Xbox Boss "Really Happy" With How Project Scorpio Is Coming Together

Phil Spencer says he wishes he could say more.


2017 is poised to be a big year for Microsoft and the Xbox brand. This holiday, the company will launch the mega-powerful Xbox console, Project Scorpio. Now, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has provided something of an update about how development is coming along for the system.

Responding to someone on Twitter who asked if Microsoft could show a sneak peek at the system, Spencer said, "Really wish I could, design team is doing their 'thing' again." Though he can't show anything or talk more specifically about it, Spencer said he is "really happy with what they've been able to do."

Now Playing: Project Scorpio Reactions at E3 2016

Spencer's comments this week follow what he said earlier this month, when he spoke out to say he is "absolutely" happy with what he's seeing so far. He added, "great that our first-party teams are getting engines up and tuned, great progress across studios, platform, and [hardware]."

At the time, Spencer also said he is unsure if Microsoft will show off Project Scorpio before E3 in June.

Microsoft has time and again referred to Project Scorpio as the "most powerful console ever made," so a premium price point is expected. Officially, pricing has not been announced. The console goes on sale in holiday 2017, though a specific release date has not been announced.
