The Xbox Anniversary Celebration event will take place on November 15th and will be full of nostalgic throwbacks over the past 20 years, exciting giveaways and unmissable announcements.
As we reported recently, you’ll get the first look at the third and final design from the adidas Originals by Xbox sneaker collaboration. There will no doubt be a huge number of other exclusive reveals during the event as well.
