Microsoft Will Reportedly Launch Next-Gen Xbox in 2020

Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

During its E3 press conference, Phil Spencer revealed Microsoft had acquired big studios such as Playground Games and Ninja Theory, and a completely new studio called The Initiative has also been opened with Crystal Dynamics veteran Darrell Gallagher at the helm. The report does not confirm when these devices will be released, but the most popular rumors at the moment suggest that 2020 is the anticipated year of arrival for whatever Microsoft is now working on. Anyway, we won't have any confirm soon, as Microsoft doesn't provide Xbox One sales data anymore and won't change this approach in the future.

"As the market becomes more digitally enabled and service based, console companies and publishers are starting to map out their longer-term strategies including the building out of subscription cloud gaming services", Harding-Rolls told AFP.

Scarlett, however, does not refer to a single console, Sams said.

The Redmond, Washington-based technology veteran has also invested heavily in machine learning, naming its Cortana digital assistant after an artificial intelligence character in blockbuster Xbox video game Halo. The next-generation Xbox console may also align better with Microsoft's upcoming video game streaming services.

"In this context, Microsoft's cloud division gives the company a natural advantage when trying to build a profitable business".

Speculation has suggested it was Microsoft who leaked news of the potential release in effort to get ahead of Sony, who recently announced a Playstation 5 console is unlikely to be released in the next three years.

Thurrott reported on Tuesday, June 12, that Microsoft is planning to release its next-generation Xbox console - and possibly more than one console - in 2020.

"Mobile has been a fantastic growth point for the industry", Gallagher said. That being said, specific details about these products are not yet available. But what's next for the popular gaming device?
