On track to release next Holiday.
If you are expecting Microsoft to delay the launch of the Xbox Scorpio, you’re probably going to be disappointed. Speaking on Twitter today, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed that the Scorpio is making amazing progress, suggesting that the console is on track to meet its Holiday 2017 release date.
“I’m in a day-long review of where the team is on Scorpio right now,” Spencer said on Twitter in response to a fan. “Amazing progress and we are feeling good about schedule.”
That is doubtless good news for Xbox fans- the Scorpio, which Microsoft is building to be a ‘beast,’ is going to be the most powerful console ever made, with an incredible 6 TFLOPs GPU. It promises to rid the stigma of the underpowered Xbox One from around Microsoft’s neck, and the Xbox brand. Microsoft have regained some serious momentum of late– the Scorpio launch should be another feather in their cap, especially with the PS4 Pro being underwhelming.
