Sony recently announced it would be skipping E3 2020. In response to this news, head of Xbox Phil Spencer via Twitter said the Xbox team is currently hard at work on E3 2020. 

"Our team is hard at work on E3, we look forward to sharing with all who love to play what's ahead for us," said Spencer. "Our artform has consistently been propelled by the cross-section of creativity and technical progress. 2020 is a milestone year in that journey for Team Xbox."

"The fans are an amazing part of E3 every year for me and the team," he added. "Respecting and talking with the fans is such special part of the show each year."

Microsoft will launch their next generation console, the Xbox Series X, in Holiday 2020.

Of course they would capitalize on it, they can get a good press with it.

My guess is we will get a lot of detail about Series X and maybe Lockhart. They will finally show Halo Infinite gameplay, the rebirth of Forza as Forza Sport, Gears Tactics, the new Obsidian games, the new Rare game, Kinect 3.0, maybe show backward compatibility, then end the show with a new Xbox One model.

Sony's last E3 and PSX event were not that great, it's better that they are doing their own special event for PS5.

Zenos (on 14 January 2020)

That's a good counter to the Sony no-show announcement.

Probably re-strategizing there plans to not give too much away like last years events. I suspect a Series S reveal and a bunch pf announced games.

Bandorr (on 14 January 2020)

All I remember from last year is a ton of trailers, and Keanu reeves. They didn't do much without Sony there last year. Curious what they can do this year.

Jranation (on 14 January 2020)

Obviously all the games coming to Xbox Series X. They didnt talk about that last year.

Mr Puggsly (on 14 January 2020)

And vice versa, plenty of 3rd party content on Playstation shows. These are both platforms that rely on that.

If also Nintendo or Microsoft would skip E3 besides Sony, this would definitely mean the end of E3 as an important event.

RaptorChrist (on 14 January 2020)

What a skeever.

RolStoppable (on 14 January 2020)

Phil Spencer can insinuate that Sony is not respecting their fans and get away with it.

Mr Puggsly (on 14 January 2020)

That's not really the hand they try to play and I like that.

No one can provide a reasonable defense for Sony because there is no need to. If they want to no show E3 they can do that. When I pick a console I don't care if they went to E3 or not. I care about them delivering on their promises and delivering games I like. Going to E3 means nothing to me. Just release a good console and good games and you've done your job. MS is halfway there but hey at least they are going to E3 to show off a bunch more games. How many will actually make it out of development? Who knows.

MS has been insinuating this for years. "You should be able to play your games on whatever device you want!"
is code for "Exclusives are evil and Sony is evil for having them."

@Cerebral - I suppose it could be read that way. I think the real goal was saying, "play wherever and however you want" sounds better than, "now you have another MS
platform option."
