Xbox officially teases next-gen console, promises 'major generational leap'

Do you ever glance over at your PlayStation 5 and/or Xbox Series X and wonder why you bothered with it? Just three years into the current gen, both Xbox and PlayStation are already looking to the future.

Earlier this week Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 5 has entered the "latter half" of its life, meaning the PlayStation 6 is far closer than any of us would like. Now, Xbox is already talking up the next-gen Xbox as if we're remotely ready to say goodbye to the Series X/S.

During a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast, during which Xbox boss Phil Spencer commented on the rampant exclusivity and third-party rumours, Xbox president Sarah Bond touched on the future of Xbox.

Specifically, she confirmed there will be a new Xbox console to compete with the PlayStation 6. She also said that it represents "The largest technical leap you've ever seen in a hardware generation."

Bond teased: "There's some exciting stuff coming out in hardware that we're going to share this holiday and we're also invested in the next generation roadmap. And what we're really focused on there is delivering the largest technical leap you will have ever seen in a hardware generation, which makes it better for players and better for creators and the visions that they're building."

Elsewhere on the podcast, Spencer confirmed that four Xbox exclusives are coming to PlayStation 5, though he stopped short of confirming which ones, exactly. We do know that Starfield will in fact remain exclusive, however.

"We think there's a good brand value for Xbox with these four games, but no promise beyond that," Spencer said. So if you're on those other platforms, and you see these four games coming, please don't take it as some signal that everything's coming. It's not and we're going to learn. There's really no fundamental change to how we think about exclusivity."
