According to a report published today, Microsoft could release the next generation Xbox console as early as 2013.
Sources from the industry have suggested that the next generation of the Xbox, we expect it to be called the Xbox 720, could well be unveiled at E3 2013 and the release will happen a few months later.
Multiple sources across the industry, from processor chip manufacturers to middleware firms, have told Develop they expect the console to be fully unveiled at E3 2013, months before its release. The collection of data points to a 2013 launch for the system across all main regions, though early 2014 remains a possibility.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has declined to comment on this.
With Xbox 360 currently the best selling console in the market, we don’t think Microsoft will rush unveiling its new console any time soon. What do you think of this? Let us know in comments.
