Responding to a user on Twitter, Xbox chief Phil Spencer said that Windows 10 will hit the Xbox One sometime after summer. If you were looking for some sort of clarification of that release window, you won’t find it here.
So, expect Windows 10 to integrate with the Xbox One sometime from this to August to the end of time. Joking aside, you can probably expect Windows 10 functionality on the Xbox One sometime before year’s end.
We don’t yet know what Windows 10 will bring to Microsoft’s console, but we do have some vague ideas. Back in January, Spencer said “We won’t see people using Excel on the Xbox,” which we’re sure dashed the dreams of many gamers worldwide. We do know that the initiative will introduce cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One on certain titles (despite the disadvantage of using a gamepad versus a player using a keyboard and mouse), and gamers will be able to stream games to PCs so long as they’re running Windows 10.
So, sit tight, and if you were really hoping to get some work done on the Xbox One sometime after summer, we’re really sorry about the Excel thing.
