As we get closer and closer to the launch of the Xbox Series X|S, we’ve noticed more news coming out of Xbox. We’ve had the announcement of Bethesda’s acquisition, the confirmation of the launch lineup for the Xbox Series X|S, and now we’ve got a new mysterious teaser from Xbox ANZ as well. What could it mean? Well, we have a theory.
The teaser from Xbox ANZ comes in the form of a short gif. There’s not much there, simply some rippling waters and numbers that eagle eyed pundits might recognise as co-ordinates. Chucking those co-ordinates into Google Maps brings up Steamer Wharf, a wharf on Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, New Zealand. No other specifics have been given, but Xbox has added that the teaser will be explained in a couple of days and you won’t need to leave home to enjoy it.

With New Zealand being one of the few safe environments in the current COVID-19 climate and the country also being at the forefront of all midnight releases due to their timezone, we’re expecting this teaser will relate to a launch party or event for the Xbox Series X|S. This could then be streamed out to viewers around the world to enjoy safely from their homes.
Either way, we’ll likely know soon enough exactly what Xbox ANZ are teasing here, so keep your eyes on Rocket Chainsaw for more information as it becomes available.
