Xbox boss Phil Spencer answered a lot of fan questions today on Twitter. One of them had to do with the highly anticipated Project Scorpio console.
Whene Spencer was asked for a general status update regarding Project Scorpio, he said he is “absolutely” happy with what he’s seeing so far. He added, “great that our first-party teams are getting engines up and tuned, great progress across studios, platform, and [hardware].”
Microsoft has continued to refer to Project Scorpio was the “most powerful console ever made,” so a premium price point is expected. However, officially pricing has not yet been announced. The console has a general release window of holiday 2017, and a specific release date has not yet been announced.
Spencer said back in June 2016 that Microsoft could have released a new, more powerful Xbox One that year. However, the company decided against it because it wanted to wait until it was able to deliver “true” 4K gaming with six teraflops of performance.
On another front, Halo boss Frank O’Connor recently said that while he is unsure of Project Scorpio’s specs, they are “beefier” than he expected.
