It is rumored that we will see the Xbox 2 be revealed at E3 2019. With Microsoft confirming the run-time of their presentation, will we see this reveal?
Xbox Two Reveal at E3 2019?
Microsoft just announced that their presentation at E3 this year will be up to two hours long. This is slightly longer than the 100 minute presentation of last year. It is even significantly longer than the 90 minute presentation of E3 2016 and 2017. However, will we get an Xbox 2 reveal?

Previously, there has been a new Microsoft console rumoured for years since the arrival of the Xbox One. Many think that the reveal will take place in the same style as the Xbox One X Project Scorpio.
This means that we may not get a physical look at the new console. However, as with previous reveals we will most likely get some specifications. These could include teraflops, RAM, bandwith, CPU, SSD and RayTracing.

Previous Microsoft E3 Trends
Considering that Sony have had details of the PS5 released for a month now, it is highly anticipated that Microsoft will provide a follow-up of a new console sooner, rather than later. Also, it is no secret that Sony have pulled out of this year’s E3 which means the spotlight is well and truly on Microsoft. Surely they’ll provide us with something big?
In previous years, we have seen consoles revealed at E3 and released a year or so later. For example, the Xbox One X was first revealed at E3 2016 and released in November 2017. If we were to follow this trend, and the Xbox 2 was revealed at E3 2019, we could see the new console as early as 2020.
With E3 2019 commencing in a few weeks, we can only hope that the Xbox 2 will be revealed. What do you think?
Please note that the name XBOX 2 is simply a code name for the highly anticipated new console. There is no confirmation as to whether or not this console will be named as such.
