Rumor: Next-Gen Xbox Set to Arrive in 2020

Discussing the future of its business during its showcase ahead of the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed the company's engineers are looking into a streaming service.

The company unveiled a hefty slate of big games at its annual pre-E3 press conference, including Halo Infinite, a new installment in the Xbox's biggest franchise, shooter Gears of War and the racing game Forza Horizon 4.

Xbox previewed a flurry of new titles and deals with studios as the video-gaming division of Microsoft Corp. looks to compete more intensely with Sony Corp.'s PlayStation and a resurgent Nintendo Co.

Over the last six years, Playground Games has been helping to keep Microsoft's first-party efforts afloat with the Forza Horizon series.

Microsoft also revealed Forza Horizon 4 with lots of new features and an updated graphics interface for hardcore gamers. Spencer said Microsoft is "dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone".
