Sony has confirmed that it once again will not be attending E3, but you can still look forward to a show put on by the team in green. Xbox head Phil Spencer took to Twitter to put minds at rest by staying that Microsoft will be attending E3 2020. It's business as usual for the Redmond-based company then this June, assumedly joined by the likes of Nintendo, Ubisoft, and Bethesda in revealing what's next for video games.

In a tweet sent out overnight, Spencer said that the firm looks forward to showing the world what it has been working on. “Our artform has consistently been propelled by the cross-section of creativity and technical progress. 2020 is a milestone year in that journey for Team Xbox.“

Much of its show will, of course, be dedicated to further revealing the Xbox Series X and its line-up of games. Don’t be surprised when those titles are also announced for Xbox One, however. No matter what happens, it's going to be interesting to see how Microsoft uses the limelight in Sony’s absence once more. Will third-party developers flock to the Xbox show in order to show off their next big projects? Possibly -- as long as PlayStation doesn’t schedule a conference around the same time somehwere completely off-site.
