Microsoft is expected talk more about its next Xbox, also known as Project Scorpio, this Thursday, according to video game news website Eurogamer.
The indie gaming news site revealed the announcement on Tuesday in a Tweet, noting its Digital Foundry news division would publish details on the new gaming machine.
Although Eurogamer and Digital Foundry did not say what Project Scorpio details they would publish, tech news website Windows Central said that the report would likely focus on the gaming console’s technical specifications. Windows Central first reported that Microsoft would provide more details of its new gaming console and briefed a media outlet on the announcement.
Microsoft (MSFT, +0.27%) first revealed its new Xbox console last summer during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, in Los Angeles. Project Scorpio is the codename of the gaming machine and “will be the next edition of the Xbox One family,” Microsoft’s head of the Microsoft's Xbox gaming division Phil Spencer said at the time.
Spencer said the new Xbox would be the most powerful gaming console on the market, support virtual reality technology, and be available by the 2017 holiday season.
Both Microsoft and Sony debuted their Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gaming consoles in November 2013.
In November 2016, Sony released its PlayStation 4 Pro console that’s more powerful than the standard PlayStation 4 console and supports 4K graphics, which requires a 4K television to see all of the visual improvements.
