After some time of silence, Microsoft started lifting the lid on the Project Scorpio console earlier this week, with some very interesting details on its specs which will put the console quite ahead of the PlayStation 4 Pro. With Phil Spencer reiterating recently that the company wants to focus on games during the E3, many hoped that a full unveiling of the console would be coming in the weeks before the event, but it seems like this won't be the case.
In a new post on the Xbox official website, Phil Spencer confirmed that the Project Scorpio unveiling will be coming at the E3 2017 this June.
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. 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.
Spencer also talked about Microsoft's goals with Scorpio, underlining how the console has been designed to be the best console to play multiplatform titles.
We’ve created the most powerful console with you in mind. We’ve created the most powerful development platform with our industry’s creators in mind. And, we’re unifying players across PC and console with Xbox Live, the fastest, most reliable multiplayer network and Beam, the next generation streaming service. Ultimately, we know you care most about great games, whether they be exclusive, multiplatform, independent or AAA. We are proud of the diverse lineup of games coming this year that will only be playable on Xbox One and will play better on Project Scorpio. We designed Project Scorpio to be the best console to play the blockbuster multiplatform games from our publishing partners, made it easy for recently released titles to upgrade to true 4K and for beloved, backward compatible titles to play better than ever before.
Project Scorpio launches on a yet to be confirmed date. We will keep you updated on Microsoft's powerful console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
