Xbox is set to livestream a series of panels it originally planned to share at this year’s Game Developers Conference.
Starting at 10:00 am PT / 5pm GMT on Tuesday, March 17, the platform holder will share two days’ worth of developer-focused content covering topics such as cloud and game development technologies from Microsoft.
Xbox Series X is scheduled to launch during the 2020 holiday season.
In a recent interview, first party engineers told VGC that Xbox Series X will have its own dedicated audio chip, which will improve the quality of sound in next-gen games.
Xbox studio Ninja Theory’s audio team told VGC they were ‘extremely excited’ to finally have hardware power dedicated to their discipline.
