Microsoft will reveal its first-party slate of upcoming Xbox Series X games (opens in new tab), including Halo Infinite (opens in new tab), in late July, according to new insider information from multiple sources within the games industry. 

The news comes via VideoGamesChronicle (opens in new tab), corroborating the same info shared by reporter Jeffrey Grub (opens in new tab), which says that Microsoft has internally scheduled its Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) first-party digital event for Thursday, July 23.

Rumoured titles for the live stream include Fable 4 (opens in new tab), a new Double Fine title, and whatever the heck new studio The Initiative (opens in new tab) has been working on, but a first look at gameplay for Xbox Series X launch title Halo Infinite will no doubt be the main attraction. 

Microsoft had originally planned to reveal more next-gen news with a live stream every month as part of its Xbox 20/20 (opens in new tab) initiative, but - following a tepidly received third-party showcase in May - June has come and gone without a similar event. 

Meanwhile, the long rumour Xbox Lockhart (opens in new tab) console is no doubt close to being officially unveiled, though it's unclear whether that can be expected as part of this month's upcoming briefing. 

In any case, stay tuned to GamesRadar+ for all and every piece of next-gen news as soon as it arrives. 

Here's what developers had to say (opens in new tab) about the recently revealed Unreal Engine 5 demo. You can also watch the entire thing for yourself in the video below.
