If you are a fan of Xbox, you are probably already pretty excited. With the launch of the next-generation Xbox consoles just a little over a month away. Alongside big games like Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Gears Tactics, Cyberpunk 2077, and many more just around the corner. With so much Xbox information coming out on a regular basis, it is safe to say Xbox has been much better about its messaging this past year. Despite all the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to the industry. However, one of the biggest fan-focused events that Xbox hosted has been missing this year. That event was of course Xbox Fanfest. For those that aren’t familiar. Xbox Fanfest was a precursor event that brought Xbox fans together before Xbox’s E3 conference. It allowed fans to interact with Xbox developers, fellow fans, and even executives like Phil Spencer. It was a huge part of Xbox’s E3 showings and with the lack of E3 this year. It felt empty for many fans, who like many of us miss these big social events. However, it looks like Xbox is looking to bring Fanfest back in an all-digital format.
