Microsoft gave us our first look at official gameplay from the Xbox Series X back in May, but this month we get to see Halo Infinite and other first-party Xbox games in action on the new console.
The next episode in the Xbox 20/20 series of Inside Xbox has been dubbed the ‘Xbox Games Showcase’, and Microsoft promises our first proper look at the new Halo in action, along with the reveal of all sorts of other games from its internal studios.
This is just the start though. Xbox 20/20 will run for the rest of the year, with monthly updates on games, hardware, and more all straight from Microsoft.
When is the next Inside Xbox?
The July 2020 Xbox Games Showcase edition of Inside Xbox takes place on 23 July. Here’s when it kicks off around the world:
- 9am PT
- 12pm ET
- 5pm BST
- 6pm CET
That puts the event right in the middle of the Xbox Summer Game Fest demo event, which promises free playable demos of all sorts of games – so expect at least one of the revealed games to come with a sudden demo drop too.

What to expect from the Xbox Games Showcase
The first Xbox 20/20 included the first look at gameplay from an Xbox Series X, with footage from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla along with first looks at games including Bright Memory Infinite, Scarlet Nexus, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
We already know that this month we’re going to get to see Halo Infinite and other Xbox Game Studios games in action, including some new reveals. A new Forza feels like a safe bet, and we might also see more from Microsoft Flight Simulator and Hellblade 2, but beyond that all bets are off right now. Fable 4, anyone?
What we won’t see is a price or release date reveal for the Series X, or the reveal of the long-rumoured cheaper Xbox Series S. That’s currently expected some time in August, so hold tight a little longer for the budget next-gen option.
