Microsoft plans to finally launch its new Xbox Live Avatars next month, according to new rumours.

Microsoft has recently announced that they'll be making a huge showing at this year's E3 conference with the Xbox team.

This was followed by a new report in The Verge, which claims that the new Avatars will be available to Xbox Insiders this month, followed by a full release in April.

This could mean that Microsoft won't have a huge presence inside the LA Convention Center like before.

The new Avatars are much more customisable than the current models, featuring more body types, props and costumes.

Margot Robbie Confirmed for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
As Tarantino continues to set a killer ensemble, Sony Pictures has dated the film for an August 9, 2019, release worldwide. DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, an ageing a western TV star, and Pitt will portray his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.

Xbox has moved its avatars to the Unity game engine for easier development. They're created to replace the avatars originally introduced alongside the Xbox 360 in 2008.

Microsoft and Xbox will still have a presence at the main LACC with a Mixer booth where show attendees can stream games, interact with new titles, and catch up on the E3 news live.

The Microsoft Theater will play host to Xbox's various official E3 2018 events, including the platform-holder's Media Briefing on 10th June at 1pm PT and Xbox FanFest activities, hands-on gameplay and demos for all E3 attendees. We don't have all the facts yet, including what games will be on the show floor, but it seems like they're going big this year. An Xbox E3 2018 Briefing will start on June 10th.

Although Microsoft will be dedicating most of its resources to the Microsoft Theater for E3 2018, the company assures fans it will maintain a "meaningful presence" at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the duration of this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
