Microsoft has wrapped up their E3 press conference for 2018 and right at the end of the event, there was a huge surprise with the company revealing that their hardware team is already starting work on the next generation Xbox console.
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer delivered the news, teasing to the world that their hardware team is committed to ‘setting the benchmark for console gaming’.
The most interesting thing about the statement was that Spencer mentioned Xbox consoles with a plural meaning that we may have not one but two new Xbox consoles on the way.
The company also revealed that the future will bring an Xbox streaming network that will allow gamers to play console quality games on any device including mobile phones.
It’s no secret that many believe the Xbox One X to be the most powerful console available on the market right now, so the fact that Microsoft are already working on a next-generation version of this is surely a mouth-watering prospect.
