The time has finally come for Microsoft to step up. The company has posted the first teaser for its launch event happening on November 9th. It looks like the company is once again trying to showcase its new Xbox offerings and the games and other new features coming to the platform. While there is no announcement from some official accounts right now, we will get more details soon enough. The Xbox Series X and S launch on November 10, so it is probably the best time to let people know what they have to offer.
Xbox has been making news recently with the press releasing Series X previews and some controversial UI resolution decisions. However, its competitor Sony has also been slowly keeping up the hype with new teardown videos and UI reveals. In short, both of the consoles are all set for a battle of sales. This could be the main reason for Microsoft’s announcement on the new event on the consoles.
The new event details were posted on Twitter by the official Xbox account for Australia and Newzealand. The video only mentions a date November 9th, to be exact, and a time of 11 pm NZDT. Which surely hints that it is about an event and not some small release. Check it out below.
