The next Xbox, currently codenamed Durango, will be revealed to the world May 21, if a recent report is to be believed.
The Verge has claimed that Microsoft’s unveiling of its next-generation hardware, an event previously scheduled to take place April 24, will now occur May 21. The website’s sources are very familiar with Microsoft’s Xbox plans, and understand that the meeting, which will focus on the future of the Xbox as a brand, will be at a small venue.
Microsoft’s next Xbox will likely debut later this year, have an always-online infrastructure and be based on Windows 8 architecture. A full unveiling at E3 is expected, which takes place in early June. The Verge also states that Microsoft has reminded employees that any sort of communication that even lightly references the Durango must remain confidential. This was said not long after the issues with Microsoft Studios’ Creative Director Adam Orth.
