X019 is fast approaching and it's set to be a bigger event for Xbox taking the typical FanFest atmosphere, then expanding upon it. Some details surrounding what we'll see have already been confirmed and I thought it made sense to compile what to expect with the event. I'll also include what won't be there as some developers have already mentioned their exclusive titles won't be shown.

The setup was to counteract the typical Playstation Experience which isn't going on this year, but it is best to keep expectations minimal. Keep in mind that this is not a press type event, just purely focused on the stream and the traditional FanFest setup. There will be an Inside Xbox livestream that is set to the biggest ever apparently, that's according to the Xbox announcements. The detailed lists of expectations are below and broken down into three categories.
