Back at E3 last year, Microsoft took the world by storm when they announced Project Scorpio, the next generation Xbox console. Since then, Microsoft has remained relatively quiet and has not officially or publicly said much about the system. Xbox boss Phil Spencer, however, recently took to Twitter to calm the nerves of a fan, and said that Xbox One will still be supported after Project Scorpio arrives.
Xbox One and S will be supported consoles for many years.

The Tweet from Phil Spencer should be reassuring for those worried that they would be left in the past. In fact, Microsoft already pointed out that all Xbox accessories will be backward compatible with the system and all Xbox One games will play on Scorpio, as well the Xbox One S.
In case you didn’t know, the next generation Xbox console will pack eight CPU cores and six teraflops of power and will have support for True 4K gaming. Set to ship out in Holiday of 2017, it even will support high frame rate VR. Phil Spencer has even come out and said that the company is making progress on the console, that it will have a console and not PC price, and that it “may be years” before a new Xbox is launched after Scorpio. A Microsoft whitepaper has also revealed more details about Project Scorpio. The whitepaper, titled “Reaching 4K and GPU Scaling Across Multiple Xbox Devices” is a look at what Microsoft has planned for ultra HD and inadvertently reveals more about Project Scorpio’s hardware.
