Microsoft to Make Major Announcement at The Game Awards According to reports
Xbox has made headlines recently over plans for making an announcement at The Game Awards that has left its fans shocked and excited.
The Game Awards is considered by many in the games industry to be an event of immense prestige, celebrating some of the year’s finest releases while bestowing one extraordinary game with its own well-deserved crown of Game Of The Year.
This year’s nominees for this event have been revealed online and caused quite a stir among gamers. Bethesda’s Starfield IP was nominated, leaving many surprised, while Hogwarts Legacy didn’t even get nominated at all, further inflaming players’ frustration.
The Game Awards is more than just about handing out awards; it is also an event where major video game announcements and releases often make their debut, such as GTA VI trailer premieres or announcements of major features for future video game releases.
Rockstar Games may or may not have anything planned for this event, but one thing is for certain – Microsoft will make an exciting Xbox announcement at E3. But exactly what it may be is still unknown.
Jez Corden gave an announcement tease on Xbox Two podcast, yet did not elaborate further as to its nature or content. Many suspect it will be related to major game releases while others think it might involve plans for further acquisitions or plans of their own.
Microsoft recently concluded their deal to acquire Activision-Blizzard, suggesting they might make announcements regarding Xbox Game Pass subscription games or major exclusive releases in the near future.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox version will also finally receive a release date this year – likely late December according to reports.
Now all we can do is wait until The Game Awards on 7 December where Microsoft may reveal their surprise announcement.
