Microsoft has revealed some details about its strategy in the gaming industry through leaked internal emails. The documents reveal that the company is planning to launch its new console in 2028, if no changes occur along the way.
During an internal meeting, Microsoft executives such as Satya Nadella, Amy Hood, and Phil Spencer discussed the company’s future in the gaming sector. Anuj Gosalia, Vice President of Immersive Experiences, raised the question of whether Microsoft will maintain the current console model or adopt a more flexible model similar to Windows.
Kevin Gammill, Vice President of Gaming Ecosystems, responded that they have already begun that journey with the Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series S/X consoles. He stated that they need to be even more flexible with the next generation of consoles, but also offer developers the opportunity to leverage the unique capabilities of the hardware. Therefore, the current plan is to launch the new console in 2028 as a flexible device for developers.
Furthermore, it has been confirmed that the game The Elder Scrolls VI will be available exclusively in the Xbox ecosystem. This means that PlayStation 5 players will not be able to enjoy Bethesda’s upcoming adventure, following Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax.
In summary, Microsoft plans to launch its new console in 2028, offering a flexible device for developers. Additionally, it has been confirmed that The Elder Scrolls VI game will be exclusive to the Xbox platform.
