Happy New Year/New Decade Xbots, Thread Open!

Context: In case it comes up, why the new thread? A few months back I had the idea of recreating Xbox Empire in a new thread to align with the start of the new generation, a fresh start for Xbox Empire while also putting behind ourselves the negative aspects of Gen 8 (There were a lot).

We had decided as a thread we would open it once Series X (Anaconda at the time) was revealed, which ended up getting revealed earlier than expect so instead I just decided to wait until the new year, cause what better time?

Future of Xbox is looking great and hopefully we'll build up a lot of hype in the run up to Series X launch, hopefully a much more positive and optimistic Empire this time around.

Credit to @OTBWY for the title banner! Don't forget to use the 'Subscribe to Thread' button at the top to keep track of the thread. The 'Shortcuts' for anything useful I may pin inside. Also if you want, as I'm restarting the Gamertag section, stick your Gamertags in the bottom of your comments for me to add.

Happy 2020! Great work @Ryuu96 for getting this new Xbox Empire thread live as the current generation winds down and the next one is now less than a year away. Great job @OTBWY on the new banner. I might have to hit you up for a banner or two for the sales articles I do, if you'd be interested. 

2020 is looking like a great year for Xbox Game Studios, with so many new releases.
