Xbox One System Update News Coming This Week

Microsoft boss says to "pay attention" this week for news about the next update.


Curious about what's included with the Xbox One's next system update? You don't have much longer to wait to find out. Microsoft engineer Mike Ybarra says some news about this update will be shared in the coming week, though he didn't offer any other specifics.

Here's the tweet in question (via DualShockers):

Xbox One updates are typically made available first to Preview Program members before they are released publicly.

Outside of a small, "behind the-scenes" update that arrived earlier in January, the console hasn't received a new system update since November 2015's New Xbox One Experience. Holding back updates in December and January was an intentional move, as Microsoft said it wanted to focus on stability during the holiday season.

The next major update for Xbox One is coming in February, though Microsoft hasn't said what will be included with it. One possibility is the new party feature shown off in this video.
