Game Developers Conference is coming up in March and you can expect all the major names in the gaming industry to be a part of it.

Microsoft however, does not want to wait for that long to reveal what it has in store for the fans, as it has posted the list of sessions that the company will be hosting at the event.

As you would have expected, most of these sessions are related to Windows 10 and its integration with Xbox Live. Furthermore, DirectX 12 will be discussed largely during the conference. Check out the full list of sessions posted below:

  • The Future of Gaming Across the Microsoft Ecosystem: Creating Games Across Devices
