Although Microsoft has already confirmed that it does not intend to end the Xbox brand or stop manufacturing consoles, its next device could be very different from the Series X|S. According to Jez Corden of Windows Central, the company intends to open its platform even furtherthe result of its recent investments in expanding its games to other media.

On X/Twitter, Corden stated that the company will treat the platform as a “reference device” that will have well-established foundations in Windows. According to him, the treatment should be similar to what the company is giving to the Surface Pro 11, which is a reference for other AI PCs on the market.

In other words, the new Xbox should be closer to the idea of ​​a Steam Machine than a traditional console. This would give other manufacturers, such as ASUS and Lenovo, the possibility of creating their “own consoles” with more powerful hardware, but running the same titles.

Xbox could undergo drastic changes

If this really is the path that Microsoft will follow, the next generation of its console could come very close to the PC universe. With this, consumers could even buy games from stores like Steam or the Epic Games Store — something that Phil Spencer has already made it clear that this is the company’s future desire.
