Microsoft’s Next Xbox reveal event, scheduled for tomorrow, will only be part one of a two part plan, according to Microsoft’s interactive entertainment chief of staff Aaron Greenberg.
Tomorrow’s first stage will focus on the console itself and a second presentation is scheduled for E3 where the company will focus squarely on the new platform’s games. “We have so much goodness that there’s no way we could have packed it all into one event,” Greenberg said while on Major Nelson’s latest podcast (via CVG).
“The best way I can describe it is, we’re really going to tell one story across two events. So we’re going to start on the 21 [of May] and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform and our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment. We definitely have a lot of surprises planned.
“People are going to get a great inside look at the making of the new platform and the team that brought it to life. To be honest it’s really about the team, the people here. We’ve never done this before, so it’s really exciting to be able to do that.
“It’s a lot of laying the foundation, and then just a couple weeks later we go to E3, and E3 is all about the games. It’s going to be tons of exclusives [and] world premiers.”
The Next Xbox reveal is set to happen tomorrow, May 21 at Microsoft’s campus in Redmond, Washington.
