Microsoft has some big plans for gaming on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 in 2016, and it wants to let the media learn more about on February 25. That's when the company will be holding a press event to offer hands-on times with upcoming games for both platforms and share some news about their plans.
The press event will be held in San Francisco, about three weeks before the 2016 Game Developers Conference is also held in that same city. According to the invite, Microsoft will give the assembled press "the chance to hear from Head of Xbox Phil Spencer and get hands-on with the best games and platform experiences launching this spring on Xbox and Windows 10."
That means we could get hands on time with games like the long-awaited Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break, along with the upcoming Windows 10 versions of Killer Instinct and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. It's also possible that Microsoft has some surprises up its sleeve for the event.
Windows Central has been invited to the Feb. 25 press event and we will have first-hand coverage of Microsoft's announcements, along with hands-on time with the games that will be available to play. The embargo lifts on March 1st.
