Xbox and Ubisoft have appeased disappointed fans following a livestream promising the first "gameplay" reveals for the Xbox Series X.
The stream, which happened on May 7, was teased by Microsoft a week in advance, with the explicit promise of next generation gameplay footage from third-party studios.
However, while the stream did showcase 13 games that will be on Xbox Series X, watching fans were critical of the apparent lack of promised gameplay footage.
As Eurogamer noted, the video attracted 34,000 dislikes, and the comments were crowded with complaints about the abundance of trailers assembled from cinematic cut-scenes.
"Had we not said anything and just shown May Inside Xbox show like we did last month, I suspect reactions might have been different," general manager of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg said on Twitter.
"Clearly we set some wrong expectations and that's on us. We appreciate all the feedback and can assure you we will take it all in and learn as a team."
The content of the stream was kept a secret, except for one game: Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which was confirmed as part of the showcase when it was revealed by Ubisoft earlier in the week.
