“Join us on Mixer March 17-18 where we’ll be live-streaming content that we planned to share at this year’s Game Developers Conference. Starting at 10:00 am PT on the 17th, come learn about the latest cloud and game development technologies from Microsoft.”
The second day of livestreams includes a full hour starting at 18:40 GMT titled ‘Xbox Series X + Project xCloud = New Chapter in Gaming.’
Just before this slot there is a panel listed as discussing “How online services are defining the next generation of game development”.
