Microsoft has revealed it is actively working on a next-gen console, as well as a streaming game service that will work on any of its platforms, including mobile.

During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Xbox head Phil Spencer teased the team behind the Xbox One X is currently “deep into architecting the next Xbox consoles.” It’s unclear why he hinted that more than one console is in development, but it was also revealed there are plans to build a streaming service that will work across Xbox consoles, PCs, and smartphones.

“Our cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console gaming on any device,” Spencer said. The company teased the concept of a game-changing streaming service in late 2017, with the hint that it wouldn’t “require a console” to experience.

The Microsoft E3 showcase also revealed several new games and DLC will be coming soon, including Gears 5, Devil May Cry 5, Session, Forza Horizon 4, and more.
