We now know beyond the shadow of a doubt when we’ll learn the final name, price, and look of Project Scorpio, thanks to word straight from the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer.
Following the recent information blitz on the souped-up Xbox One model, which arrives later this year, Spencer summed up the biggest reveals in a post on the Xbox Wire. While pretty much everything Spencer touched on is a rehash of what we’ve already learned—about the impressive technical specs, the backward compatibility improvements, and the philosophy behind the box—he did close out with a clear promise for when we’ll learn more.
“We’re excited to unveil Project Scorpio and the amazing game experiences it powers at E3 this June,” Spencer said.
That confirms earlier statements from Eurogamer, which appeared to confirm we’d be seeing the final design at E3—though the specificity of that report still left some room for ambiguity. Perhaps Microsoft would announce the name or price, or show off final software running on Scorpio, before June. That now seems squarely out of the question, given the clarity of Spencer’s sign-off.
Microsoft’s E3 2017 press briefing begins Sunday, June 11th, at 2 p.m. PT. While the festivities will be held at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, odds are good you’ll be catching it streamed live online.
