The FTC’s lawsuit against Microsoft to prevent their acquisition of Activison-Blizzard has been going on for a while now, but it’s still in the discovery phase. Given the glacial pace at which the historic case is evolving, significant updates are rare – but documents relating to the next Xbox have been requested by the FTC (pdf), revealing for the first time that the next Xbox is, indeed, actively worked. This follows news that Sony is already working on a PS5 Pro, which means the PS6 is arguably not far behind. What happened? Looks like the new generation of consoles has just begun, and it’s apparently almost over – can you think of A good game exclusive to next-gen consoles?
(Demon’s Souls is a remake and does not count. Fight me.) Still, it feels like things in gaming are getting simultaneously faster and slower – AAA games now take the better part of a decade thanks to ever-increasing standards, while Console generations are apparently getting shorter and shorter. I can’t wait to play GTA 6 on the PS7.
