Microsoft planning Xbox event for May

Microsoft had originally been planning to unveil its next-generation Xbox details at an event in April, but The Verge has learned that the company has pushed this back to May. Windows watcher Paul Thurrott revealed recently that Microsoft is planning an Xbox event for May 21st, and we understand this date is accurate. This is the tentative date for a next-generation Xbox announcement, but Microsoft had originally planned an April 24th event.

Sources familiar with Microsoft’s Xbox plans have revealed that the event will be at a small venue with a focus on providing the very first details on the next Xbox, codenamed Durango, and Microsoft’s plans for Xbox in 2013. Recent rumors have focused on reports that Microsoft’s next Xbox may require an always-on internet connection. Comments by Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth, asking why there was drama over the always-on rumors and telling people to #dealwithit, forced Microsoft to issue an official apology. The Verge understands that Microsoft has reminded employees that any communications about the next-generation Xbox must remain confidential, following Orth’s comments.

Microsoft’s next Xbox is expected to debut later this year, with a full unveiling at E3 in early June. Microsoft recently revealed that Xbox is part of the agenda for its Build conference in late June, where developers will likely learn about the company’s next-generation plans. We understand that the next-generation Xbox software will be based on Windows 8, feeding into Microsoft’s strategy of placing Windows at the heart of its products and services. With an Xbox event in late May, alongside E3 and Build in june, it’s shaping up to be a busy summer for Xbox.
