Microsoft is preparing a whole series of events over the coming months to present several new features around Windows, gaming and the cloud.
Microsoft’s year 2021 promises to be busy, at least in the first few months. As The Verge indicates, the Redmond firm plans to organize a series of events centered around three major themes: Windows, video games and working in the cloud.
The festivities start on February 4 with a presentation dedicated to productivity at work with undoubtedly an emphasis on Microsoft 365.

Microsoft will then continue with other similar meetings. Be careful, we are not talking about classic conferences such as Build and Ignite in which the company is used to discussing a wide range of services and products.
These are many additional events that are added to the group’s agenda to highlight more specific novelties. It remains to be seen which ones.
Windows 10X in the spotlight
The efforts around Windows 10X to compete with Chrome OS should in particular be highlighted, as well as more general optimizations in terms of security and interface on Windows 10. For the game part, Microsoft would like to unveil new things around his xCloud project and Xbox Game Pass on cloud gaming.
This Microsoft communication strategy is very likely motivated by the health context which has prompted many people to work from home. The multinational will certainly tackle this subject during its events and will perhaps take the habit of multiplying them if they are successful.
