On January 21st, Xbox boss Phil Spencer will talk about the new operating system that Microsoft is currently working on. According to Spencer, Windows 10 is the best operating system ever created for gamers on the PC, and hinted towards some really interesting – gaming-related – announcements.
As Phil Spencer said:
“For the Xbox team, this is the beginning of our discussion with fans about the work that we’re doing to bring gaming to the Windows 10 operating system. It’s really nice to finally get to be able to talk about this. We’ll continue the conversation throughout the year.”
Whether this means that Microsoft will bring some Xbox One exclusive games to the PC remains a mystery. After all, we’ve heard those claims and before, so we strongly suggest keeping your expectations low.
So far, we know that DX12 is coming to Windows 10. It’s pretty much unclear yet whether this new API will be fully supported by Windows 7 and Windows 8, so here is hoping that MS won’t screw things up.
There have also been various rumors about Xbox One games coming to the PC. Not only that, but a tech demo of Forza was showcased running on DX12 a while back.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
