A Microsoft representative has confirmed to GI.biz that X07, the company’s annual games event, has been cancelled. The rep has told in a podcast that Microsoft is going to “figure out” some way to hold a “different type of programme” sometime next year.
This “programme” has been revealed by another spokesperson. As per this report, the UK will get its own gaming event, however, timing is “still to be confirmed”, though he does state that it will be held before Christmas. This event will be exclusively from a UK point of view, he points out, saying that it won’t apply to Europe as a whole.
