Project Scorpio News Rumored For This Week
It's going to be a big week for Project Scorpio (apparently).
With Project Scorpio scheduled to launch this holiday, there are still many unanswered questions about the console. Now, rumor has it that Microsoft may be gearing up to share some news--and very soon.
Tweets from Windows Central editor Jez Corden and Shinobi suggest that Microsoft may announce more details on the console's specs this week, while The Inner Circle says this might happen on Thursday, April 6, via Digital Foundry. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has weighed in as well (via NeoGAF).

Spencer himself responded to a tweet about a Scorpio reveal. He didn't give much away, but said he is happy with how support is coming together from first- and third-party developers. "You'll hear more soon. Sorry for the wait," he said.
Whenever the Scorpio news comes, you can be sure that we'll bring you all the details.
Project Scorpio will surely be a part of Microsoft's E3 2017 briefing in June, but this isn't the first time we've heard about a pre-E3 reveal. Microsoft may be planning to reveal some of the key details ahead of the show so it can focus more on games at the event, as Spencer said he wants to do.
Project Scorpio works with all Xbox One games and supports the controllers and other peripherals that you may already own. It boasts 6 teraflops of performance, 8 CPU cores, and 320GB/s memory bandwidth, which makes it the most powerful console ever made, according to Microsoft.
