Microsoft is taking on the next gen with guns blazing and as soon as Sony announced that they wouldn’t be taking part in E3 2020, Phil Spencer quickly took to Twitter to announce that they are, on the other hand, hard at work for the upcoming convention.
Our team is hard at work on E3, we look forward to sharing with all who love to play what's ahead for us. Our artform has consistently been propelled by the cross-section of creativity and technical progress. 2020 is a milestone year in that journey for Team Xbox. #XboxE3 #E32020

For the second year in a row, the spotlight will be front and center for Xbox and there would be no better time and place to pull out all the stops and convince consumers that the Xbox Series X is indeed the way to go for the next generation. They’ve built a strong foundation with moves such as acquiring a lot of studios to beef up their exclusive titles as well as bank on backwards compatibility to make the transition seamless for the existing fanbase.
E3 2020 will take place on June 9-11 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
