Like, when, if ever, will the rumoured Xbox Game Pass launch for Nintendo Switch happen? What will the new console currently dubbed 8216;Project Scarlett8217; be called? And with a shift to cloud-powered game streaming on the horizon, will Scarlett be the final Xbox console in the storied history of the platform?
Firstly, lets start with that name? Any chance the head of Xbox would be willing to let it slip ahead of next year8217;s release? Unfortunately not, but it8217;s mainly because Spencer says a decision hasn8217;t been made yet and Microsoft is pretty far from making one.

OK, with that out of the way, what about the future of the platform after Scarlett8217;s heyday has come and gone? When asked 8220;will there be another box8221; after Scarlett? Spencer replied: 8220;We8217;re not planning for Scarlett to be our last console. We8217;re continuing to invest in our hardware team.8221;
He went on: 8220;The thing for us post-Scarlett is what is that next inflection point for experience that would actually be meaningful. Beyond [Scarlett] I don8217;t know what that is, but we8217;re not planning for not doing another console.8221;
He said: 8220;That platform is different enough from an Xbox platform that it8217;s not trivial for us to just say those games will run there.8221; He added that bringing game streaming to Android is a priority and will be the 8220;natural first move.8221; Spencer didn8217;t say the Switch won8217;t get Game Pass at some point, but don8217;t expect it any time soon.
