It looks like some deep speculation has already started regarding next year’s E3. A source close to Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices Division has told BGR that Microsoft is planning to unveil its next Xbox console at next year’s E3. The console has, apparently, been in development since 2006.
This isn’t the first rumor to point at a 2012 E3 reveal. Earlier this month a source from Crytek told VideoGamer that the studio was working on a title for Microsoft’s next-gen platform, and that it was slated for a 2012 unveiling.
Of course, there has been no official word from either Microsoft or Crytek, and for now it is really nothing more than a rumor. Still, it would certainly stir things up for the Wii U if it turns out to be true.
