  • X019 is Microsoft's gaming celebration that takes place in November.
  • The focus of the event is going to be on "games, games, games" from the looks of it.
  • In the past, the Inside Xbox show accompanying the event has been criticized for recycled announcements.

Updated November 12, 2019: Microsoft released a promo for X019 in which it reveals that a lot of Xbox Game Studios titles will be present. Let's see what they are.

In a few weeks, X019 takes place in London. The event is Microsoft's celebration of gaming and will be filled with a lot of new reveals. In the past, the Inside Xbox show that has accompanied the event has been focused on smaller announcements, and not that many games. Well, it seems like the company took the hint this time around.

Recently, Xbox's Aaron Greenberg was asked what was going to be the focus of the show. He replied, "games, games, games, games, games." This is definitely great news, and hopefully, new Microsoft exclusives will be announced at the event. However, only time will tell.

  • The guy was asking if there will be new games. He just replied besides the point saying how they focus on games. Not new games. So I guess it'll be the usual stuff.
    Talking of updates or new content for old released games, games coming on game pass, already announced multiplats and more videos that promotes already announced games like Ori or Cuphead DLC which were initially announced for 2019. But then what else will this guy say? He is just the marketing guy...
    XO18 was so disappointing. I thought it was a bit of a joke with the fake fans, fake hype and empty show. They won't get me to watch it this time.
  • Me and my friends live 4 hours from the venue. We were about to buy tickets. But I broke my arm 3 weeks ago. As I'm self employed, I really can't go now. As I've earnt no money for 3 weeks. And most likely will be another week or 2. (thank God I had Gears 5 and TOW to play) So I'll unfortunately be watching from my sofa. Hopefully it comes back to the UK in years to come. Yeah I'm always super excited to see what comes out of MS these days. With more studios, and a good direction it's really exciting. We have had some great titles so far this year in Gears 5 and The Outer Worlds. Would be great to see maybe the Fable Reboot for Scarlett? But are we realistically going to see many titles from Xbox Game Studios? They are all working on Scarlett games now. All 15 studios. Will they show anything for Scarlett before E3? Honestly I don't know. We know Halo Infinite is launch title. They might show a small gameplay of that. But Ninja Theory, The initiative, playground Games 2nd studio, Rareware, Turn 10, etc. I can't imagine MS showing next Gen ganes from these devs even if they have been 2 years development time for some of them. I'll be happy to see them. I just don't expect anything before E3 for next Gen. I do however expect to see Bleeding Edge and Ori 2. I've stopped expecting. And will just watch these events and be surprised if there is something. I'm currently playing lots at the moment anyway.
