Everything has been going pretty smoothly for Microsoft lately, including the majority of the approvals on acquisitions of significant firms like Activision Blizzard, Xbox Game Pass with over $2.9 billion in revenue, and the sales of Xbox consoles.
And now it looks like Microsoft is already thinking about the next Xbox console, as Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox, recently stated in an interview;
we have ideas about things that we might wanna try next, and how we might incorporate that either into the silicon work that we are doing, or the hardware that we are doing, or service work, we test it with our first party teams.
He added that they are already asking their first-party developers about what they wish they could do in their game today. He stated;
But it starts with asking them what are you thinking about doing next in your game
The interview makes it reasonably clear that Microsoft values the opinions of these developers, which is a perfect thing because these developers can raise the bar for Microsoft in its weaker areas.
AAA studios reportedly receive Mid-Gen PlayStation and Xbox Series console upgrade dev kits. Given the power of the most recent consoles and how consoles are struggling to maintain 60FPS in recent games like Gotham Knights and A Plague Tale: Requiem, mid-gen consoles ideally make sense to take performance to a new level.
Well, don’t get too excited about a new Xbox Series just yet because dev kits are usually sent a year or two in advance, there’s probably still a little while before it’s time to upgrade. Looking at past generations, Xbox 360 was launched in 2005 later its slim variant Xbox 360 S was launched in 2010, then the Xbox One in 2013, shortly followed by the Xbox One X in 2017.
We hope the best for the next Xbox and look forward to how well it performs. On that note, what do you think about Microsoft thinking about the next Xbox already? Let us know in the comments section.
