In the latest Xbox One news, Microsoft is reportedly planning to launch the console’s successor this year. Microsoft seems to have its game plan sorted out for 2017. The successor to the Xbox One console is likely to be called Project Scorpio.
The successor to the Xbox One is likely to be launched sometime later in 2017. As per reports, this new Project Scorpio will come with 4K resolution ready. This is expected to be a major wow factor along with VR compatibility.
Sources also hint at a possible Christmas release in 2017 for the successor to the Xbox One. Gadgets Now reports that 2017 has been announced as the year of the Project Scorpio. This has been declared by the marketing head at Xbox, Aaron Greenberg. He made this announcement in a tweet.
More on the Project
The Project Scorpio has been affectionately dubbed “the beast” for its sheer abilities. Josh Stein has already tweeted asking his followers whether they were thrilled about this release. For those not in the know, Stein is a community manager for Microsoft Studios.
He also inserted a dancing image in a gif with his tweet. These developments have spurred several fans to re-tweet and enquire about the product. Most enquiries have been addressed to the Head of Xbox products, Phil Spencer.
What Spencer Said
People have been clamoring for more information related to Project Scorpio. However, Spencer has firmly asked all fans to refrain from going overboard with their enthusiasm. IT Voice confirms these reports as well. There are also reports of how Spencer has talked of “waiting to hype” until games are shown.
It remains to be seen whether Project Scorpio can really manage to topple the popularity of its soon-to-be predecessor. With VR and 4K resolution as its major calling cards, it should certainly be a major money spinner for Microsoft.
