The technology giant – which is behind the Xbox consoles – has decided to stage a livestream after the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco was postponed.
The company is set to reveal details of its Xbox Series X and Project xCloud on March 18, with the upcoming livestream being given the title, ‘Xbox Series X + Project xCloud = New Chapter in Gaming’.
The Xbox Series X is expected to launch later this year, with Microsoft previously saying that the next-gen Xbox will be four times as powerful as the Xbox One.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed he wants to add a new feature suggested by a fan.
The Microsoft executive responded on social media after a customer called on the team to make it possible to pick and choose which games will be auto-updated.
Tweeting Spencer directly, the fan wrote:
“Hey @XboxP3 can we get a feature to pick and choose what games get auto updated?
“My ISP like many others have a data cap so the auto update is turned off. Now I have to wait 2 hours for 1 update, no gaming tonight. (sic)”
The Xbox chief was clearly impressed with the suggestion – despite having his own way of working around the issue – and confirmed he’ll be passing the idea onto the team.
“This is a good feature idea.
“I usually uninstall things I don’t want updated (and leave the game pinned if I want to come back to it) but I like being able to mark installed games that I don’t want updated until I launch them.
“I’ll forward to the team. Thanks.”
