Confirmed: Project Scorpio Reveal Set For E3

Posted on by Ryan


Phil Spencer confirmed on Xbox Wire that Project Scorpio will be revealed at E3 2017. Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference is set for Sunday, June 11 at 2:00pm CT. With a Holiday 2017 release, we’re also expecting a specific date and price to be announced.

Phil Spencer also briefed what to expect by saying..

“With Project Scorpio, we set a design goal of building the first true 4K console for gamers with an emphasis on compatibility so no one gets left behind. Once we locked that plan, we set our sights on building the world’s most powerful console development platform, which includes the new Xbox One Development Kit and a full suite of software to get every ounce of performance from the platform.

Like the retail console, we built this special dev kit by evaluating every piece, from hardware to software and tools, with developers and compatibility in mind. We paid attention to logistical details, like dramatically speeding up how quickly a developer can move their work between PC and dev kit, and made it easy to program and test changes at the literal press of a button on the front of the box. The goal is to let creators focus their time and energy on bringing their game to life, and less of it on getting up and running on new hardware.”
