What you need to know
- Microsoft is moving away from its "Xbox 20/20" phrasing .
- The company believes the phrasing implies that news will only appear as part of monthly showcases.
- Microsoft will share information at showcases as well as through several other outlets and mediums.
Microsoft will no longer use the phrasing "Xbox 20/20" as part of its announcements and programming (via Eurogamer). The phrasing was announced back in May but only used once. Initially set to be used as part of a monthly marketing "moment," the phrasing has been officially phased out. ResetEra first noticed the change in Microsoft's old May blog post.
Microsoft's full update on the change points out that the phrasing implies that Microsoft would only release information as part of monthly showcases. Here's the complete update from Microsoft:
Microsoft already stopped using the phrasing but has now officially commented on the change. Instead of using the phrase which implies news only at monthly showcases, Microsoft will instead roll out news in a "variety of ways." Some of these pieces of news will be during a dedicated show, but they will also appear in YouTube videos, through partnerships, and through Xbox Wire.
