on Xbox Wire announced the event, which will come in the midst of three months of big-name releases from Xbox Game Studios. They start with PC strategy title Age of Empires IV, which launches on PC on October 28. That’s followed by the new Minecraft: The PC Bundle release on Xbox Game Pass for PC on November 2. In case you missed it, that’ll bring together Minecraft‘s Java and Bedrock editions for the first time in one launcher.
November 9 then brings along open-world racer Forza Horizon 5, taking the racer to Mexico. Microsoft Flight Simulator will then get a new Game of the Year Edition update on November 18. That’s set to bring five new aircraft, eight new airports, new Discovery Flights, tutorials and more. The Reno Air race expansion for the game will also launch on the same day.
The three month Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations finish up with the launch of Halo Infinite on December 8. The team have also confirmed that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will also get monthly perks in the free Halo Infinite Multiplayer.
In the midst of all this then, there’ll be that aforementioned Xbox Anniversary Broadcast on November 15. Taking place at 5PM UK time, Xbox has confirmed that it won’t announce any new games. However, it does promise a “special look back at 20 years of Xbox” and promises more details soon. You’ll be able to watch it on all of Xbox’s social channels, including Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
Just weeks before the Xbox 20th Anniversary in November, we’re excited to kick-off three epic months of back-to-back blockbuster game launches in Game Pass. From Age of Empires 4 to Halo Infinite, there’s something for everyone. https://t.co/k6FqqYPLM2
