They can also visit the Xbox Plaza at LA Live, where the Mixer team is launching the Mixer Dome, a dedicated space where people can play and stream games.

While Xbox isn’t offering details on what it plans to show during E3 this year, it’s possible we’ll hear more about its next-gen consoles and exclusive titles like “Gears of War 5.” it’s also likely we’ll get some Game Pass and Project xCloud news as well.
