Microsoft last week held its highly anticipated Xbox Games Showcase where over 20 games were shown off. This includes the first campaign gameplay footage of Halo Infinite, the announcement of a reboot for the popular Fable series, the unveiling of the first next generation Forza Motorsport title, Obsidian's next open-world first-person RPG Avowed getting announced, and more.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer in an interview with iJustine on YouTube said more information on the Xbox Series X should be shared sometime in August.

"I am encouraged to be able to talk more about it. It should be August," said Spencer. "I think in August we’ll have more to say on that."

It is very possible the long rumored weaker next generation Xbox, codenamed Lockhart, will officially be announced, as well as the price and launch date for both consoles. More Xbox Series X games could also be announced or previously announced games could get more details and more footage. 

The Xbox Series X will launch in Holiday 2020.
