Xbox Scorpio News: Microsoft Facing Game Shortage Problems As Project Scorpio Release Date Nears

Xbox Scorpio is going to be released soon and Microsoft is possibly facing the shortage of games for their powerful console. This was recently revealed by the development team behind the popular Halo.

This could lead to loads of problems for the Xbox Scorpio as the release date for the console is nearing in the Holiday season 2017. Xbox Scorpio’s games list boasts only a handful of games including one or two blockbusters. This follows the news about Halo series games. It was revealed recently by the developer that no other AAA category Halo game will release on Xbox One.

According to the Halo franchise director Frank o’ Connor, while explaining it to GamesTM UK

“This holiday we don’t have a huge triple-A individual game coming out, so this year can be a good year to get our heads down on the next big things.”

This implies to a shortage of blockbuster Xbox One games this whole year. However, on the E3, more announcements are expected.

Microsoft’s E3 conference is going to take place on 11 June 2017.  It’ll be live-streamed and the timings will be 5 pm for North America and 10 pm for the UK.

In another round of news, it was speculated that the new Xbox Scorpio could launch in North America and the UK with a higher price tag. However, it’s just a speculation. Microsoft is going to reveal the price of Xbox Scorpio on the E3 gaming Expo.

In the meantime, a bunch of high-ranking analysts and experts have been predicting the Xbox Scorpio prices. While speaking to MCV, Garry Williams from Sold Out Sales and Marketing has said that according to his speculations, the cost of Xbox Scorpio could be $644.66. This means it’ll be available in about £499 in the UK.

Hopefully, it’ll not be that costly. If it is, it can cause serious problems for Microsoft. It will equally be hard to pay a price like that for all the fans as well. However, these are just the speculation. What’s the original Xbox Scorpio price, it’ll be revealed by Microsoft at the E3. Fans will have to wait until then to know it all.
