Solicited by a user on Twitter, Phil Spencer, leader of Xbox, has advised fans to wait to see the games on the system, before they think about pre-ordering Project Scorpio, new console that Microsoft intends to market by the end of 2017.

Through social media, Spencer has also confirmed that the controller of Xbox One Elite will normally be compatible with Scorpio; and he wanted to reassure players that Microsoft is working hard because more and more games support the function of the cross-play between PC and Xbox console. As stated by Spencer, the feature is not present in Halo Wars 2 only because of problems with the engine of the game.

Recall that recently new leaked information of the alleged specifications of Xbox Scorpio on the network emerged. According to the hardware features listed in the leak, Xbox Scorpio should mount: a total memory of 13 GB (with 12 GDDR5X shared and 1GB DDR3 for apps and the console on standby), VEGA GPU (6.3 TFLOPS, 64 ROPS and 130 TMU, 950 Mhz, 64 ALU, GCN 4.0), a CPU based on the Ryzen technology (customized by Microsoft), a dedicated DSP audio chip, SoC product to 14 nm and a total capacity of between 6.5 and 7 Teraflops. Since this is simply a rumor, we invite you to take the news with a pinch of salt, waiting for a confirmation (or denial) by Microsoft.
