Phil Spencer stopped by Xbox Wire to talk about Project Scorpio where he highlighted the importance of Scorpio to Xbox – “At Team Xbox we put gamers at the center of everything we do and we are driven to build the best platform on which to create and play games. (…) With Project Scorpio, we created a console with the goal of being the ultimate place for developers to realize their visions and the best place to play any Xbox game.”
He emphasized how “creativity and innovation” are driven by developers of all sizes – “A single person can launch a game that becomes a global phenomenon or teams of hundreds can create the industry’s biggest blockbuster (…) At GDC in March, we announced the Xbox Live Creators program, opening up access for anyone to create and publish a game to Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs. When you combine that program with dev mode, which enables any retail Xbox One to be a developer kit, you have the easiest path in the industry for game creators to publish their games broadly to console and PC, reaching millions of gamers around the world.”

From the ground up, Project Scorpio was the vision of Xbox to deliver the very first native 4K console to gamers – “Once we locked that plan, we set our sights on building the world’s most powerful console development platform, which includes the new Xbox One Development Kit and a full suite of software to get every ounce of performance from the platform (…) We paid attention to logistical details, like dramatically speeding up how quickly a developer can move their work between PC and dev kit, and made it easy to program and test changes at the literal press of a button on the front of the box.”
He ends the blog post by saying how proud he is with Project Scorpio – “I’m proud of the progress made with Project Scorpio and what it will mean for the creators who fuel the passion of gamers around the world. On behalf of everyone at Team Xbox, thank you for your continued passion and support. We’re excited to unveil Project Scorpio and the amazing game experiences it powers at E3 this June.
We finally got the confirmation of Project Scorpio getting fully revealed in two months at E3.
