Microsoft has finally confirmed when the first public details about the Next Xbox will be revealed.
The format holder has confirmed a May 21st event at 10am PST in the USA – that’s 6pm BST UK time.
An event listing on Facebook talks of an Xbox Live and Xbox.com livestream.
"A New Generation Revealed. Be part of this historic online event, featuring a live stream, video, images, updates and more," it says.
It will also be broadcast on Spike TV in North America.
In a follow up blog post, Xbox’s Larry Hryb, ‘Major Nelson’, added that after the May hardware reveal the firm will show software at E3 in June:
"On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we’ll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and broadcast on Spike TV if you are in the US or Canada.
"On that day, we’ll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we’ll continue the conversation and showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games.
"We are thrilled to pull back the curtain and reveal what we’ve been working on."
