Years of rumors about the imminent end of Xbox have finally been silenced by two Microsoft officials. And as it stands, the future of the Xbox console may not be that in peril afterall as "Project Scorpio" has been confirmed to be not the firm's last gaming platform.
During Microsoft's annual "spring showcase" event last week in San Francsico, Xbox Marketing exec Aaron Greenberg has affirmed that "Project Scorpio' won't be the end of the firm's console-making, as per Engadget. His response came after most companies are now opting to develop for minor upgrades on PC gaming.
Moreover, the same publication has shared that Greenberg has stressed a little about the future of Xbox. He revealed that the future of the gaming platform lies less on producing more generations of console and that it is all about establishing a community or a library in order to expand the verstaility of its hardware. As such, he stated that the future of Xbox will deal more on furthering its brand and widening its service. With the unreleased "Project Scorpio," it won't be so difficult now to imagine what features it may bring.
On the other hand, Twitter user @ahmedeqrini has essentially received the same response when he asked if "Project Scorpio" would be Microsoft's last console before heading to PC games. Phil Spencer of Xbox Microsoft has straightforwardly responded "No" to the query.
In related news, rival Sony Playstation has also been speculated whether its just released gaming platforms are Sony's last outings to the console industry. Its latest behavior of not adhering to the console customs has been noted by tech analysts and enthusiasts, fearing that it might also be the end for Sony in introducing more gaming console iterations. Nevertheless, the Japanese firm might still follow suit to Microsoft if the latter still decides to expand its roster.
