Microsoft has just announced that a new Xbox Console is on its way.

According to The Verge, Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has said, "I fully expect that you'll see another console from us [...] Our best customers are Xbox console customers, and I want to keep those people engaged both on the Xbox One and anything we might do in the future. I'm 100 percent committed to that."

He also added, "I don't want to dilute what the Xbox console customer feels. I want to expand what we're able to do for more customers."

So far, Microsoft has yet to make a formal announcement regarding their plans with the next generation Xbox.

It has been a great year for Microsoft's Xbox One which gives Microsoft a reason to continue improving the console.

First, Xbox One was updated in November with the New Xbox Experience. The Xbox One has been empowered with a revamped user interface and integrated Windows 10 that allowed players to easily connect with the community or with friends and easily navigate games, apps, movies and TV, and Music. The Xbox One was given backwards compatibility with more than 100 Xbox 360 games.

Second, the Xbox One turned out to be the best-selling console in October 2015. Based on a report by GameSpot, the NPD group released its monthly report with which Microsoft was able to claim in a statement that the Xbox One came out number one in terms of physical sale of console units.

According to GameSpot, Xbox VP Mike Nichols said in a statement, "The strength of the greatest games lineup in Xbox history drove record Xbox Live usage for October and made Xbox One the best-selling console in the U.S. with 81 percent growth compared to October 2014."
