Following the surprise departure of Peter Moore from Microsoft, the shocks continue to come thick and fast as Aaron Greenberg, group product manager for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live, reveals the company is scrapping its European showcase X07.
Speaking on Squad XP's podcast, Greenberg says: "There is not a real X07 this year but I think that we will figure out some way to talk about 2008 some time at a different event or a different type of programme."
The X0 events have been running since 2001 when Microsoft officially introduced the Xbox to European journalists and retailers. Since then, the large-scale event has been used to make key announcements (like last year's Halo/Peter Jackson deal), unveil upcoming AAA titles (Halo Wars) and also show off new hardware.
Microsoft were unavailable to comment on the future of the event at the time of writing.
