This event presents a significant opportunity for the brand to reverse the negative perception of the company following the closure of multiple studios and the confirmed layoffs this year. Players want to see big names and dates revealed on the presentation, with more exclusive titles coming to both consoles and PC. There is a lot of expectation put into this showcase; Xbox needs to improve its sales.

Once this event is over, Activision Blizzard will have its own showcase, revealing the first gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 6. According to Microsoft, this new entry in the popular and billion-dollar franchise will be Day 1 on Game Pass, making a big change for the service in the coming years. There are also rumors about a price increase once this and other major titles are confirmed to be in service.
