Microsoft is expected to detail both Project xCloud and the Series X Xbox by live stream on March 18th. This follows the GDC’s COVID-19 cancellation.
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc upon events all over the world, and that includes the upcoming Game Developers Conference (GDC). Although it wasn’t cancelled, the event was postponed until further notice. According to The Verge, this isn’t stopping Microsoft from unveiling all the intricate details regarding Project xCloud and the new X Series Xbox. The event won’t be in person, but rather by live stream. The event is set to take place on March 18th, 2020.
Last year’s Game Awards showcased an unveiling of the new Xbox’s hardware design and even went as far as to confirm the 12 teraflop GPU performance. After an announcement of that magnitude, fans are presumably expecting more details and news regarding potential release dates, software changes, and more. According to Microsoft, the live stream, which will last over an hour, is dedicated to showing fans how to get the most of the beefed up hardware. Analysts predict they’ll release some pretty extraordinary details about the console as well.

The newest Xbox has been confirmed to have a CPU that’s been custom-designed. The design is supposedly based on architecture from Radeon’s RDNA 2 and AMD’s Zen 2. The console will also feature an NVMe solid-state drive (SSD) intent upon decreasing the time it takes for games to load. The console is expected to support 120 fps frame rates and 8K gaming. Microsoft just recently confirmed that they’ve partnered with both TV makers and the HDMI forum in order to push along a Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and what will be called an Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM).
Microsoft announced to fans last week that the Xbox Series X will actually be able to resume multiple titles all at once. Even going as far to say that the console will resume games following a complete system reboot.
