Microsoft will return to E3 in "milestone year" for Xbox

Microsoft will once again run unopposed at E3.

Just like last year, Microsoft decided to use the opportunity of Sony not participating in E3 to reiterate that its own E3 plans are big.

Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, said on Twitter that the Xbox team will be sharing with fans "what's ahead of us" at E3, adding that meeting and talking to fans is a "special" part of the E3 experience.

The news isn't particularly surprising; Microsoft has remained committed to E3 at a time when many other publishers are either hosting their own events, or pulling out entirely.

Every year, Xbox occupies the Microsoft Theatre to unveil something new, and this year it's going to be a better look at the Xbox Series X and - presumably - its games.
