Xbox 720: May 21 Reveal Confirmed

The Xbox 720 reveal event date has been confirmed for May 21, 2013.

The rumors have been flying about Microsoft’s next Xbox. As of May 21, 2013, we will finally all know for sure what rumors are true and which ones are not. After the February PlayStation 4 reveal event, gamers have been gathering hints about the Xbox 720 (if indeed that is what it will be called) like squirrels gathering nuts for winter. Even rumors have become valuable commodities for those just wishing Microsoft would lift the veil of silence after Sony already revealed their hand.

Microsoft had been going as far as to refuse to comment when its own creative director, now departed, blabbed on Twitter about the Xbox 720 being always online. You can be sure that gamers everywhere will be waiting on the edge of their seats as Microsoft finally shows us “the future” at a press event in Redmond, Washington.

Microsoft said in a statement:

“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 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.”

This is it, ladies and gentlemen and gamers of all ages. Microsoft has officially announced their Xbox 720 reveal event. Major Nelson has posted a countdown to the event on his blog for those who wish to keep tabs on the upcoming event.
