Xbox Doubles Down On Highly Ambitious Plans For Next-Gen Hardware

A couple of months ago, you may recall that Xbox's Sarah Bond appeared on the Official Xbox Podcast and claimed that the next generation of Xbox would feature the "largest technical leap you will have ever seen in a hardware generation".

This attracted a lot of attention for obvious reasons, although there was a bit of skepticism about whether Bond might have accidentally stated something that seemed beyond the realms of possibility. It certainly wasn't a mistake though, as Bond doubled down on these plans in a message to employees just recently:

"We are moving full speed ahead on our next generation hardware, focused on delivering the biggest technological leap ever in a generation."

That quote comes from a report by Windows Central, and Microsoft confirmed the correspondence was genuine. Bond did also talk about a few other topics, such as Xbox's recent achievements, and innovations in Gaming AI.

When you think of how big some of the leaps have been from generation-to-generation in the past, Xbox clearly seems extremely confident with whatever it's building right now. We're ready to be blown away when this new hardware arrives!
