Mark The Date, The New Xbox Will Be Revealed On May 21st
After month and months of speculation, Microsoft have finally confirmed that on the 21st of May the next-generation Xbox will be revealed during a special event being held at the company’s Redmond, Washington campus. On top of that, Microsoft is actually holding the event at a reasonable time, meaning you won’t have to stay up until two in the morning to feast your eyes on what they have to offer.
In an official blog post Microsoft spokesman Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb shared more about the reveal and what gamers should expect during the event.

On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we’ll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and broadcast on Spike TV if you are in the US or Canada.
On that day, we’ll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we’ll continue the conversation and showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games.
We are thrilled to pull back the curtain and reveal what we’ve been working on.
So there you have it, don’t expect a large showing of games during the Xbox reveal. In a way, it’s a rather smart move on Microsoft’s part, as they’ll basically be giving gamers a taste of what’s to come, with the main meal not trailing too far behind. It’s similar to what Sony did during their reveal too, showcasing a small amount of titles, rather focusing on the hardware during the reveal.
We’ve heard a lot of rumours about what the new Xbox will bring to the table, with the controversial “always-online” feature being one of the most popular topics in recent months. While we certainly don’t want that to become a reality, there’s a lot of other NextBox rumours that sounded like rather novel ideas, so let us know what you think the next Xbox should have in the comments below.
Just like the PS4 reveal, we’ll be ready and waiting to bring you the exciting news as it happens on the night, just in case you can’t get a decent live stream going.
