Xbox has announced a special celebration commemorating the 20th anniversary of the gaming brand, which started in 2001. It will last until 15 November 2021.
This year not only commemorates 20 years of Xbox, but it also marks the 20th anniversary of the Halo franchise. That magical moment when the Master Chief first stepped onto a mysterious ringworld has long been a hallmark of the Xbox experience, and over the last 20 years, Halo has become deeply embedded into the Xbox DNA.
The celebration starts today and continues through 15 November 2021.
