Xbox 20th Anniversary. Today happens to be a big day for the Xbox brand because today marks 20 years since the launch of the original Xbox. The first Xbox console was first launched by Microsoft on November 15th, 2001, with Halo: Combat Evolved as its most notable launch title.
In celebration of this anniversary, Microsoft happens to be hosting a special Livestream later today, and more rumors that actually cropped up over the weekend suggest that there would be more to this stream than Microsoft is allowing.
How to Watch Xbox Livestream
Before we would be able to talk about any surprises that might take place during today’s Livestream, we first need to talk concerning when it will be taking place and how we would be able to watch it. Today’s 20th Anniversary Xbox Livestream will happen at 10 AM PST/1 PM EST, and it would be streaming on different platforms.
One of the easiest ways for you to watch is through the YouTube Stream we’ve embedded below, but it would also be up to Twitch and Facebook for folks that prefer to make use of those platforms.
Microsoft also has noted that the Livestream would be available with the subtitles in a wide variety of languages, including
- BR Portuguese

We are not very sure of how long the Livestream would be slated to last, but we are aware that Microsoft would be planning to “celebrate some of their best moments from the 20 years of Xbox.”
Microsoft Halo Infinite Surprise
While we are yet to be expecting any game reveals during the Livestream, Microsoft might still have some major surprise straight up its sleeves. Over the weekend, we began hearing rumors stating that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer would be releasing a surprise today rather than on December 8th, which is the current date of release for the whole game.
It now seems like these rumors were kicked off by Twitter user Adam Fairclough discover reference starting November 15th hiding right inside Xbox store data for halo Infinite’s multiplayer (references that have been changed to December 8th, for what it’s worth).
Over the weekend, there have been tons of back and forth, with some interesting suggestions that Microsoft intended for a major surprise Halo Infinite multiplayer release only in other to stop at the very last minute based on the logistics behind offering a game released earlier is complicated.
