We already know that E3 2020 was totally cancelled. Because of this, companies will have to find their own way to spread their important news. The next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft will be released shortly, so a presentation with many details is expected. So far, the company in charge of the Xbox Series X has not released its plans around this presentation. But information has emerged that reveals that there will be 2 digital events.
Microsoft Preparing Two Major Xbox Digital Events for May and June – Rumor
This is known thanks to a publication in 4Chan that states that Microsoft is preparing 2 events; the first would take place in May, while the other would take place in June. The May event would focus on hardware; that is, in the formal revelation of Xbox Series X, although there would also be some game announcements.
In May, Microsoft would prepare the other event, which would be a kind of replacement for E3 2020, and it is expected to be loaded with games. One of the announcements would be the new installment of Fable that has been rumored so much in recent days. The best thing is that the informant anticipates that the world will be partially generated by hand with the help of photogrammetry and that it will also be generated procedurally.
Also, the information indicates that there will be news related to Halo Infinite. A new unannounced title from Obsidian Entertainment, an alleged restart of Forza and a “big exclusive IP” that will be borne by a Japanese studio.
Maybe at this point, you are thinking that it is a rumor in 4Chan and that many times it is information created by fans. However, this time it draws a lot of attention because some informants who have previously guessed right seem to confirm this or at least seem to indicate that Microsoft is preparing these 2 events.
The user XcloudTimdog is one of them, and he refers in his messages that this publication in 4Chan coincides with the information he has recently heard and refers to the fact that Microsoft has a lot to talk about. Among which is the second rumored model of the new Xbox, codenamed “Lockhart,” for which Phil Spencer, Xbox boss, gave a clue. Something that is also striking is that another informant, klobrille, responded to the message with an interesting image.
Hate to see it but a 4 chan post kinda lines up to some of the stuff im hearing. With that being said , probably more confirmation its not real, but id put it out there to see what ya think https://t.co/6Uo7SSEmkI

That said, we invite you to take this news as a rumor only, despite the many leads that have surfaced in recent days. The good thing is that, at least, Microsoft has already confirmed that there will be an event after the absence of E3 2020. Although it is not known on what date it will take place, it is expected to happen in the middle of the year, so we would not have to wait long to discover what Microsoft is preparing.
