Microsoft have announced the first Inside Xbox show in 2019 will happen on 05 February 2019. The episode is touted as having exclusive info for many titles, probably most notably for the Xbox One exclusives Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves.

Inside Xbox will pop up on 05 February 2019, at 14:00 PST or 22:00 UK time and its trailer is promising exclusive announcements for several games, such as Journey to the Savage Planet, Astroneer, The Division 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Metro Exodus, Jump Force as well as new reveals for some of them.

This is either an odd time to reveal anything for The Division 2 or a genius move to hype up the fans, since the game's beta preloads are scheduled to start one day later, with the beta itself kicking off on 07 February 2019. On the other hand, beta participants may want to steer clear if they want to capture that feeling of playing for the first time, with no spoilers.

Meanwhile, new reveals for Mortal Kombat 11 and Jump Force are probably what will bring in many viewers to the Inside Xbox 2019 debut. Full rosters have not been yet confirmed for either game and fans are eagerly waiting to see more. Ed Boon previously teased an old kombatant that has a new look, and it's possible we will get to see it during the show.

Metro Exodus has pretty much revealed everything it could without spoiling the game for the fans, but it will be featured on Inside Xbox regardless. The real kickers here will be the Xbox exclusives though - Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3. Sea of Thieves is due for another update, and Microsoft will likely not let this opportunity to announce it.

Crackdown 3 has been around for five years, with many development hurdles, but now it seems to be finally ready for release... soon. The game still doesn't have an official release date, except the February 2019 release window, so Inside Xbox might provide the actual day when it will be launched.
