According to Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello, there are "lots of cool things" coming to Xbox in the future. Writing on Twitter, Penello said he's not able to share these just yet

"Lots of cool things happening. I wish I could share, my friend," Penello said to a fan. Unfortunately, Penello did not provide any more details on what some of these new features might be or when they will be delivered.

Late last month, DayZ creator Dean Hall made a similar tease. After meeting with Microsoft to discuss a DayZ console port, Hall said he was shown some "really interesting" Xbox One features that he was not permitted to discuss publicly.

"There were definitely some things they said that I'm not allowed to talk about that I was like, 'Wow! That's interesting. Why don't you tell people that?' But I guess they want to make sure everything all goes together and that," Hall said at the time.

What could these interesting new Xbox One features be? One possibility is a full-game streaming service similar to Sony's PlayStation Now, which Penello told GameSpot at PAX Prime is something that Microsoft's Azure cloud servers are capable of delivering. Microsoft also intends to one day bring back its ambitious Family Sharing plan for digital Xbox One games. On top of that, Microsoft plans to extend its Games with Gold service to Xbox One in the future.
