Microsoft has been getting a lot of heat from fans after canceling Scalebound which was in development at Platinum Games. While Microsoft doesn’t have many exclusives to release in 2017, fans were looking forward to Xbox One Scorpio reveal which will launch in Holiday 2017.
However, Microsoft is yet to fully reveal the console and the company itself is not sure about when they can reveal it. While replying to a fan on Twitter, Xbox head, Phil Spencer, said that he is not sure if Xbox One Scorpio reveal will happen before E3 2017, but acknowledged that he knows that fans want it.

Specs for Xbox One Scorpio are still not known aside from the fact that it will have 6 TFLOPs of computational power and according to 343 Industries’ Frank O’ Conner, he might have seen the specs for Xbox One Scorpio and it is “beefier” than he expected.
Haha, although I probably “know” in that I might have seen it in a slide or something, it’s literally not something I have time to think about now and I actually couldn’t remember whatever specs I’ve been exposed to even if I was tortured. I literally couldn’t leak or answer a question that went beyond “Can I do this? Does it support that? How many of these could it render?” What I do remember is that it’s beefier than I expected.
Things are really not looking in the favor of Xbox given that Microsoft canceled Scalebound out of nowhere and now this. Microsoft seriously needs to reconsider its approach towards its games and hardware.
Do you think Microsoft would be able to reveal Xbox One Scorpio at this year’s E3? Let us know in the comments.
