We’re less than 19 hours away from the start of X019. This year’s Xbox-centric fan event is being held at the Copper Box Arena in London and we’re sure to get lots of exciting news. One thing that a few of us were hoping was that we would get some news relating to Project Scarlett. I don’t think anyone really believed that they would use this event to do the full reveal of the next Xbox. However, there was always the possibility that they could have shared a few details. We could have got the name of the new system, a look at the controller, maybe a specification or two. Well, Aaron Greenberg (General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing) has taken to Twitter to announce that there won’t be any Project Scarlett announcements. You can check out the Tweet below –
Correct, next year is all about Project Scarlett, #X019 is all about the games!

While we won’t be getting any news relating to Project Scarlett one thing we will be getting is a MixPot. Well, at least, you will if you watch the event live on Mixer. This has kind of become the norm for Xbox events with different rewards each time. In the MixPot this time are an Obisidian wheel for Sea of Thieves, a “$5 Gears POP! X019 Promotional Pack”, and the chance to win a year’s subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Once again, this news was shared via a Tweet. This time it was from the official Xbox Twitter account. You can check the Tweet out below –

While these MixPot rewards are not the greatest, free stuff is free stuff. And for anyone who does win a year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, this is going to be a very good MixPot. Whether you want this MixPot or not, it is still worth watching X019 for all the glorious details about upcoming games that will be heading our way.
You can check out what we would like to see at X019 in this article. And keep your eyes peeled on Xbox Enthusiast over the next week as our own Ben Kerry will be on hand to check out X019 and will share his thoughts.
