Next-generation Xbox console to reportedly launch by 2020

This may be explained by the uptake of 4K games and the industry's desire to experience more games in 4K with the power of the Xbox One X. In addition, the Xbox Game Pass $9.99 monthly subscription does offer an incredibly hefty amount of content for the cost. The company refreshed the line up with the Xbox One X, a more powerful version of the device previous year.

Microsoft has said it is working on a new Cloud gaming service as it showcased its commitment to invest in gaming and announced studio acquisitions, tons of new games and new Xbox consoles. This might be referring to other devices that support the next-gen console.

But the competitive landscape will tilt away from console-market leading PlayStation to terrain more favorable to Xbox, he reasoned.

"We commit and harness the full breadth of our resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play", Xbox team leader Phil Spencer said at an E3 briefing.

Microsoft announced plenty of Xbox One games during its recent E3 press conference, includingHalo Infinite and Gears 5, but head of Xbox Phil Spencer also revealed that system architects are now working on the next-generation of Xbox systems. "As the market shifts, Microsoft is strongly positioned due to its Azure capability", Harding-Rolls said.

Fyre Festival Founder Billy McFarland Arrested On More Fraud Charges
The document continues on to explain that McFarland, "will face criminal charges on top of those to which he already pled guilty". Back in March , Billy McFarland pled guilty to two counts of federal wire fraud in connection to the Fyre Festival scandal.

As for what "series of devices" Microsoft could be working on, we've got some theories to share.

The research firm in question is IHS Markit, and they claim that Sony's PS4 has sold 76.6 million units and Microsoft's Xbox One has sold 39.1 million units globally as of March 2018. "The company's new gaming cloud division started at the end of past year, which is essentially Microsoft's version of 'Netflix for video games".

The company, however, did not give a specific timeline on when the service will be available.

Making the announcements ahead of the opening of gaming trade show E3 next week, the company previewed a range of exclusive titles and new instalments in popular series Halo Infinite and Gears 5.

Super-fast Internet service is seen as key to rich, seamless game play.
