Don't expect Xbox Scorpio news at tomorrow's Microsoft event

The show will focus on the future of Windows 10.


Xbox fans hoping for a glimpse of any and all things related to Scorpio at tomorrow's event are in for disappointment.

"We won't be talking about Scorpio at that event," tweeted Xbox boss Phil Spencer in response to a question from a fan (via GameSpot). Microsoft's October event, scheduled for tomorrow, October 26, at 10:00am Eastern / 7:00am Pacific, will focus on the future of Windows 10.

That doesn't mean the event will be entirely devoid of gaming-related news. Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb is in New York for the conference, though he hasn't divulged what business brought him there. Given that the November 2015 update for Xbox One integrated Windows 10 into the console, Hryb could be on hand to announce information related to gaming on Microsoft's current OS.

Microsoft revealed Scorpio, its updated Xbox One hardware due out sometime next year, at E3 back in June
