At this point, we know pretty much everything there is to know about the Xbox Series X. We know what the next-gen console looks like, we know what's going on under the hood, and we even know that it'll support every generation of Xbox game with a fulsome backwards compatibility program.
What we don't know, however, is perhaps the most important thing at all. What games can we expect for the new console? I don't know about you, but I can only afford one next-gen console at launch. Since the differences in specs between the PS5 and Xbox Series X are minimal (the Xbox Series X is reportedly more powerful but the PS5 has a superior SSD), I'll be basing my decision entirely on the games that each console is getting.
Naturally, neither Sony nor Microsoft has shared this information yet. But hey, we've had lots of dull presentations and deep dives on specs. So... yeah, well done. The good news is that is set to change soon, at least as far as Xbox Series X is concerned. According to a recent tweet from Xbox boss Phil Spencer, the next-gen console's software lineup will be revealed relatively soon.

The most likely scenario is that Spencer and the gang have something big planned in lieu of E3 2020. We know that Microsoft was preparing to go hard at the LA expo, but since that's been cancelled thanks to the current crisis, the company has been exploring other options - most likely its own digital event.
Whether this will take place during mid June (which is when E3 2020 would have gone down) or kick off sooner remains to be seen. It's no secret that other companies out there like Ubisoft and Warner Bros. had their own big E3 shows planned, and are also looking to get their reveals out to the fans in other ways.
Since none of these companies are beholden to E3's June date any more, there's nothing stopping any of them from going ahead with their reveals earlier. We'll have to wait and see, but the next few months promise to be just as exciting for video game news as they would have been if E3 had gone ahead.
At this point, all I really want from Xbox is the official reveal of Fable 4 and a closer look at Halo Infinite in action. Let's hope the following months can make those dreams come true.
