Xbox’s platform development manager has teased “exciting” new features coming to Series X and S, saying that what has been released for the console so far is “just the beginning.”
Speaking of the latest official Xbox podcast, host Jason Ronald said that these new platform announcements would come as early as “in the coming months.”
Programming director Larry Hryb added that “there will be a lot … we can not really say too much” and teased it, “I think we will have [Jason Ronald back] on rather than later. ”
Ronald said: “As a team, we are just very excited about this first response from fans around the world. At launch, we always say it internally, this is really just the beginning. We have many very exciting things coming down the pipeline in the coming months and years to come.
He added: “We are also working very closely with key game developers from across the industry to truly take full advantage of all the next generation capabilities we put into the Xbox Series S and Series X.
“We are very excited as we get further into the year and closer to this holiday to start sharing more of the details of what’s evolving and how you can really benefit from these next generation platforms.”

The platform development manager said that his team had taken a longer break after the launch of the Xbox Series X and S in November last year, and that he saw it as an opportunity to “sit back and just listen to society and listen to how people use the consoles. , what they are excited about, areas that we can improve. ”
“Now that the team is back, we’re starting to release a series of updates,” he said.
“One area we really focused on was at launch. We had to disable fast resume, on some titles in the launch window,” he explained. “The team has worked very hard to be able to reactivate these titles, so that people get the great, fast CV experience on all the titles people play.
“In other areas we have seen reports of things like disconnecting controls as an example. This is another area that the team has really invested in to ensure that you only get the best class experience on the Xbox Series X and Series S. ”
Ronald went on to reveal that some areas the Xbox platform team focused on, lacked features on the Xbox app, and gave Series X and S users more control over Quick Resume.
“So in the next few months, we’ll be updating the Xbox mobile app to add things like Performance. And then other areas that we really focus on. When we think of the console experiences, we have listened to the feedback on improvements to broadcasting as an example, he said.
“Another thing is the sharing experience and the quality of things like DVR. And then I mentioned earlier about enabling fast resumption of even more titles since its launch. We have also seen the feedback that people want more understanding of how fast CV works and more control over the experience.
“These are all areas that have very high priorities for us, as we look at future updates in the coming months, and you will be able to start seeing some of these experiences in the Insider Rings very soon.”
