Xbox Says Its Next Console Will Be ‘The Largest Technical Leap’ We’ve Ever Seen

We’ve barely hit the halfway point in the current console generation but Microsoft is already discussing plans for future Xbox consoles. Speaking during last night’s Official Xbox Podcast, Xbox president Sarah Bond talked a bit about the next generation of Xbox hardware and said that whatever comes after the Xbox Series X/S will be the “largest technical leap” we’ve ever seen from the company thus far.

Before the Xbox podcast, fans expressed concern that Xbox was leaving the console business after previous reports and rumours revealed that Microsoft had plans to port several exclusive titles over to other platforms. Xbox boss Phil Spencer later promised employees that Microsoft wouldn’t stop making consoles. Last night, we got a confirmation of that from several Xbox executives who spoke highly of the company’s plans to push forward with the next generation of hardware.

Sarah Bond said in the podcast:

“There’s some exciting stuff coming out in hardware that we’re going to share this holiday, and we’re also invested in the next generation roadmap. And what we’re really focused on there is delivering the largest technical leap you will have ever seen in a hardware generation, which makes it better for players and better for creators and the visions that they’re building.”

As many fans already pointed out, the full potential of the Xbox Series X has yet to be reached so it’s strange that Microsoft is already promising large technical leaps for its next-gen hardware. That said, Xbox is still committed to launching a number of first-party games this year showcasing some impressive visuals including Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 and Indiana Jones and The Great Circle.

During the podcast, Spencer revealed that four unnamed games (that aren’t Starfield or Indiana Jones) would be heading to other platforms soon. Thanks to a report from The Verge, we know that at least two of those games are Hi-Fi Rush and Pentiment. The other two were revealed by Japanese publication Famitsu to be Grounded and Sea of Thieves, the latter of which was rumoured a few weeks ago to be coming to PlayStation.
