Microsoft has confirmed plans to celebrate Xbox’s 20th anniversary next month with a special digital broadcast.
The show will air on November 15, 2021, exactly 20 years after the launch of the original Xbox. It will start at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT.
“We invite you to join us on Nov. 15 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Xbox and Halo with a fun, digital broadcast for fans around the globe,” the company said on Tuesday.
“While we won’t announce any new games, this anniversary broadcast will be a special look back at 20 years of Xbox. We’ll share more details soon, so stay tuned.”
Microsoft will launch the first limited edition Xbox Series X console and a limited edition Elite Series 2 controller on November 15. Priced at $549.99 / £479.99, the console’s design was inspired by the Halo universe.
Another 20th anniversary special edition Xbox controller and a special edition headset will be released next month too.

According to XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker, Microsoft may be planning to expand its backwards compatibility programme by making a new wave of original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles playable on modern hardware in November.
