Phil Spencer on Project Scorpio’s Launch Date: “Schedule Looks Very Good” and Without “Issues”
Xbox head Phil Spencer took to Twitter to comment on a question regarding the launch date of Microsoft’s Project Scorpio.
Project Scorpio was unveiled during last year’s E3, and the mid-cycle Xbox One refreshment was announced to be released during this year’s holiday season. The console will be unveiled in full during Microsoft’s E3 conference next month.
“I’m proud of the progress made with Project Scorpio and what it will mean for the creators who fuel the passion of gamers around the world”, Spencer wrote last month. “On behalf of everyone at Team Xbox, thank you for your continued passion and support. We’re excited to unveil Project Scorpio and the amazing game experiences it powers at E3 this June.”
An actual release date for the Scorpio will most likely be announced by Spencer next month as well, but for those wondering if the console is still on track for a release later this year, the Xbox head reassured this is still the case.
The “schedule looks very good right now”, Spencer Tweeted. “No issues”, he added.
@Sn4kee Schedule looks very good right now, no issues.

As said, the console’s release date will follow next month, but based on previous new console releases, we’re looking at a November 2017 release for now.
Microsoft’s E3 press conference will take place on Sunday, June 11. The briefing will be followed up by the Xbox E3 2017 FanFest.
