Microsoft is hosting a special Xbox anniversary event today to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first Xbox, which debuted alongside Halo: Combat Evolved. “While no new games will be announced, this broadcast will be a special look back at all the memories we’ve shared with the Xbox community over the last two decades,” Microsoft said.
While the event is intended to be a celebration rather than a news event, there could potentially be some worthwhile news. It has been speculated that an early beta of Halo Infinite multiplayer will be released to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Halo, but this is yet to go live if it is the case. Many Xbox enthusiasts have noticed odd patches to older original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.
When Is the Xbox 20th Anniversary Event?
The livestream will begin at 10 a.m. PT / 6 p.m. GMT on Monday, November 15th. If you miss the broadcast, there will be a replay available after the event. Microsoft is hosting the stream on Xbox’s official YouTube and Twitch channels and its Facebook page. There is a link to the YouTube stream above.
