In just a few days, Microsoft will be holding a special release for the 20th anniversary of the Xbox. What is the program, and how can I watch it?
For several weeks now, Microsoft has been preparing the ground for the 20th anniversary of its Xbox console, for the first time released in 2001. This November 15, several surprises will already be put on sale, including an Xbox Series X in the colors of Halo or a variety of accessories such as a controller and a wired headset. But that’s not all, since in addition to physical products, Microsoft has announced a special event, broadcast that same day.
The brand therefore gives us meeting this November 15 at 7 p.m. French time directly on the Xbox France Twitch channel. At the moment, it is not known if the event will be broadcast live on Youtube but it does not appear to be the case.

What is the program of the event?
The big question everyone is asking is: can we expect game announcements during the anniversary broadcast? The answer is no. Microsoft has warned that the distribution would be centered around the past 20 years and not the years to come. The goal is to be able to take a moment to “recall memories”, to retrospect both old generations of Xbox but also games.
The company also plans to engage lifelong gamers by offering to write down their best Xbox-related memories and send them to the brand on Twitter with the hashtag # Xbox20. You can also personalize your social networks or the home screen of your console with the wallpapers and banners available on this site.
